Private Wetland Hunts:

These hunts are conducted year round on thousands of acres of Private Wetland throughout Central Florida. We use many different techniques to harvest alligators, however, predator style hunting tends to be our most successful method for this hunt. As you take an intense ride on an airboat or swamp buggy in search of gators, you will then hide out in the cattails or other swamp foliage while using a Fox Pro predator call to lure alligators within shooting or snatching distance. These hunts usually take place during the daytime so they are great for filming and pictures! These hunts are usually more laid back and better for groups, older people, and children of all ages.

Interesting Alligator Hunting Information:

  • Alligators have been on Earth for millions of years and are described as “living fossils”.
  • Alligators have an extremely strong bite but the muscles used to open the jaw are weak. Believe it or not, you can keep the mouth of an alligator closed with your bare hands.
  • An alligators brain is no larger than the size of a quarter.
  • The temperature of the egg determines the gender of the alligator.
  • The most preferred alligator meat is located in the tail and is very high in protein content.
  • Alligators were near extinct in the 1900’s; they are currently thriving and overpopulated!
