Is there a way to get a tag or something?

The last I knew you had to put your name in a drawing and hope for the best. If your name gets pulled you had to go thru a class run by the state to show you how to handle the critters and such. Back in '89 when I put my name in and didn't get it the permit cost about $250 IIRC.

My boss got pulled and that is why I know what he had to do. He went out and bought a new Ranger bass boat so he had something to get on the water with. He got his limit in the first 2 weeks of Sept, and a gator got a nice chunk of the boat too.

That is about I can remember. The hoops you have to jump thru might have changed by now.

That's what I thought, a lottery. I dont want a bunch of 'em, just one. I'm thinking of moving and there's an 11 footer in the creek out back of the place.
What are the rules for nuisance gators?
If he attacks my cat can I shoot him? Not that a rule would stop me from shooting him in that case but I'd like to know in case it happens.

It's a trapping permit, and last tie I checked it was over $1000 for the permit.

Usually one of these.

Harpooning is a favorite.

State law requires hunters to catch an alligator before killing it. That could mean corralling a 200 pound, thrashing gator with massive teeth and steel-trap jaws before taking the fatal shot.

Floridians, and non-residents as well, may take up to 2 alligators.
