Annual Alligator Harvest

Annual Alligator Harvest

You're invited to Jim Bel's Hackberry Hilton Hunting Club for the opening day of wild alligator harvest season. We'll meet in the McNeese Library Parking lot at 7:30 A.M. where you'll receive a map before caravanning in your own car to Hackberry. Jim Bel wants to share his love and respect for the marsh. You'll see first hand the benefits total marsh management offers the animals, aquatics and birds of different species.
This is a great oppurtunity for an unforgettable photo shoot. After watching the alligator harvest, Jim and Lana Bel invite us for lunch in an air-conditioned camp. Then we'll be on our way after an early lunch. Cool clothing, sunscreen, hat and mosquito repellant are needed. Recommended: an ice chest with drinks and a camera.  Prior registration by Aug 31 2015, Noon and a signed Hold Harmless form are required for participation in this unique oppurtunity to see nature and conservation up close.
