Gator Hunts

Get ready for an epic adventure!

Year Round Alligator Hunting with one of Florida’s Reputable Outfitter

Our year-round gator hunts take place across over 20,000 acres of private land throughout the untamed wilderness of South Florida. GatorRaiderz offers a wide variety of properties to choose from, each with its own unique challenges and thrills. Some areas are accessible by foot and buggy, while others can only be reached by the heart-pumping speed of an airboat.

When it comes to hunting these formidable creatures, we use a range of methods that will get your adrenaline pumping. Choose from throwing a snatch hook, using a crossbow, rifle, pistol, or even a harpoon. These 100% wild gators are not to be taken lightly, so get ready for an unforgettable hunt that could last all night.

Our hunts take place under the cover of darkness, adding an extra layer of excitement to the already heart-pounding experience. Whether you’re on land or in an airboat, you’ll have the chance to take down a trophy gator using your skills and courage alone. This is not a high fence or “set-up” hunt – it’s the real deal.

So what are you waiting for!?

Call us today to book your next adventure and experience the thrill of a lifetime.

And don’t forget to check out our Public Land hunts, which offer just as much excitement and adventure as our private land hunts.

Gator Hunting on Public Land

Hunt Monster Alligators with Florida’s Premier Hunting Outfitter

We specialize in hunting Florida’s beautiful lakes and rivers for huge alligators and can provide you with an awesome experience you’ll never forget.

We offer fully guided hunts that include all the different types of gear you may want to use from a simple re-curve bow to a laser-sighted cross bow. Depending on the lake, we do our hunts off an airboat or bay boat and can accommodate one to four persons. We have a 100% success rate for the past 4 straight years on 1-night hunts! However, we highly recommend 2 nights to allow you more time to hold out for your trophy of a lifetime. If we are able to fill your tags early, we can finish the night off with some bowfishing or frog gigging at no extra charge. We can also provide you with the processing and taxidermy needs for your gator.
