Not much penetration. Probably shooting a Rage!
Yeah that's Travis, he's keeps me out of trouble!! LOL
Thanks for sharing
Good luck, Robb
Sweet! Man that looks like fun! Congrats Tim!
Congrats. They're popping up everywhere now with all the low water.
Very nice! Way to go Tim.
Nice gators !
Very cool....congrats on the successful trip!
Very nice! What kind of setup do you guys use in those critters, Tim? Technique, methods, equipment, etc.
Crocodile Dundee is very jealous right now ;0)
Thanks Guys!! t-roy, we use both a Fox Pro call and mouth calls (baby Alligator) to bring them to us this time of year. In the sows I believe their Maternal instinct to protect comes to play and the Bulls, well they want an easy meal. I have a bow dedicated to Gators/Sharks/Gar but most guys use their hunting bows, we put Big Game reels on them (attaches where quiver would go), Big Game reels allow for a detachable float, you don't want to try to reel a big one in. Arrows are either muzzy aluminum or Cajun fiberglass with carbon fiber and I prefer the Steel-Force Gator heads with 375# line. All this is avalible at Lancaster Archery. Set it up use existing rest, if its a drop away (biscuit wont work but you can put a fishing biscuit on) use your 50-60 yard pin for a 13-15 yard shot and it should work well!
