    I am very sorry about what happened to your pet gar.

    I'm sure that where he is now, there are streams and creeks
    for him to swim and frolic in with his friends, and there is plenty of
    shiners, chubs and alewife for him to devour. The best thing to
    comfort one after the loss of a pet gar is to go right out and get
    another one. And they are so cute when they're little.

    Thank you so much for the healing touch

    The gar will be waiting to jump into your arms on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

    So wonderful to know.

    Thank you.

    Look on the bright side, now you have a new pet gator and you know what he likes.

    I almost feel bad about the last gar I shot with my bow and didn't eat. I'm also somewhat conflicted about the chain pickerals I catch occasionally and use as fertilizer....trees love 'em though.

    10/4

    The Gar referenced eaten,original post,was shot via Ithaca lever action single shoot .22. Tamami Trail. Late 60's/early 70's.
    It was not my gun or my shot,although I did end up taking many legal and more appropriate .22 shots in the Glades thereafter.
    The connection to the Gar might be very much about the connection to the Glades........

    I have seen Ithaca lever single shot at shops and shows a couple of times.......always illicits images of Trail Gar.

    Nobody has put 1+1 together so far on this thread.

    If I was an alligator, I would most certainly seek out FLOD's alligator garfish.

    Garfish don't eat gators.
