With Dex a little under the weather, Rick is joined by "Big Country" Will Rozier and Jaryd Hurst. It's been a while since Will and Jaryd have been on, so the boys catch up on how turkey season went this past spring, and spend a while talking about one of Florida's longest hunting traditions, Gator Hunting.
Each summer, a select number of tags are allotted for alligator hunting across the state of Florida. For several weeks every year, hunters spend long days and nights searching for the biggest gators around, hoping for a chance to fill their tags with trophies. It's not as easy as Troy and Liz make it look on TV, so filling those tags is certainly not a given. Jaryd and Will talk us through their methods of finding and taking gators, as they both filled tags recently with some solid bull gators. Will also lives up to the "Big Country" moniker, telling us all about doing a cannonball out of the boat, on to a 10 foot dinosaur! This is a longer epidsode, but with tons of good info and great stories about a long standing rite of passage.
