That's pretty darn cool! I've had gator several times and always enjoyed it. Are you taking any of it home?

Congrats!

26-Jan-17
Well done!

From: Forest bows

We going to make pizza!!

26-Jan-17
Cool! Congrats! Were you guys hunting in Louisiana? Please share the details of the hunt. Gator pizza afterwards?

10'. Hour long battle maybe less. Cool cool cool. Shot him out of a ground blind on the bank at 8 yards!! Pm me for outfitters info

From: willliamtell

What kind of spool and line did you use to reel him in? Just kidding, but don't those things have a brain the size of a tennis ball and if you don't brainkill them they go far and deep and are tough to recover? Any video to show? Gator I had in Oz was like a chewy (you guessed it) chicken. I could see a freezer stocked with gator, figure out how to prep/cook it to cut down on the chaw factor.

Bet you paid for the hunt with the $$ for the skin eh? Some doll in NYC thanks you ahead for her handbag or shoes or whatever.

Arrow has float do you know where he goes. Harpoon with a rope fight him and finish with regular arrow.

Our set up. Get arrow in him toss float befor u run out of string. Give him some time and then the fight is on!!!

From: Nick Muche

I didn't realize people hunted them from ground blinds. That looks and sounds very exciting! I always thought of gator hunting as some redneck deal in a boat or something like that... What you guys are doing sounds like a blast.

Nice gators! Pretty close shots?

From: Mark Watkins
26-Jan-17
Congrats Forest and Tim!!

We need some stats! Size/length? Weight? Age guess? Percent of meat that comes off one?

I like the ground blind idea!! That would be a blast sticking one of those at 8 yards.

Congrats to both of you!

From: kota-man

That would've been a BLAST guys...

Here comes a guess it's score (size) entry - 14 feet HUGE! What's P&Y base the record on - skull size? Looks like a book gator to me. More where this one came from too. Seems like a gator score should be based on overall length fresh.

From: APauls

How do you get the shot? Do they bait them up onto shore?

From: Nick Muche
27-Jan-17
What's the ideal shot placement for each shot on a gator?

27-Jan-17
www.Sit0brand.com has a corn based bait for gators:))

Ha Ha Ha! Get er done!!

Cool stuff ... congratulations

From: Medicinemann

I understand that the accepted method of killing these reptiles is to put an arrow through their lungs, and then follow the float....and I am guessing that they want you to use a barbed arrow, so it can't pull out.

In your opinion, if you had a pretty high energy set up and were shooting heavy arrows with a heavy two bladed broadhead, could you kill them with a brain shot? I understand that the target is small....I am just asking, could an arrow get through that thick skull of theirs?

From: Bou'bound
27-Jan-17
That is excellent. Any video of that. WOW!

From: Rut Nut
27-Jan-17
Wow! I didn't even know you could hunt them on land(or in a blind! ;-)

No bait just set up on sunning beaches they like. Barbed arrow anywhere in them finish arrow is brain after fighting him in. Video on Facebook mine or Tim's. Someone can add link to it please.

I thought maybe you went after that giant that was walking across the golf course that was on MSN

From: Forest bows

Regular arrows would kill them but they sink.

I just watched Cluch make a impossible stalk and even more impossible shot at 5:10 on the last hunt.......That's why we call him Cluch!!! Unreal!

Super adventure with some great trophies. Congrats. Thanks for sharing.

williamtell: Pope & Young Record book is for North America's 29 huntable animal species and gators are not included.

I'll bet SCI has a category for these beasts.

28-Jan-17
It was great hunting with you guys. I hope I get the chance to do it again sometime when I have more time.

Take care.
