Gator Tags about sold out??

Postby mgoldschmidt » Mon Jun 18, 2007 9:22 am ... ype=200801

Not much available...

In short, this year all Gator Trappers were only allowed 2 tags per purchase during the first phase of sales. (last week)

Years past, any Gator Trapper could purchase multiple tags during the first phase of sales (last week) Multiples means as many as they wanted in their licensed body of water.

This years sales has given a chances for a lot more hunters to have the opportunity for a gator hunt.

With that in mind, the Trappers who purchase multiple tags to be used for guided trophy hunts in the years past, do not have that opportunity this year.

So, be prepared for many boats and new hunters in your hunt area.

Low waters also could be a challenge for some hunters.

Consider an Airboat.

That is exactly what the hunt was intended to do, give as many average joes as possible the chance to hunt gators. It was never intended to be used as a source of income for guides and such. Good luck with your gator hunting. :yes:

Exactly as jim said, those who want a guided hunt had to buy their own permit and I would think the guides are charging less than years past.
Its a shame the guides coined the system as they done in the past and screwed the recreational hunters out of buying multiple permits, win some lose some, give and take.
