That is awesome brother! Nice haul!
I have never had an interest in a gator hunt but that looked like some intense excitement!
Congrats and thanks for sharing!

I never get tire of seeing your beautiful wife and those big gators. Wish you had a TV show. I enjoy watching swamp people catching gators.

And yes, here in FL they set decoys with waders.....nobody ever gets bit.....
I did not envision anyone being "bit", I imagined people being eaten. I do not understand why people are not commonly attacked.

From way, way back:

Two Hippies sitting at the edge of a Florida pond, dabbling their feet in the water while sharing a joint.

First Hippie: "Dang! A gator just bit my foot off!"

Second Hippie: "Which one?"

First Hippie: "I dunno, man. Ya seen one gator, ya seen 'em all."

OK, so I jump out of airplanes from time to time for kicks.
But there is no way in hell I'm getting that close to a gator that big. No flippin' way at all.
