What happens when you pair a special forces veteran with the world's best crossbows?
Meet Army Special Forces (retired) veteran Dan Hughes, a Team Valhalla member who spent the day hunting gators with Townsend & Sons Everglades Outfitters. Equipped with a couple of Ravin Crossbows, Dan and his crew built up an appetite and brought home enough alligator for a Florida-style feast.
Grab a seat in the swamp boat to get a clear view of their hunt and of how Ravin’s latest models perform:
A leader in innovation and advanced technology, Ravin’s R500 shoots arrows at 500 FPS with extreme accuracy and penetration power. You need a serious weapon like this if you want to pierce the thick hide of an alligator. The Ravin R29X, weighing in at 6.75 LBS, also proves its worthiness with a successful harvest. To get a gator, you need to puncture this prehistoric beast’s armor in a spot the size of a quarter—and the R29X has that kind of accuracy, even at distance.
Welcome to the apex of the hunt.
