Duck hunting in alligator territory can get quite sketchy.

This hunter found himself quickly in danger’s way.

Witness the gator stalk on this duck hunter that could have been fatal.

Hunting ducks in Florida might put you in the fight of your life against a real life dinosaur.

In a video shared by YouTuber Swamp N Stomp we witness a hunter who has gotten the attention of a hungry alligator. The hunter first loses a downed duck to the hungry beast. Not satisfied by the small meal it follows the hunter as he tries to get back to his boat. When the range is too close for comfort a shotgun blast right in front of the reptile’s snout puts it in pause mode.

Both the hunter and the alligator survived this close call of man and beast. Be careful in the wilds you just never know what might be hunting you.
