your own equipment and vessel, but are lacking a hands on
experience, and in need of guidance, the solution is our
Harvest Training Run. We will take you out on your harvest
area, before the season starts. We will advise you on how
to use your equipment, what to expect on your hunt, tips
on habits & strategy, along with help in lining up processors.
This trip is… very informative and will save you more
than the price in mistakes, equipment loss, damage, accidents,
Trip is about 4 hours for two people.
Some advice, hiring a guide is expensive, but when you add up equipment boat costs, time scouting and damage to boat and equipment, the costs is reasonable. Our guides have over 20 years experience handling gators we do this for a living handling nuisance gators year around, we also provide training for law enforcement and animal control. So please call us we like to talk about alligators.
To hunt, you will need $200 to $400 dollars of equipment
(harpoons, rods, lights, bang stick, lines), a boat, and
a truck. Miscellaneous items may run you another $50 to
$100 dollars (bug spray, tape, maps, charts, gaff). Depending
on your boat and truck, you may burn $15 to $75 dollars
per night in fuel. Add to these expenses any damage you
may do to your truck from lack of sleep or vessel from muck,
stumps, logs, rocks, vegetation or gator bites (they bite
VERY hard). Foot/prop damage $100 to $1,500, hull damage
$150 to $1,000’s! The point to be taken is this could
become a very expensive undertaking with little reward!
Weigh it out carefully if you go on your own.
