How We Hunt Swamp Lizards:
We pre-scout our trophy hunts prior to your arrival. Our smaller alligators (less than eight feet) scouting is not necessary as we have hundreds on our different private ranches.
We offer daytime private lands hunts year-round for clients interested in harvesting alligators with the use of a firearm on a spot and stalk safari style hunt. These hunts allow the client to use rifles or handguns for the harvest. Rifles in calibers 243, 270, 30-06 are a great choice and handguns in calibers 357, .44 and .45 are best.
We have all necessary equipment available for hunting alligator in any fasion. We have any required firearm available for our clients. The use of any of our equipment and firearms is included in the hunt and is offered at no additional charge.
Upon arrival you will be required to shoot the desired weapon of choice to prove accuracy of the weapon and your shooting ability. We will discuss shot placement on the alligator depending on the angle of the required shot. Our shots average approximately thirty yards. We do utilize African style shooting sticks for a rest.
Nighttime Alligator Hunts:
This option is the best for clients interested in utilizing a recurve bow, compound bow, crossbow, harpoon or fishing rod for the capture and a bang stick for the harvest. Our nighttime hunts are conducted with the use of airboats, flat boats, or bay boats. These hunts are like our public waters hunts except they are offered year-round. We have over 600 acres of private lakes for use in these hunts.
IF USING A BOW, you should have a minimum of thirty-five pounds draw weight and should be rigged with a bow fishing reel attachment with a retrieval line of 200-pound test minimum.
Our night hunters should wear dark clothing on the airboats as light-colored clothing reflects light.
