Perhaps the most difficult part about trapping alligators is that they don’t want to be trapped, a notion completely foreign to humans who habitually walk into Nerf-gun ambushes. Lure the scaly beast into submission with today’s Groupon: for $20, you can ride along with an alligator trapper (a $45 value) from Adrenaline Alligator Adventures in St. Augustine.
Adrenaline Alligator Adventures transforms the wildest dreams of wrestling with reptiles into exhilarating realities as guests ride along on a hunt with licensed gator trapper Adam Burch to get a close-up view of the exciting action. In a truck stocked with rods and reels tough enough to handle the whining complaints of overgrown lizards, novice gator chasers get to cruise with Adam as he drives through scenic St. John’s County, scouts out the ever-changing permit sites, and finally locates the beast du jour, which will always be more than four feet long. Once the gator is successfully stalked and snagged on a treble hook, hunter apprentices can observe the fight as the guide reels in his catch and tapes its mouth shut to stop it from singing show tunes.
After the struggle is over, guests can attempt to out-smile the gator in a friendly photo-op that will grace picture frames and scrapbooks for generations. Although there is a certain amount of daring and danger to be found in other hobbies such as stamp collecting, with today’s deal you can explore a whole new planet of hazardous pastimes by riding along with a man whose business is dragging danger from rivers and swamps.
