Location

Make us part of your vacation! Our alligator hunting is only a short drive from popular Florida destinations such as Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, and the Walt Disney World Resort.

Alligators from Venus

Our alligator hunts are conducted in Venus, Florida, on a 70-acre private reservoir consisting of wetlands, small lakes, ponds, canals, and marsh which are prime alligator habitat. The alligators you will hunt vary from native residents to derelict dog killers and baby eaters brought to us for being a nuisance. Our experienced guides pre-scout and monitor the property daily to stay knowledgeable on the best spots.
