Gators on the Move
« on: September 15, 2018, 08:09:14 PM »

I have never head of this before but yesterday and today there have been multiple reports in our a area of gators walking through folks yards.  These properties are fairly close to the river, so it appears the gators are getting out of dodge before the big flood in a couple days.  I imagine the same is probably true for snakes.  Ick, I hate snakes but somehow gators make me a tad nervous.  A few years ago during gator mating season there was a gator under my truck and I did not notice until I started to climb in and it let out a growl.  Almost dumped a load in my pants on that one.  This is just not something we normally see here in the development.

I saw something about that on the news.  We don't have them and I don't know what I think about them and I'm not sure I want to find out.  Keep your distance from those guys.

Enjoying retirement in the great Pacific Northwest.  I've turned into a fair weather angler.  Why do it today when I can do it tomorrow?

Shoot em

I did reload the Judge with .45 cal just in case.  Usually have .410 shot shells loaded.  Think it will go with me for a while when out side especially out back near the ditch.  Will keep the shot shells in my jacket just incase mr. snake needs some direction.

Gator season has opened last Saturday & I saw a 12ft + one come in last Sunday. That thing was big it must have been eating good. They got it in the cove just to the left of the campground. With a very short walk thru the woods on the left side of the campground your there. About 10 years ago I had stopped in there to start my day. As I  got to the back of the cove I saw a friend waving at me, he had walked in & was wading. I waved back & was turning around so I would not disturb the area he was fishing when he started hollering & waving so I went back to see what he wanted. A huge gator was between him & the bank & he needed a ride. I told him The taxi ride was $500. I took him to the landing So he could change & get the rest of his gear off the bank. The next morning at the restaurant I let the troops know that he had to go change his clothes & that he was walking funny going up the pier.
