About Grandma Dean

Well, let me tell y’all ’bout Diane Dean, known far and wide ‘cross East Africa as “Bititi,” which, if ya say it right, sounds like “BEE-tee-tee.” 🌍 Now, them villagers, they gave her that fancy name, and it means “strong woman” in Swahili, so you know she ain’t no pushover. 💪🏞️

Now, picture this, partner: It was the time when the sun was fixin’ to set on them good ol’ days of safaris, back when Africa was one big ol’ wilderness stretchin’ far and wide. 🌅🦓 That’s when Diana decided to embark on her most thrillin’ adventure yet. 🌍🌟

She kicked things off in Nairobi and started her journey wanderin’ all ‘cross Kenya. 🌍🇰🇪 And wouldn’t ya know it, it was rainy season, bringin’ out some of the wildest critters Africa’s got to offer. 🌧️🐾

Now, here’s where it gets downright excitin’. As she was makin’ her way, Diana laid eyes on a crocodile hot on the heels of a mighty forest hog. 🐊🐗 But that crocodile didn’t have a clue who it was messin’ with ’cause Diana Dean, she’s sittin’ at the top of the food chain. 👑🦁

Diana, bless her heart, ain’t just tough as nails, she’s a talented javelin-thrower. She grabbed herself a good ol’ wooden spear and let it fly, droppin’ that pig in the blink of an eye. 🐗💨 But that crocodile, it was still hungry and slithered on over to the wounded hog. 🐊🤨

But Diana, she ain’t one to back down. She snatched up her trusty Winchester Model 70 and sent a bullet straight through that crocodile’s noggin. 💥 You can bet your boots that her huntin’ posse was cheerin’ like crazy. 🙌🎉 They’d never seen no one, especially a woman, takin’ down two different critters in the span of a few minutes. 🤠👏

Come nighttime, Diana shared her hard-earned spoils with the Kikuyu tribe. It was a feast fit for kings, with tusks and tails aplenty. 🔥 And let me tell ya, partner, that tale of hers was told ’round campfires in Africa for many a year to come. 🌌 It’s the stuff of legends, no doubt about it. 📖🌟

Two Hunts, One Day!

Grandma Dean's Tusk & Tail Combo lets you do two hunts in just a few hours!

Only in Florida

Florida alligators and wild hogs are the most sought-after game—and RGS has both at a discount!

Remember...It's a Size-range!

They all can’t be big ones…

Honey, let me lay it out straight for ya – they all can’t be big ol’ monsters, you know what I’m sayin’? Sometimes you gotta set your sights on the little fellas and not be lookin’ for a Hollywood blockbuster gator every time.

So, here’s the deal: Expect the smallest size in your size-range. And let me tell ya, if you end up wranglin’ in somethin’ bigger, it’s gonna be like findin’ a twenty-dollar bill in your jeans on laundry day – a sweet surprise you never saw comin’!

For instance: You pick the 6 to 9 foot size range, and you better be happy as a clam if you get yourself a sassy 6-footer. Don’t be settin’ your heart on an 9-foot superstar every time you cast that line!

So there you have it, darlin’ – keep your expectations in check, shoot for the smaller end of the range, and if you end up snaggin’ somethin’ bigger, well, ain’t that just a cherry on top of your huntin’ sundae? Get out there and reel ’em in, and remember, it’s all ’bout the adventure, not just the size of the gator. You got this! Yeehaw!

It’s hard to judge how big it is when you only see the head…

Well, darlin’, judgin’ size ain’t easy when you’re just eyeballin’ that head, I tell ya!

Now, listen up: We can’t promise you the exact size of that gator, ’cause when you’re talkin’ ’bout so little of it peekin’ above water, it’s like tryin’ to read a book by starlight. But don’t you worry none, ’cause your trusty guide’s got tricks up their sleeve.

Your guide’s gonna take a good long look from them eyes to the tip of that snout, measurin’ up the distance. And let me clue you in – the longer that distance stretches out, the bigger that alligator’s likely to be.

So there you have it, darlin’ – we might not have a magic crystal ball, but we’ve got a seasoned guide who’s got a knack for sizin’ things up. Get ready for a gator hunt that’s as mysterious as a summer lightning storm!

Sorry size queens…

Well, sugar, if you’re all about them inches, I gotta give it to ya straight – we might not be your perfect fit.

See, if you’re dead set on a gator that’s exactly the size you’re cravin’, we might not be the ride you’re lookin’ for. There’s folks out there who’ll measure and price gators down to the last inch, if you catch my drift.

But here’s the deal: if you’re up for some unpredictable excitement and a bit of gator-sized surprise, then you’re in the right neck of the woods. We’re all ’bout them size-ranges, keepin’ things wild and untamed, just like Mother Nature intended.

So, hun, if you’re ready to embrace the unexpected and leave them size queens behind, we’re here with open arms and a big ol’ gator adventure waitin’ for ya. Get out there, and remember, it ain’t just ’bout the size – it’s the whole dang experience that’ll leave you grinnin’ like a possum in a peach tree! Yeehaw!
