    Who else likes?

    I was surprised to find them using .22LR to dispatch a gator. I guess when you're that
    close and you get em in that soft spot behind the head it doesn't matter.

    Imma go get meah gata!

    it's a pretty good show....I was a bit surprised they're using a .22, even when they try to take a gator in open water. I do like though they're firearms are beat to heck and used as tools..maybe people will realize kydex holster wear is normal and not a bad thing on their carry weapon.

    there was a few times they got out a real hunting caliber to use at a distance but still couldnt hit crap.

    i like the show, ive spent alot of time in south LA and got to know the area and people like the guys on the show.

    they also use .22 to kill cows sometimes.

    I have watched a few episodes. CRAZY!! Can hardly imagine that there are those that do nothing but hunt alligators for a living.
    You can't get much more "backwoods" than that! :shock: LOL!

    Yeah and I can not believe people eat it. I tried it once when I was in louisiana. Was in the 11th grade on Christmas vacation. Though I was gonna puke at the table. It was fatty, greasy and tasted nothing like chicken. The moral of the story is.......The girls are hot in the bars, you get a free ride home at the age of 18 by the tow truck driver..who will also tow for free if your to drunk to drive and again the girls are hot. They are hot as long as some Cajun hasent whipped your ass for no reason while in the bar! :cool:

    I was in New Orleans last year for a convention and tried alligator for the first time. A group of guys met up at a popular eatery near the convention center (it was featured on a tv show for this sausage like dish they do). We got a plate of gator as an appetizer. I didn't think it was bad but then again all I could taste was the sauce they put on it (like buffalo/hot wing sauce). Two other guys at the table told us that they got pretty sick to the stomach from it. We all had a pretty good laugh as it was explained that the gator bit back and they were fortunate enough to be back at the hotel when trouble struck.

    When I first saw the previews for this show I was very interested. I thought it would be all about the culture. I still enjoy watching the show but was a little dissapointed that it was focused primarily on gator huntin'.

    I've never eaten alligator, but I have had crocodile several times in South Africa and Cuba. I think it is quite tasty!
