    I have taken people from out of state on $280 a gator hunts. Offered it to a bunch of people this year and nobody was interested.

    Glad because I wouldn’t have gotten this one more than likely.

    If you ever want to do one again drop me a line. I might know somebody with a permit that will sell one of their tags.

    This guy would have been $5,000-10,000 trophy fee through some of the operations.

    Awesome gator! But tell me more about all the whistling ducks! LOL. I hunted Florida last year and didn’t even see a BB or Fulvous! Saw tons of gators

    Generally speaking, where in Florida did you hunt? Don’t want specific names just the nearest town.


    A buddy of mine who is a guide and great duck boat builder always talks about “the circle of trust”. If you can convince me of being eligible I’m happy to show anybody. Keeping spots as little talked about as possible makes for the most consistent hunting.
