I am thinking about making a career change when we move to Charleston. I'm wondering if there are any on the job training opportunities that could lead to a full time career in gator hunting. Thanks in advance.

There are a few job vacancies at one of the local snake wrangler companies

I would suggest going to Colorado Gators first to learn how to handle the gators. You never know if someone will fall out of the boat and you have to wrestle the gator to save the person. This is from Colorado Gator's website:

This is the only class in the world where you can get hands-on experience with a 9-foot alligator. You'll learn how to handle a small alligator and then gradually work up to a larger size gator, all the way up to the 9-footers!

So, once I get through school and get some gators to sell, is there anyone y'all would recommend who would give me a good price on them? I'm thinking of selling them to the people that make handbags and shoes/boots.
