Nancy Sample and her husband Mike search for alligators on Nancy's first hunt.
Just minutes after spotting an alligator swimming nearby, Mike Sample hops out to pull his boat through thick weeds.
Nancy kisses her husband after he climbs back into the boat.
Day two of the gator hunt starts bright and early.
“It’s a good one! It’s a good one!” Mike yells, tugging an alligator above water.
Nancy takes her first shot at the 10-foot alligator, hoping for a quick kill.
Nancy severs an alligator's spine with a knife to make sure it's dead after shooting it three times.
An alligator sits on the Sample's boat among beach bags and sun hats.
Mike and Nancy have been married for almost two years, and hunting is already bringing them closer together. Among other things, they plan to make an alligator-skin thong bikini for a romantic vacation to Brazil from their catch.
Nancy and Mike raise their alligator to measure it. Nancy was the only woman on the hunt, and had one of the day's biggest catches.
