Are you out and about today? I've got a question about bow hunting for you. I was gonna ask you on the other forum but I can't get there today. What's up with that?

    218, I figured that was the problem. Your request on ask the experts got poofed! I couldn't find anyone to talk to so I thought I would ask you if anyone bow hunted for gators down there in Fla? I didn't want to misuse this forum and all

    as far as i know it is illegal to hunt gators in any way,except for a few trappers, who pick up gators that get to close to peoples homes.I have seen stuff on tv ,where the RedHead team were hunting them,with bows.It would not be a good way to do it.You need to get up on them at night ,standing on the bow of your boat,headlamp shinin` down in there eyes .The muzzle will only be maybe 3 to 5 ft. from their head,shoot him between the eyes,but about 1 inch back.This is the way it was done,it is the best way!!!.22mag,25-20,32-20,it dont take much,plus the lesser calibers dont go all the way thrugh to mess up the hide on the under side,which is the only valuable hide.It is not leagal,it is a serious offense.

    The method I mentioned is the right way,it is the way I watched my dad do it since I was a baby.It was a family afair,when daddy didn`t go alone he took me,mama,and little brother.he did it that way from the 1930s till 1968 ,when I was 8 years old.Ya see law breakin` was a way of life,and a family afair in them parts.

    Legal or not I've got someone to talk to! I got tired of waiting on our other forum and thought I'd check out hardcore talk. That was my first and last visit to that board!!!!!!!!!!!!!
