Our year-round gator hunts are done on of private land throughout the south Florida region. Gator Raiderz has multiple types of properties from which to choose. Some areas are accessible by foot and buggy, while some are accessible only by airboat.

Depending on the situation and terrain, we use multiple methods of harvesting the gators. You may choose throwing a snatch hook, using a crossbow, pistol or harpoon.

Hunts can take place at day or night depending on weather or time of year.  We conduct hunts from both land and airboat. Give us a call today for an exciting adventure you’ll never forget. And check out our Public Land hunts, which are just as thrilling.

Hunt prices start at $600.00

If you want to take it up a notch, do a combo hunt – and take a hog right after your gator!

We specialize in hunting Florida’s beautiful lakes and rivers for huge alligators and can provide you with an awesome experience you’ll never forget.

We offer fully guided hunts that include all the different types of gear you may want to use from a simple re-curve bow to a laser-sighted cross bow. Depending on the lake, we do our hunts off an airboat or bay boat and can accommodate one to four persons. We have a 100% success rate for the past 10 plus years on 1-night hunts! However, we highly recommend 2 nights to allow you more time to hold out for your trophy of a lifetime.  We can also provide you with the processing and taxidermy needs for your gator.
