Why do you snag alligators before hunting them?

Many times a hunter will shoot at an alligator and believe they missed, however, most likely they wounded the alligator, and days later it will float up dead. Snagging not only ensures your success by preventing the alligator from swimming off, but it also is a humane way to hunt.
