Just talked to Reyna and he and Kelli both harvested a gator. One was 8 1/2 ft and the other was 5 1/2 ft. He said they will post pics later. Congrats to both!!

Well I'm just now finishing up skinning both gators and processing kelli's gator and got my gators meat under ice for later tonight. I got an 8'4" male and Kelli shot a 5'6" female. I stuck him with woodie square through the lungs and he just blew red everywhere, about 3-4 mins later I hit him with another And let him lay. Kelli wrestled her gator to the surface and had a nice battle with the lizard before putting two arrows in the broiler room we got hers out and went back to my lizard to find he still had enough fight in him that I I figured I'd put another in him and it sealed the deal after a good 2.5 hrs from the first hit. We had an absolute blast and those lizards are extremely deceiving as far as size estimation when there in the water I figured our two to be 2/3rds the size they were, they just grow and grow when the come out of the water. We both had good fights and have rope burns on our hands and Kelli's had a couple good jumps and thrashed. Those critters don't take to those arrows well.... They get pretty upset.

Kelli said this was her new favorite harvest and she's now 6 for 6 on her bowhunting career.... She impressed me today she was all over that gator, not a single hesitation.... Just full on in the moment
