Doug travels to the freshwater lakes in Ocala, Florida with his sons and sports training Coach John Schaeffer to fill gator nuisance tags. Over the course of two days, the crew sets off on a Jon boat during daylight hours glassing for 25′ baited buoy lines amongst lily pads and downed trees.

Hunting with his TenPoint Venom Crossbow, Doug rigs it with a special fishing line designed for gator hunting. Using baby gator distress calls, the nighttime spotting pays off as hissing gators are hooked and death roll surface splashes add to the evening’s excitement.

Doug added, “Having never hunted gators before, I was naturally excited to experience this type of hunt with my sons. Let’s just say the crew felt a whole lot better once we safely landed the gators aboard after using Bang sticks loaded with Hornady 44 magnum bullets.”
