Florida alligator hunters Don Lilly and Sean Curb from Spring Hill, Florida each bagged a 10 foot and 11 foot alligator using a 6mm scoped rifle during a morning of alligator hunting.
Here's a recent e-mail testimonial I received from the above alligator hunting party:
The gators were 10 and almost 11 foot. I've hunted in Africa and the mountains out west and I can't say much for the guides. But Lee our gator guide was having as much fun as we were.
He knew gators and we did what we had to do to fill our tags.
I really think this was the most fun I've had on a guided hunt.It all comes down to hunting something that can eat you and a guide that didn't try to control everything that you do. We never felt unsafe but we did mix it up a little with the gators. I think Lee will do pretty much what you want to do but the idea is to fill your tag with as big a gator as you can get. The shots were close but quick.
We used 6MM Ruger rifles and they were just fine.
If I wanted a pair of boot’s I would go again tomorrow.
