    You need a different gator guide. We throw a harpoon in them. The point opens like a T and stays in. We have a 1/4'' rope attached to it and play them like a fish. If you cant move him just pressure on him until he tires out. In Georgia you cant shoot them with out a line attach to them. Tape their mouth before putting one in the boat and tie the legs up. We have had one that was knocked out but not dead it makes for a real boat ride.
    Your gator looks good nice job.

    That mount Al is just way to cool. I'm going to have to come over for a visit and get me one of those critters. By the way you would have to be the one to put duck tape on the mouth ;D ;D ;D ;D
