“Here we go, No. 2 of the day,” one man can be heard in the video, which was posted on Facebook.

Stipe and Couey own a navigation app called Pro Hunt. The app utilizes the GPS in a person’s iPhone or iPad to track hunters on a moving map, according to the product’s website.

Earlier this month, a 10-foot alligator strolled across the grounds of the Valencia Golf & Country Club in Naples, forcing golfers to let the reptile play through. The one that Stipe and Couey saw appeared to be longer.

In Leesburg, the hunters were hoping the gator was satisfied after snatching a pair of ducks.

“All right, you’re fed,” another man says. “Now get out of here.”
