Private Wetland Alligator Hunt information:

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, safari style hunting tends to be our most successful method for private wetland alligator hunts. These hunts usually take place in the daytime so they provide great filming and picture opportunities!

Private Wetland hunts have NO weapon restrictions and are great for large groups, children, the elderly, and the handicapped! Each hunter must purchase an alligator trapping license for $51.50. We do not offer lodging and meals, but there are many affordable hotel and Airbnb options nearby.

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!
