Ladies can Hunt Too, notice the decorator pink harpoon pole?

Stephanie Swerdlin with her pair of nines from Okeechobee.

The larger one she hit as it slid into the water from a perch it was resting on. Great shot!


Here is a pair of Ethan Altaratz (R) 10's from Polk County. The left one bite the harpoon in half.

George Camire & his son with a 9' & 11'. George harpooned the 11" at the edge of a weedline.

Once harpooned, the gator bolted into the weeds. Spent the better part of an hour extracting him.

Mike Brooks and his son Alexander after shopping for boots.


Kurt McAnly's gators from Polk County draw a crowd while we're filling out paperwork.

Everyone wants a closer look & to tell us their gator story.

Mobile police officer Brian Rear with his gator from Lake Eufala in Alabama. We were hooked onto a real monster but lost him after a half hour struggle. Another group harvested Alabama's second largest gator at 12-9 from the same stop the next night.

 Darn! Out of 50 tags issued for Lake Eufala, on 14 tags were filled.


Ray Roche & Captain Rick Silkworth with their 12' gator from Okeechobee. Dockside, the gator taped 12'4". (I measured it)
After icing & driving to Tampa, it taped 12-0. The shrinkage cost Ray 5th place in the Big Gator Shootout.
