Gator Harvest trips are near Cocodrie, Louisiana. We have over 25,000 acres of marshland & swampland in Louisiana! We have been 100% successful in the last 20 years!!! The average size gator we catch is around 7 foot, but last year we caught several over 11 foot!! The biggest one we snagged last year was 11 foot 3 inches!!
Each gator hunter will sign a contract, complete an application for a Non-Resident Alligator Sport/Helper License & an Activity Release of Liability Form. We will pick your Alligator Sport/Helper License up for you at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries & have them ready for you to sign upon your arrival. If you are planning on a fishing trip as well, you may purchase your Non-Resident 3 Day Charter Fishing License by phone, online or in person upon your arrival.
We provide all meals and lodging for up to three nights, depending on your package. The gator hunt season begins the last Wednesday of August & runs 30 days. Since we only have 30 days to harvest gators each year, we are not able to cancel, transfer or refund payments for booked trips. However, we will still make you a pair of gator boots if you have to cancel your trip.
CLOTHING & WEAPONS
We suggest that you bring cool, breathable clothing - blue jeans, light jacket & hiking boots or rubber boots. You will also need earplugs, your driver's license, gator hunting license, eye protection , rain gear ("Frog Togs"), and a hat. We will harvest gators rain or shine!!
Shots fired will be relatively close range. We will provide weapons & use 22 mags. Bow & arrows are acceptable, however, if you choose to use a bow and you stick a gator that gets away, this will count as your gator!
