Adams Fruit Market In Lafourche Parish Louisiana

Are you a Louisiana resident who would like to hunt alligators but lacks access to private lands where the animals flourish?

Do you have $5 and feel lucky?

325 lucky alligator tag lottery winners will set out across nearly 40 public lands this Fall to take down an estimated 850 magnificent (and delicious) gators.

Rules:

You must be a Louisiana resident.

You must be at least 16 years of age.

You must purchase a resident alligator hunting license ($25)

You must pay a set fee per alligator tag issued ($40 per tag)

The harvest of wild and domestic alligators in our great state brings in $57 million annually. Think about what an excellent resource these creatures are for Louisiana.

Remember, when you’re on the hunt, that alligators can run up to 35 mph. A wily, mature gator could easily overtake Usain Bolt, the fastest human on earth. Bolt can barely run 27 mph for a short burst. I’d pay to see Bolt vs a Louisiana gator in a Wide World of Sports-style footrace with Jim McKay on commentary.
