Worried about gators getting my dog while hunting a WMA

My buddy and I are going to Richard Yancey to go duck hunting tomorrow, and I’m new to Louisiana hunting. He wants my to bring my lab, but I’m worried a gator might get him. He told me with the cold front, they won’t be on the bottom, or move, and if they’re there, we’ll see them. Should I bring him or no?

You think so even if it’s going to be in the 40s tomorrow morning?

If you have a doubt, leave the dog home. Check it out and see for yourself how it looks. Better to have a dog at home than see him be lost and not be able to do anything about it. Bad feeling, I know.

If you bring him and witness losing him to a gator would you regret it. A lab looks just like a hog to a gator and hogs are abundant on Yancey. Gators are just eating machines, that’s all they know. It’s not a dog to a gator, just another meal.

You could bring your dog but keep him on a leash and use him only for lost birds in grass. A lab on a long leash will find lost birds in high grass, you just have to go in with him.
