Those crocs are getting smarter that's for sure!!! It seems the more we chase them, the harder they are to catch which is great for their survival in the long term. I'm sorry we didn't catch anything for you that night. That's just how it...More

One of the things we tell people who join our excursion, is that every trip is different. We're hunting wildlife, and no two hunting trips are the same. As you saw first hand, some nights we chase bigguns, other nights, just little guys. Some nights...More
