    Alligator hunt and boots

    Couple years back I went to Texas and got a gator. Sent the leather to a boot maker and got some gator skin boots made. Finally got them back this weekend. Lower black portion is my alligator.

        That's awesome! I have been thinking about a gator hunt in the future. Did you keep the head?

          Yes I did and I paid skulls unlimited to clean it for me. It’s sitting in my daughters bedroom when I get home I’ll take a picture of it and post it.

          If you do go gator hunting and want boots made there is only one place to send it for boot quality leather. American Tanning & Leather out of Griffin, GA. Don’t be cheap and try to save a buck or you won’t be getting boots done. Lol

            That's too cool, I've always said it'd be sweet to have a pair of boots from something I'd taken! Did it really take years to get them back?

              Killed the alligator in April 2017. The boot maker received my tanned leather in December 2017. And I just picked them up two days ago

                This is one of my life hunting goals. Kill a gator, get boots made. Nice 👍

                    Nah. It was worth the wait. Some people are just impatient.

                    If anyone is serious about doing this some day I can give you more detailed info via PM.
