Central Florida Big Game - Alligator Hunt!
It is our priority, with all of our alligator hunts,
that our clients have an enjoyable experience while harvesting their trophy of a
lifetime! We have a 100 % success rate with two nights of hunting, with our
clients taking many gators between 10 and 13 feet. Success is very important to
us, and we take great pride in our reputation.
Length: Days / Nights
We offer two hunting packages, and do not charge a "pay by the foot" trophy
fee - our rate is all inclusive! We feel that no one should have to count their
savings prior to pulling the trigger on a trophy of a lifetime - searching for
the biggest animal is one of the excitements of hunting. All hunting equipment
is provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own. All animals
harvested are yours - the meat is delicious, and the hides can be made into
wallets, belts or boots!
Our alligator hunts are conducted through the state's public alligator
hunting season. We can either hunt on your tags or ours. Our Hunting
Techniques The alligator hunts are conducted mainly during the nighttime hours -
one hour before sunset to one hour after sunrise. We hunt out of both airboats
and flats boats. Archery equipment is encouraged, but harpoons may be used if
preferred. The alligators' eyes are highly reflective when shined with a light
at night- this is how they we locate them in the marsh. The two techniques we
employ to harvest them are the "run and gun", and the "stalk". The "run and gun"
method is where the hunter will sit in the front of the airboat with a crossbow
or compound bow. We then drive through the marsh and look for a "shooter" gator.
When a good alligator is located, we'll drive up on them for the shot (very
action packed)! Stalking the gators is a little more relaxing, and is similar to
other types of big game hunting. We'll park the airboat on the edge of a body of
water where big gators are moving through (we'll still hunt different locations
throughout a night - we do not sit in one spot for very long). If interested, we
can also sightfish the alligators with a fishing pole. . . this is a very fun
way to harvest some of the larger more weary alligators.
We do not charge trophy fees, and separate out the pricing as such to
accomodate all hunters. Guaranteed kill, flat rate hunts, tend to put stress on
the guide to kill the first decent sized gator that is found. This usually ends
up in a stressful evening and a poor quality animal. Also, trophy fees can get
very expensive for the hunter wanting to harvest an alligator over 10 feet. Our
pricing allows the trophy hunter the opportunity to hunt multiple nights until
his or her prize has been captured without a big price tag. This price structure
also does not punish the average hunter with big fees if he or she takes a
trophy during the hunt.
