Default Gator mount is ready to come home!!

Memeber Texaswildlifeta just finished this one up for me just have to get time to go get it. Was one I'll never forget for sure. Shot him free swimming in the center of a really big pond with no hooks and poles and had to go swimming to find him after the shot. Adrenaline overload and the type of memories worth preserving

Too bad there wasn't a video of you going out after him. Probably would have beat Michael Phelps coming back.
