Our hunts normally start out between 9-10a.m unless otherwise scheduled to take place earlier/later. Upon arrival we will meet up with you and discuss what size gator you're after and get licensing for each person participating in the hunt squared away. After going over the details of the hunt and getting each participants waiver signed, we then head out to do a spot-and-stalk type hunt. We will be hunting on foot and using 4x4 side by sides to hunt off of. Once we think we've located the right size gator you‘re after we will use offshore sized fishing rods to snag the gator with a treble hook, and you will fight it up to the bank. From there on out it is up to you to collect your trophy by using a rifle handgun, bow, etc. When the hunt is finished we take plenty of pictures, bring the kills to our processing facility, and discuss how much meat you can expect and what style mount you desire.
We recommend wearing a lightweight short or long sleeve shirt, close-toed shoes, and long pants. but we leave it totally up to you to wear what you feel you will be most comfortable in. It's not necessary to wear camouflage, but a lot of our clients prefer it. We will typically wear neutral or earth toned colors (green, brown, black, etc.) colored shirts. If you are sensitive to the sun we recommend wearing a hat, as well as sunscreen. Bug spray is always a great idea as we don't have a shortage of bugs here in Florida!
All hunters are required to have an Alligator Farming Agents license to hunt alligators in Florida. Licenses are available for purchase at www.myfwc.com or in our local Walmart at the outdoor sections counter located in Labelle for $51.50, regardless of residency. Anyone wishing to hunt alligators needs to have one of these two licenses. Youth (ages 15 and younger) are exempt from having to have an alligator farming agents license. Those possessing a Florida Resident Persons with Disabilities Hunting and Fishing License are exempt from the cost of an agent license but must still have one to assist in hunting alligators.
If people in your party/group are not going to participate in the hunt, they do not need any license or permit. All spectators are welcome to come along on your Townsend & Sons hunt free of charge. However, if they are 16 years old or older and would like to help you hunt alligators, they will also need to purchase the $51.50 Alligator Farming Agent License. Youth, ages 15 and younger, do not need an Agent License to assist in Alligator hunting.
