Other Hunting in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
WIFE'S First Nuisance Alligator Hunt
My wife Finally pulled the trigger after I didn't give her a choice about going on this hunt with a couple of good friends, Night started off buy seeing 3 Gators in the area it was called in, the first set of eyes was Boated and Landed in about Hour and a half and total lenght was 12 foot 6 inches and hauld in by rod and reel and a trouble hook, But the night was just getting started as I put the gun in my wifes hands and the next Alligator in the area was her's. Being she has never killed and animal, it was like a first deer hunt and kill and I am sure a lot of you remember how that was, well my next hook up was what I though would be about a 8-9 footer and after getting away the first time I got a good hook on him and it was on for the next 45 minutes, finally up he comes and after a little of schooling with my wife on where to shoot him before we left home, his head surfaced and POP, Holly crap, 1 shot and he heads to the bottom, she SCREAMS, 'I GOT HIM, I GOT HIM' IT was just a great sight to watch unfold, It was awesome and her Alligator cam in a 11'1 , and she tells me 20 minutes later that she was still shaking and say's Honey If this is anything like deer hunting I now know why you do it,'BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT BUCK FEVER FEELS LIKE, BUT I SURE KNOW WHAT ALLIGATOR FEVER IS' LOL that was. A day I will remember for sure..
