This gator and deer have been in every lake in the country. Here is supposedly the correct account:

I knew that this was taken at Harris Neck. Unfortunately, this place is only a FEW miles from where we ski in the Altamaha River here in South Ga.! I personally have seen gators this big swimming where we ski, and they are not afraid of us! Most of the time an alligator will not be aggressive, but these huge ones don't run unless the boat gets right up on top of him! We're all waiting for the day when one of us Hydrofoilers hits one under water! :eek:

Photo shop!


Isn't it illegal or something to just kill a gator? Just asking, I have no clue....



Edit: Just checked out that site...I take back the photo shop comment.

There are some pretty strict laws governing gator hunting, but you can get a license. Poaching gators though will get you put in prison.

I dont think thats exactly a just punishment for poaching. HOw bout some fines, maybe community service, or some jail time, but prison....WOW. I just pictured some poor guy sitting in prison next to these axe murderer, rapist, armed robbers, "so what you in for?....... Uh....poaching alligators :o "

I'll eat a poached egg ever once in a while, but poached alligator? Must take a really big pot to boil the water?

I may have only 5 months to ski--but damn---I'll take it considering the only thing in the water that big is my neighbors wife. And she doesn't bite!! (i think) ;)

You can hunt alligators in florida with a permit. I have two friends who do it all the time. Large ones such as pictured are rare. Most large ones are 10' - 12'
Here is another outfit that provides hunts.

and some more pictures.
We wakeboard on the Suwannee river, and see Gators on the bank all the time. Small , and Large.

It does appear there is a problem in South florida with the Pythons.

I heard that they are starting to put a tracking devise on a few of the snakes they catch and the snake with the devise is leading the hunters to other snakes. I have seen some vicious snake scenes on the news lately. I tell you, I wouldn't ski in those waters if it were the last thing I did. Snakes scare the s*** out of me! B

Are they house dogs and let out to crap in your yard too? Ex-Lax in some twinkies will really mess up the inside of the house and after about 2 entire carpet/rug/floor cleanings, the neighbors will get the message!
