ALLIGATOR HUNTING - Private Land

Private land alligator hunts are conducted year round. On this alligator hunt we target the specific size gator that the client is looking for. Expect to glass many alligators in ponds and reservoirs from a distance. Once the right size gator is spotted, a stalk is then started.  Don’t let alligators fool you, they have excellent sense of smell, hearing, eyesight, and can also feel vibrations. Getting within comfortable shooting range can be a challenge since the target is a little bigger then a quarter.


ALLIGATOR HUNTING  Public Land

Do not misinterpret “public land alligator hunt”. This is one of the highest success alligator hunts in the country. Seminole Prairie Safaris offer both a sport gator hunt and a trophy gator hunt. You can leave your rifle at home as this alligator hunt is done with either a crossbow, compound bow, or harpoon.

Florida Sport Alligator Hunt
On the sport gator hunt we go after a 7-8 ft. gator and cruise around the marshes on an air-boat until we get close enough to take a shot. Once an arrow or harpoon dart is in the gator you will be grabbing a hold of the line and fighting him back to the boat. You will then deliver a 44 magnum from a bang stick to the alligators head. Expect a 9ft plus gator on the trophy gator hunt with most of these Florida gators in the 10-11ft. range. This Florida Alligator hunt is primarily done out of modified jon-boat or pontoon boat. The adrenaline rush is incredible bringing in one of these amazing animals.

Florida Trophy Alligator Hunt
Once we spot a trophy gator in the open water, we drop our bait (either rotten boar lung or rotten chicken) near the gator which is tied off to a large fishing rod and reel. We then put out a few hundred yards of line and wait for the gator to pop back up and eat the bait. Once he does the fight is on. Once an arrow or harpoon dart is in the gator you will be grabbing  a hold of the line and fight him back to the boat. Then deliver a 44 magnum from a bang stick to the alligators head. The adrenaline rush is incredible bringing in one of these amazing animals.
