  1. Crazy. I don't understand why people get pets, and then just release them into the wild. I am assuming since its 3 feet long it got too big for the owners cage, so he or she just dumped him in the river. What a shame. I hope they get him before it gets too cold.

  2. Hmmm I could use a new wallet ;)

    Seems like a good opportunity for some of our bowfishing friends on this site.
  4. That is what I am talking about!!!

    What kind of explosive tip would be required to penetrate its hide?!
  6. Although I have never done it(would like to sometime) the archery tackle used is basicly beefed up carp gear. A heavy poundage bow, fiberglass arrow, heavy duty fish point, stout line, and reel.
  7. A regular bowfishing setup used for carp would be enough for a gator that size but after youve got lucky enough to stick an arrow in him you have to be ready to jump in the water on him and subdue him if he aint dead. People who hunt them usually use spears I think.
