Imagine waking up at the ass crack of dawn to get out to the woods, hoping you bag the biggest buck of your life.
After a couple hours, you can’t find anything within range, but then you start to feel the damn deer stand begin to shake, and you see something ginormous walking your direction off in the distance…
And sure enough, it’s the biggest alligator you’ve ever seen before in your life.
That’s exactly what happened to this bowhunter from Macon, Georgia.
“It was just another afternoon in the climbing stand for a bowhunter in Macon County, Georgia.
Then he hears something coming, and with anticipation he tightens his grip on his bow… oh, but it was no deer. Like a scene from Jurassic Park a huge alligator appears, lumbering through the pines before laying down in a corn pile.
He was hunting in planted pines more than 1,500 yards, almost a mile, from a river and retention pond where a 13-foot alligator is known to reside.
Before dark, the alligator lumbered away, but not back toward the river, instead it went toward the hunter’s truck. Made for a hair-raising, careful walk out of the woods in the dark.”
If I was him, I would’ve been staying put for a little while.
