Bowhunts and on the spot pictures -- by Robert Hoague
Bowhunt For Florida Alligator
When the phone rand
and and David Mills asked me if I wanted to bowhunt alligator in Florida
I thought about all the work I had on the burner and respectfully declined.
The instant I hung up I realized I was making a mistake and I called him
right back. Based on past experience the work would still be there when
I got back.
The end result was that
myself and Kevin Sullivan of Innerloc Broadheads made arrangements to meet
David Mills in south Florida and test out Innerloc's new Gator Grapple
points and various Innerloc Bowfishing Arrows.

Innerloc Broadhead's Kevin Sullivan on the Airboat. We are ready for our
first Gator hunt. GO...
Racing For Gators
Unbelievably the alligator
held his ground, only 6 feet from the airboat. Although I've never hunted
them I lived in Florida for years and had seen gators before. But never
one like this. GO...
My bow in the left hand
and camera in the right I looked for the gator. Something yellow, in the
light caught my attention. Was it a Gator's eye? I didn't know. Then the
yellow image blinked. Go...
It was difficult to tell
if we had the gator or he had us. GO...
The gator is over there.
We are here. Now what do we do? GO...
What Does That Gater Look Like?
The fight is over. GO...
Day 2 - Is That A Gator Over There?
Yep, it sure is, and you
can see it in this picture. Day 2 of our gator hunt is Cadillac Style.
The Fight Is On
The gator popped up out
of the water, his jaws smashing together, in hopes of crushing David's
arm. The fight was on. GO...
Day 3 - Lets Scout
The Lake, First
Sharp took Kevin and I out on the lake two hours before sunset so we could
scout for alligators. We saw 37. And then we went gator hunting. GO...
Day 3 - Hunting
When we pulled away from
the boat ramp 8 sets of alligator eyes lit up in our spotlight. GO...
What Can't Happen, Happens
David made the airboat slowly
circle the gator and that made it move a couple of yards. Now I could see
it better and drew. GO...
Last Gator Hunt
Day #3 of our alligator
hunting adventure comes to an early morning end. GO...
