Alligator Hunting Details & Pricing
Since 1995 we have been hosting wild alligator hunting at Bourbe Lake (way before a certain reality show made the sport famous).
During weekends in September (only) we hunt wild alligators at Bourbe Lake with tags awarded to us by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries. Arrive on a Friday afternoon as we set out to bait traps. First thing Saturday morning we are off to check the catch of the night. Spend Saturady afternoon fishing in the lake, shooting skeet or relaxing with friends under a canopy of hard woods. After a night of gourmet dinner, good company and perhaps a spirited football game on the flat screen, we are off once again Sunday morning to hunt more alligators.
A three day, two night hunting package for up to four hunters and four gators at the Bourbe Lake Hunting Club cost $12,000. The package includes a Friday afternoon arrival until a Sunday noon departure and the harvesting of at least four gators. The package includes tags, hunting licenses (in-state or out-of-state), necessary firearms, ammunition, meals, beverages and private on-site lodging during the hunt. Tanning and taxidermy coordination services are also available, however, the cost of such services are the responsibility of the each hunter. (Tanning or taxidermy can take up to one year to complete.) Additional alligators may be harvested for $3,000 each. Additional non-hunters may join your group for $750 each.
Bookings are made on a first-come, first-serve basis. A 50%, non-refundable deposit is required to confirm your reservation. The balance will be due at least ten days before the date of the hunt. Personal checks are accepted for your deposit only, money orders will be required for the balance. (We do not accept credit cards.) All hunts are limited to a maximum of six hunters to ensure a quality hunt as well as a safe hunt. The hunt is not guaranteed, as this is a wild alligator hunt.
It is important to know, that when you book a hunt with the Bourbe Lake Hunting Club; you and your group will be the only individuals on the hunt (aside from our staff). This is a completely private hunt. We do not hunt alligators unless we have a "booked" hunt. You are not coming "along for the ride". Our hunts are catered to you and for you to enjoy and remember for a lifetime.
