This Saturday starts the Gator hunting season down here.
Anyone wants to go my buddy has an open slot. He gets a permit every year.
NOOOO I am NOTTTT going.
They hunt at night.
Take a float. Attach large hook with the deadist stinkinist chickin, man I mean rot and stink too the hook. Large hook.
Sit in boat, drink beverage of your choice. Usually malts.
Float goes under, follow float. Grab float and hang the frig on.
Like the old Whaling days. Gator tows boat till tired. Grown men sober up rather quickly.
Now the fun part. Take a bow, my buddy has a 180lb crossbow. Shoot Gator with bow.
Or a baseball bat too the head, or bang stick. No guns.
Mr. Gator is now really really pissed. Yup. Pissed.
Pull Mr. Gator too boat. Now the fun part.
Legally?? the Gator must have it's mouth secure, before the final whack to the noodle.
Like a noose around it's head then duct tape.
Do "NOT" fall overboard at this point. You will find out real quick those buddies you have in the boat are really not Rambo.
Mr. Gator is secure, then the coup de gra.
Pull Mr. Gator in the boat. Think he is dead. Haaa haaaa. Yah rite.
The pro trappers here put a 10ft. dead Gator in there freezer. Next morning the old man opened the freezer and Mr. gator came at him with a piss load of energy.
Bag em tag em and off to the processor.
Hide and Gator meat prices are down here due too the economy.
I am going to hook up with this girl who "processes Gators" who sells Gator heads, hides etc.
My buddy gives me all I want too eat. Real good meat.
Recipe: Cut in one inch squares. Beat the meat like veal to tenderize. Flour or corn meal breading. Salt pepper to taste.
Fry in oil. Do not overcook. Cook like it was fish. Overcooking, which most restaurants do, causes it to be tough.
Sniper69 was here and we had a feast. He loved it. He is kinda fat anyway so he liked everything I fed him.
Ptannjr also liked it. He is kinda big so I ain't gonna call him fatso.
Anyone interested let me know and I will check with her on prices, availability on heads and hides.
Market price after hunting season. More to follow. If they make it back to shore.
