AH members, As some of you know, I am looking forward to a croc hunt in May. Conditions at the actual hunt will likely change any preconceived notions that I may have but I would like to strategize for likely contingencies. Answers to my previous post have helped a lot so far. Thank you! What I ask now is for your experience and knowledge of croc behavior. Any information is welcome. Please, also jump in if you have knowledge of the Australian species. I would have included this on the other thread but I wanted to limit the scope to behavior and habits this time around. Some questions that come to mind are: How do typical May conditions generally affect crocs in Limpopo? Will the heavy rains this year change anything? Does the cooler May temperature encourage broader basking hours? Does the cooler May temperature make them less active and eat less? Do crocs typically bask facing a particular direction? Towards the sun, away, or broadside? When a croc finds a comfy spot, does it stay there for a while? An hour or several hours? (This will influence the speed of my stalk) Does age and size influence behavior? What other considerations regularly come into play? I plan on making this a bow hunt unless a monster presents himself under conditions that my PH advises a rifle only. I am looking for a minimum size of 9 feet. Otherwise, I will return home croc-less. Either way, rifle and bow hunters chime in at will. It appears that more rifle hunters go for crocs so this forum seemed appropriate. I currently plan on a painfully slow stalk and my PH has informed me that I can go alone on the final approach. He has been a great help so far but I would like a range of info and opinions. Thanks in advance for what I'm sure will be valuable info!
