    Hebert's in Maurice and Cajun Grocer have gator sausage that is great in a gumbo. Prejean's Restaurant on Hwy 49 has gator cakes as well as fried gator and Nu Nu's has gator Sauce Piquant served over brown rice.

    David Gibson, I'm with you. We live in an area with numerous ponds and a tidal lake that I know contain Gators as I've seen them. I'm very hesitant to train my dogs there. No to mention all kinds of poisonous snakes that seem to be everywhere.

    That ain't gator "hunting" in LA. That's gator "shootin' fish in a barrel." In FL you can't use baited hooks and you can't shoot them with a firearm(except with a bang stick once you've got them alongside the boat). That said, I wish we did it like LA does it...looks easy and fun and conducive to some beer drinking, and not nearly as much hard work as our regs make it.
    I'll take the river down to still water and ride a pack of dogs.

    Gator fisherman can make a couple hundred bucks a day toting sports out to do the shooting. It is a very unique experience to be on one La. style.

    I went on one when they first opened the season 30 years ago. I was shooting them in the soft spot with a .22 Hornet.

    Unfortunately, alligator prices have been hit very hard by the worldwide recession. Prices are hovering around $7.00 per foot and very few have been trapped in the last two years. They have become such a nuisance that one land company down here has promised to pull all tags if the trappers don't thin them out. Our duck lease has limb lines on every boarder so hopefully the big ones will be caught this year. Saturday morning my S&W will be on my side just incase they get too friendly. Usually, you can just hit them in the head with a paddle to get your teal back.

    You gotta catchem with the paddle right behind the eyes to makem give back the bird. Remember, they are more afraid of you than you of them.
    Forgot something, always bring a Golden for the decoy dog.

    LOL. I thought that was what cats were for when duck hunting in the swamp?

    Bad Rich Bad. I firmly believe in avoiding things that can eat me. or my dog.
