    Gator hunting in Wakulla County

    My buddy bought 2 tags today for Wakulla county. I agreed to take him if he would pay for the tag.

    I was thinking of the Ochlockonee river as being a good place to try. Any others?

    I'm sure Sopchoppy Adam would have some good advice. Anybody got one on private property and would like to participate in the hunt?

    The wakulla river has it's share. If yall aren't only giant hunting there's a 6-8 footer that is usually within 200 yards of the docks at Shell Island around sunset every evening.

    I might would go 8. I know fine colonel would be ok with 8 considering he can't swim and he thought this was a daylight activity. He's darker skin than I.

    Is the wakulla river open from the fence down to the refuge?

    I wish the tags were for Miccosukee. While fishing yesterday morning I had 5 different gators between 8-10' get 20 yds from me in the gheenoe. One of them even charged me and got to within 5' of the boat (and coming full speed) before I kicked the trolling motor in high gear. I've never seen them act like this in the past????

    I've seen some 4-6ft'ers in the mid section of Ock, but the ones in Wakulla river (that I've seen) are usually really small.
    12ft'ers all day long in the Everglades.

    I still hear a couple sounding off but not like in April and early May. This one particular gator followed me for 200 yds before it got aggressive. All of the others would stay close but wasn't a threat like the one was. Sorry for the derail, cary on.
