Alligators in the warm lakes and rivers of Florida are very active at night. This is the time we pursue them and attempt our stalk into range. Bow or crossbow is the weapon you will be using to take the first shot. Once a gator is in close and the decision is made to take that animal, you will launch an arrow with a tip designed to go into the tough hide of the gator and lock inside the skin with very strong stainless steel barbs. A braided line from the tip is attached to a large float. Once hit, we fight the angry animal back to boat side and harpoon it to get a much heavier line attached.
Once we have the gator under control a bang stick is used to finish the animal. For those of you that do not know, a bang stick is a bullet on the end of a pole that is discharged when the end of the barrel is impacted into a hard object. The hard object being the alligators skull. All this may sound easy when reading but remember, this animal is very angry and is a major predator in his world and can be very dangerous.
