    I know exactly what you're talking about!

    How about last night when Liz and her friend caught that 13.5 footer! Had to laugh watching those two girls trying to get that 'tree shaker' in their boat.

    For you S Looisiana guys, we have signed Liz, Junior, RJ and Jean Paul to make appearences at the Outdoor Expo this Summer at the Cajundome & Convention Center. Troy Landy cost us 3k last Summer. This year he wants 15k! We'll pass but that's what happens when one becomes the spokesperson for the La. Lottery.

    Also on tap are the Duck Commanders and Blake Miquez of Top Shot.

    Great new show on the Military Channel called, "Triggers". Awesome show and we are also trying to get Wil Willis show host and former Army Ranger to the event as well.

    Had some fried gator with sweet potatoe fries at Prejeans' the other day, cost $11.95

    Just curious, why would gator meat be so expensive, $7-$10/lb? Is there not much edible on each lizard? Is supply limited? (i.e. tags available for hunting them)

    Expo dates are July 27-29th.

    "We" would be our 7 radio stations in Laffy and 5 station in Lake Chuck
    In Lake Chuck we have Kiss, The Gator99.5, Jamz107, 92.9 The Lake & Cajun

    Gerry, lots of demand for the meat keeps the price up.

    Supply and demand Gerry. There is a pretty good amount of meat on those larger gators but I prefer those in the 3' range since the tenderloin is much better.
