A guy I used to hunt a lot with called me up yesterday and asked me to apply for a 'gator tag for 2008. I told him I would. My state has a lottery for alligators and he got chosen in 2006. Once you get chosen, you have to skip a year before you can re apply.

The first time he went, he used a harpoon/spear. He says the next time he will use a crossbow. You must hunt them at night.

Application time is January. The season is in October, I think.

I believe there is an article about gator hunting in the last "Outdoor Life".

I do not hunt anything at night that eats back...And if I was to do something like that I'd pick a larger weapon then a bow, spear or a cross bow...I would want something that goes "BOOM!!".......

Well guys, I don't really have a choice. Because alligators are hunted while they are in the water, the danger of ricochet is serious enough that firearms are not allowed.

If I was you I'd be baiting them, wait till they are OUT of the water, then shoot with one of your FAL's. Shocked

Perhaps, it might be fun Tracker, especially if I can get on a range with Class 3 firearms to try out after the hunt. Laughing

Big knife. I like that. I think I might have enough testosterone for that.

We need to move this thread to the Primitive Weapons folder.

LOL Tracker, well I think if a Alligator was comming towards me 1 I'd have a rifle in my hands, and 2 the magazine is going to be emptied onto it and I'm going to hear a single "click" before I stop pushing the trigger on it (works best with semi-automatics, which just so happens thats the only type of firearm I own, semi-automatic rifles Cool ). Then a magazine change maybe required. Laughing
