trip description for 10-11' Central Florida Gator Hunt in Orlando

Head out with Gator God Zac to hunt public waters around Central Florida. These gator hunts are super exciting and involved hunts targeting and stalking the right specimen, fighting him back to the boat with multiple rods, and taking home a trophy unlike any other! Captain Zac spends most of his time hunting the St. John's River estuary honing in on flow through laks like Lake Monroe, Lake Harney and others. In the state of Florida guns are not allowed to use a firearm at anypoint when killing a gator, and any bait used to attract a gator has to be attached to the boat in the state of Florida so there are no lines set over night. That's where having a profesional guide like Zac comes in handy: Knowledge of the water and the right equipment for the job are essential! He's been doing it for well over 10 years and is the best of the best. Depending on what you want to do Captain Zac either likes to sight cast on them with treble hooks or bait them from afar with beef lung or floating chickens at the end of a rod and reel. Baiting them on rod and reel is especially fun since you get to see the gator wallop your bait! This method is especially productive later in the season when the gators have grown wise to the boats in the area and all too often go under when you get within 300yds. After the gator has crushed and swallowed that beef lung or chicken, you and captain Zac will stalk up on him and throw an initial hook into him to act as an indicator. Applying to much pressure on that first hook will all too often break him off. Once the indicator is secured you and Captain Zac will throw a couple more treble hooks into him and fight him up to the boat. Once he is boat side Captain Zac will use his Bang Stick to dispatch the beast and haul him aboard to head back to the dock! Captain Zac has a handful of tags for these trips, but he highly reccomends his clients bring their own Alligator tag for these trips as well. **If you have you're own tag he will cut out the price you paid for your tag and give you a discounted rate!** Everything else is provided on board like rods, reels, baits, Bang Sticks, ropes, and a cooler for your beverages and snacks.

trip description for Okeechobee Alligator: 8’-8’11" in Okeechobee

*This trip includes one 8'-8'11" Gator!* Alligator hunting in Florida is not for the timid or faint of heart! Here we provide you with a safe, fun, and exciting alligator hunt year-round. We offer both private and public land alligator hunts. On our private land hunts, we either hunt nuisance gators that are a threat to people or animals on close or surrounding ranches or in our private hunting preserve - which guarantees a harvest. Our private land hunts are “spot and stalk” on a pond or canal. If we find a gator laying on a bank, we will try to sneak up as closely as possible to get a brain kill shot. The size of a gator’s brain is about the size of a golf ball. If we do not see one on a bank but in one of the ponds or canals, then it becomes alligator fishing. At that time the hunter will try to snag the gator and fight it on rod and reel until it tires out and surfaces. At that time, the hunter will take the shot at the gator on the surface. You can use rifle, handgun, bang stick or bow to harvest your alligator. With our public land hunts, the hunter is required to either apply and draw a tag via a state lottery system or purchase a state public land tag from one of our guides when available and in season. These hunts take place on either an air boat or a flats boat with a seasoned gator hunting guide. If you are successful and harvest your gator then we will be able to arrange for the processing of your meat and taxidermy service by a local licensed processor/taxidermist if desired. Read More

trip description for BYO Tag Gator Hunt in Crystal River

**Bring your own tag gator hunt** Embark on an adrenaline-fueled Gator Hunt like no other in Crystal River, FL! Led by the fearless Captain Leon, a true expert in alligator hunts, get ready to experience the thrill of a lifetime from August 15th through November 1. Sumnter County is the prime location for this unforgettable adventure, boasting a remarkable 90% success rate. Captain Leon's exceptional skills and knowledge will ensure you have the best chance of a successful hunt, making this a truly rewarding experience. The main game plan is to sneak up on these incredible creatures, throwing a treble hook in their back, and skillfully bringing them to the boat before dispatching them with precision. It's a thrilling challenge that only the most skilled hunters can conquer. But that's not all—Captain Leon's wild technique for handling sketchy alligators is a sight to behold! Instead of creeping up, he'll rig up a beef lung on a rod, open the bail, and haul ass at the gator, going max speed. He plans so that his lower unit is out of the water, and he'll watch the gator go down, dropping the bait on him as he flies past. Most of the time, the gator pops right back up where he was, finds the beef lungs, and chomps. If the gator pops up a ways off, i.e., doesn't see the lung, he tugs on the line to make a splash in the water, and it's almost always game over. Whether you're a seasoned hunter looking for the ultimate challenge or a thrill-seeker eager to experience the heart-pounding rush of a Gator Hunt, Captain Leon has you covered. Spaces are limited, and the remaining tags are disappearing fast, so secure your spot now for an adrenaline-pumping expedition like no other. Prepare for an exhilarating hunt, create memories to last a lifetime, and embrace the untamed beauty of Crystal River's Gator Country! Read More

trip description for Florida Gator Takedown- 8' in Okeechobee

*This trip is for up to 4 people, but its really priced per 8' gator. For example, if 1 person wants to shoot 3 gators then you need to select the 3 person option or if 2 people want to shoot 6 total gators then select 6 people.* Private land alligator hunts are conducted year round. On this alligator hunt we target the specific size gator that the client is looking for. Expect to glass many alligators in ponds and reservoirs from a distance. Once the right size gator is spotted, a stalk is then started. Don’t let alligators fool you, they have excellent sense of smell, hearing, eyesight, and can also feel vibrations. Getting within comfortable shooting range can be a challenge since the target is a little bigger then a quarter. Read More
