Here in the Sunshine State, there’s a Gator Season each summer that lasts for 30 days. The season opens today.

If you’d like to know more about gator hunting in these parts,  here’s a bulletin from our Fish And Wildlife Commission where you can get up to date on Gator Season if you wish.

I do hold a Hunting and Fishing license but won’t be out looking for gator hide this year. Don’t have the boat; don’t have the gear!

And you do need to pull tags for gators specifically, as you do in Florida for most game.

Haven’t done it, not likely I ever will but I’m thinking it’s about as intense as hunting gets.

For those of us who aren’t likely to ever join in for real, Swamp People on the History Channel is always an option!

  1. Interesting to note that there’s a gator season. But, I suppose, they grow and multiply as much as moose do here in Newfoundland and Labrador, hence, a ‘season’.

  2. Yeah, and gators are thriving. They were on an endangered list until sometime in the ’90s, I think. I’ll bet we’ve got some gator-inspired beer down here but I’d wager it’s not as good as Moosehead! Win for Canada!
