Yeah he put it out there. I told BDL when we came in to get ready because it was going to be a good night. You could just tell by how many gators were up.

Got him right outside of Roland Cooper. We use pretty heavy gear so our fights don’t usually take long (not the bass and catfish rods with Bass Pro trebles you see a lot of gator hunters with). I think we were tied up on this one for about 10 minutes before we had him in the boat and the only reason it took that long is because he went to the bottom in 42 feet of water. We also get them in the boat live and dispatch them with a knife. The guys that pulled up to watch just couldn’t believe we weren’t using firearms. In Georgia I’m in Zone 1A (Lake Eufaula). I’ve been out 2 nights so far and seen some good gators. I’m going after a particular 13’+ so it’s been a little difficult passing the 10’s and even an 11’ so far. Actually missed him twice tonight because my hook just skidded over his scoots.

That ga side is nice.. me thinks south of georgetown bridge.. And yeah we use penn battlions. Thats where I would like to try next. Buddy of mine has a house directly behind rabbit island. Shine his house.. he hates it. lol

Its crazy that you can pretty much cast at 8-9 footers at ga ramp. I WILL SAY THIS MUCH. HIT THEM HARD NOW. First change of weather and you see exponentially less gators. They like the heat.

Yea that's why we're front loading the season because of the weather and because most of those Georgia hunters don't come out till labor day. It was windy this weekend so the gators weren't staying up too long. Once that first cold front hits the gators slow down but it's already hitting low 70s each night even with the hot days. The water is staying high 80s so its really foggy by day break. Makes for tough hunting. Also if that wind comes out of the north at all the gators just go down and stay down. I'm hoping with this rain coming through all week we'll catch a south wind going into next weekend and keep them up for a few days. I've killed so many 9-10.5 footers i'm ready for a giant to get in the boat so I've really got my heart set on this 13+. I may just eat tag soup rather than kill another 10'.

my nephew killed a nine footerSat night(I think) after being hooked up to a bigger one and losing it. First time going for him, learning curve is steep on gators


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

Congratulations to him!! It is a steep learning curve but for myself its addictive.

I just love being out there at night chasing them. I wish there was still money in being a nuisance hunter and I would do it rather than this contractor gig I have now. Because swamp people got so popular gator farms started popping up everywhere and now you can't make anything off the hide and meat plus the state doesn't allow you to sell a nuisance trip for a guide fee.

Personally I would rather relocate the gators, tag them and give them another shot..... usually they're just gators being gators. If you pull up on a nuisance gator a second time and its got a tag in it then it's got to go. I guess I don't have the knowledge of our state people though who just call folks to come in and kill them for harassing a neighborhood dog after they've been fed chicken legs for 5 years straight.

I've offered to help the Game Wardens here in north Alabama (District 1) and they don't want it. They call a particular nuisance hunter who has no idea what he's doing with gators. He may know how to remove other nuisance animals but I've seen what he's done to a few gators and it's horrible. I've handled plenty of 9' and under gators by myself and have no trouble getting them in the boat alive. When this guy's done it looks like the gator has been shot with a 30mm machine gun. I don't want to name names but Clem knows who he is because I've seen him comment on him a few times.

Eufaula gets rougher then any other water I have been on. I am shocked at the huge snags that would impale a boat but have no buey or flagging tape... Really awesome you get to be on them. That north NWR boundary line that runs like 2 miles and 100 yards both side of rover or so will get you if your not far enough up mouth of creek. Got my only tic ever that way. Hope you get him!

Finally got it done in Georgia last night. The 13’ gave us the run around for a few hours then we saw this guy in open water. Honestly we thought he was 12’ the way he dolphined up but he ended up measuring 11’1”. I don’t have an official weight on him yet because he bottomed out the 500lb scale so just know he’s fat. Good season this year!!

I've never been gator hunting and I don't believe that I have ever been around one that is dead.

But, based on the lengths of some the gators you folks have killed - if those had been on the "TV Show", they'd weighed easily 1,000 lbs.

BTW - congratulations to all, I love the pictures.

They would have said ours was 1500 they always talked up a 11-12’ as 900-1000#s.
