Manley Fuller, left, of Tallahassee, and Rick Kramer, a guide from West Palm Beach, load their first catch of the night — an 8½-foot alligator — into the back of Kramer's pickup several miles south of Clewiston on Friday. The two men took part in the first-ever nonmotorized-vehicle alligator hunt at a reservoir in Hendry County. Hunters stalked the alligators from the water's edge and in small boats and canoes using fishing rods and harpoons to snag their prey.
