Since 1987, Jim has been a licensed Nuisance Alligator Trapper
for the Florida Fish and Game Conservation
Commission. In that time he has removed more than 2000
alligators from backyards, swimming pools, carports, canals,
bays, inlets and any other imaginable place a alligator can hide.
In 2003, the Game Comm. passed a new
rule that allows the public to purchase an agent's license, which
falls under the
license, ride with a trapper and participate in the capture of
gator. This allows the trappers to book hunts, no different than
booking a hunt out west. About 95% of the hunting will be done
at night when gators are most active. The most commonly used
method is the handheld harpoon, a
headlight, and a very quiet, stealthy approach.
