    Default Gator dispatch question

    How do y'all do it?

    I have killed lots of them through the years. My go to has always been snag them on tuna rods and then use a hand line when they get close. This past weekend I tried the new harpoon I bought and it didnt work well. Went back to the hand line with a big snatch hook and a pistol and they dead.

    From the time you hook them until death, how do y'all do it? Friday night I used a .380 to the face and they were done. The pocket rocket stoned them. The reason I used that pistol is I left my .45 at the house.

    Use a steel force tip on your harpoon and you can drag them down the road with it,, all that muzzy bullshit is well bullshit

    Never had a problem with the muzzy tips. Used the same one for 4-5 gators.

    Also want to hit them in the side or somewhere soft, just not the scutes or head.

    The harpoon I've used on the few hunts I went on, you had to cut the damn thing out after he was dead. No way it was backing out. Not really sure what your setup is but ours must have been different.
