South Caroliina Gator
« on: October 04, 2016, 09:59:00 AM »
South Carolina Gator Hunt
Had the opportunity to fly down to SC recently and spend a week with fellow Trad Ganger and good buddy Benjy Epting. Benjy always reminds me when the annual gator draw is sneaking up on us or I’d probably forget it. This has been going on for four years and I finally drew a permit. To my delight I learned that another buddy Randy Burtis had also drawn a permit.
We had a ball chasing gators despite missing out on a bunch of sleep.   ;)   True to his upbringing Benjy and his wonderful wife poured out the Southern Hospitality for a couple Westerners.
Thanks again Benjy for being such a wonderful host!!

Very nice, Doug!  Congrats!

That is my favorite size for table fare! We had some awesome Gator patties! Done like salmon patties but with ground Gator!
