Swamp People Alligator Hunting in Louisiana
The swamp people would like to welcome you to Louisiana, home of the largest alligator population in the United States of America. Biologists estimate that over 1.5 million wild alligators call Louisiana their home and over 500 k alligators are grown in commercial alligator ventures within the state. With alligator numbers like this Louisiana is prime territory for swamp people and alligator hunts. If you want to go alligator hunting like the swamp people on the show you’ll need to make sure you take note of the alligator hunting season, which usually start the first Wednesday in September lasting for a period of 30 days. That’s not too long of an alligator hunting season so you better plan ahead and plan early if you want to have your own swamp people alligator hunt.
In order to get your alligator tags in this state an alligator hunter must own or lease land classified as wetland territory. These tags are given out by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife if and only you can prove that you have a sustainable enough environment for alligator hunts. This increases the difficulty of obtaining your alligator hunting tags especially if you are a tourist and aren’t familiar with the local swamp people. My suggestion in this case would be to contact a swamp person hoping they contract out for guided tours.
In order to successfully obtain and alligator hunting license from the Louisiana department of Wildlife a person must submit the following documentation prior to the alligator hunting season.
• A alligator hunting license application
• Proof and detail of property ownership whereas you will conduct the alligator hunt
• A detailed layout of the alligator hunting property
• Permission documentation from the landowner for given alligator hunt
If needed a lease may be obtained for your alligator hunt. This documentation along with 25$ should get you an alligator hunting license for the season. If you can’t get this documentation for your alligator hunts in order you can always hunt alligators with the accompaniment of a guide or other land owning swamp people. These alligator sport hunting licenses will set back alligator hunting enthusiasts 25$ for residents and 150$ for non residents.
According to the numbers Louisiana has them all beat harvesting over 30k wild and 280k farm raised alligators annually. This harvest accounts for millions of dollars of alligator hunting related products for the swamp people and the state. These strong numbers indicate that alligator hunting in Louisiana will be plentiful for the swamp people for quite some time into the future as long as their stocks of alligators run plentiful and those alligator hunters don’t bleed them too dry with their harvest. Hopefully this information will help you fellow swamp people up there achieve your dreams in going on your very first gator hunt. If you feel uncomfortable with hunting alligators on your own recruit ask some fellow swamp people to take you along or go on a swamp tour. You don’t necessarily have to kill an alligator in order to enjoy hunting alligator. This sport is a lifestyle for some swamp people and they take it very seriously because their livelihood depends on it. The casual swamp person needn’t hunt to enjoy. But if you do make sure you take a word of advice from the swamp people keep your gun loaded and a hook nearby.
