Gator Update (Vacation Edition)

Think for a second of the ballsiest thing you’ve ever done. Now compare it to hunting a ten foot alligator through a Florida swamp at midnight with nothing but a harpoon. How’s your experience measure up? Yeah… we thought so.

Hampton & Hampton Guide Services will take you on the manliest trip of your life: hunting down one of nature’s toothiest killing machines (other than Julia Roberts). Having been featured in dozens of TV shows and magazine articles, and praised by the Florida Game Commission and Safari Club International, make no mistake: these guys know a thing or two about hunting gators.

You’ll be taken at night in an air boat out into the humid swamps of central Florida. As you shine your flashlight over the waters, you’ll see hundreds of reptilian eyes glowing in the dark all around the boat. Then, armed with a few harpoons and some tips from your guide, you’ll try to impale the Floridian equivalent of a dinosaur. And once you do, the fun has only just begun, ’cause the thing about alligators is: they don’t like being stabbed with harpoons.

Surely this was created with The Cap'n in mind.

I know, don't call you Shirley.

He's probably already made a reservation.

Today, seeing this about alligators being hunted with harpoons for entertainment, I hate people.

I was recently reading about people who hunt wild boar with dogs and dispatch the boars by hand with a knife or spear. That sounds more dangerous than hunting from the relative safety of a boat.

I don't want any part of either.
