THAT IS SO F------- WRONG!!!!!!! Smartass rednecks...and they are laughing...shit and to hook the gator to which he CANT get away???? WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 500.00 for a pair of boots??? I hoe they rot off his feet. Does anyone realize the age of this gator???? To be 13 feet he's pretty well up in age.....

Yee haw! I got 'em, Bart...

ugh, there is some restaurant or there was years ago in the Everglades in Davie, Florida-way way way out in the swamp that used to serve gator-these people...have brain cell one and they live for that moment when they can crank up their airboats and git out there to git them some gator...

I've seen it all-trawling for gators with kittens and all the rest of their horrors...I know more about them than I want to.

They exalt in the bloodlust...these are the same meatballs that got baby pythons and when they started nibbling on their first born put them in the Glades and then couldn't wait to get out there with their blunderbusses and blow their heads off!

They are grotesque!

Hey Parnell, Josh...wahl, gawlee gee...all those shots in that video remind me of gang rape with the gator as the victim...but then all hunting PHOTOS remind me of they got their thirteen footer they're big men...and don't have to worry any of their other glaring inadequacies for a year or so...I reckon!

How absolutly SICKENING!! Its a shame he didn't bite your heads of at the same time :) They live quite peacefully 'away' from humans...and what happens...cretins go out killing them in their homeland!

Sorry this is disgusting,and barbaric...... how OLD do you think that alligator was? well because of those morons he wont get any older!
