Pecan Island

Various dates from September - October 2023 available. Please contact support@huntbirddog.com for additional details.


Come on down to Louisiana and enjoy an action packed Cajun adventure in the swamp at Pecan Island! We provide the tags, you do the hunting! Test your marksmanship and strength as we fight to get thrashing 5 to 11 foot alligators on the boat. Each person will get to run 15 lines and harvest all gators on their lines. During their two-night stay, hunters will enjoy some of the best homemade Cajun cuisine and beverages that Louisiana has to offer.

Hunting Package Details


This bucket list gator hunt will be hosted on 110,000 acres of swamp around Pecan Island. Given an abundance of both alligators and tags, each hunter will be allowed to hunt 15 lines, and will leave with meat and the head from their largest gator. The package includes a 2-night stay at the gator camp, a guided hunt, cajun cuisine and beverages, photos, and gator meat. The hunt costs $3,500 per guest. Hunters are expected to tip a minimum of 10%. 


Guests should arrive the night before the hunt around 4:00pm and will enjoy drinks and appetizers, followed by authentic cajun cuisine. The following morning, each boat will ferry 2 to 3 hunters to various locations throughout the swamp. Firearms are not required as they will be provided by the guides. After the hunt, you'll be treated to Cajun food back at the camp. 

Each hunter will be allowed to take home one alligator head and 25 lbs of cleaned and vacuum sealed meat. Additional meat, skinning, tanning, or taxidermy will be a separate cost if desired. All taxidermy will go through Basin Taxidermy unless otherwise desired. Heads, hides, and other items can be shipped anywhere in the USA upon request.

Hunter Requirements

Unless otherwise arranged with the host, hunters are expected to provide the following:

  • Valid Louisiana Gator License. Cost is $150.
  • Boots or shoes which can get wet and dirty.
  • Cap or hat.
  • Sunscreen.
  • Cooler for gator meat.
