JP And Schawee Go Alligator Hunting-Part Two
« on: September 15, 2010, 01:54:54 AM »
Here's part two folks. We had a great hunt. It was a great day and I owe Schawee a big thank you for taking me alligator hunting, even though he almost sank us in alligator infested swamp.  :-D

I have a lot of footage so there will likely be a part three.

Y'all have a good one!

I hope we get to see how you season em up. Wondering how the tag system works. Florida used to issue tags by drawing, don't know how they issue the permits now.
be happy and make others happy.

JP, I bet your heart was thumping pretty fast when Schawee was in the water - that was only about a 10sq ft area at best. I know you'd shoot the crap out of it IF thinks got out of hand, but I'd bet a paycheck you wasn't getting outta that boat - I sure the fudge wasn't.

I think if you both went in, someone would discover your camera in a few years and put together the Swamp Witch Project - you'd make the big screen.

Awesome series!!!

And Schawee, I read the post about getting gator meat and your favorite recipe at Bud3 - sweet man sweet!!!

Thanks for the videos!!!  Fascinating, this wimpy northern boy always wondered how its done.  I was surprised how well one shot from a .22 put those armored beasts down, I expected them to fight longer.

My boys will be fascinated as well...their comment from the last video was something along the lines of "I wish we could go alligator hunting".  If it has scales and is dangerous, they're all about it!  Although they wouldn't have bothered with a cowardly gun...  :)

Great video.  I just have one thought.   You're going to need a bigger boat.   And you would never catch me out of the boat in the water with that gator.
But is does look like fun.  I would try it.

That sho makes for a good time! We can't get more than 2 tags here :(

I bet you could use that motor to whip up some margaritas in a 5gal bucket too!

One shot puts 'em down, at least on our hunt, as humane as can be expected. A very quick kill.

When we came across the big one, I wasn't lookin' for a tree shaka, I was lookin' for a tree!  :-D

It was real exciting folks.

That Schawee just jumps right on in the water with them.  :shock:

Yiks, think I'll stick to beekeeping. But it looks like you really had a great time.

I kept thinking now what will JP do when Schawee gets eaten by that gater in the water. I Kept praying for the motor to keep on going.

Hey folks Schawee gave me his world secret alligator sauce picante recipe tonight. I'm gonna make up a big batch real soon, can't wait!

Had some fried last night. It was real good.

As y'all could see, I didn't have to get outta the boat to get in the water.  :-D

Thanks for the info shawee, I had a buddy who had to call the local gator getter for a 12 foot nuisance gator (somewhere around 800 pounds), he lives on econfina creek, and that monster went for his dog - he called the dog away from his boatlaunch (good dog - I'da lost mine) the dog wanted to finish his drink, and the gator sat in the middle of the creek drooling, waiting for that dog to get just one more sip.
be happy and make others happy.
