Given the choices below what do you think would be the best knife for an 3 day gator hunting trip in the swamps of Georgia. Please give reasons why. I will have a SAK spirit tool as a backup.

Cold Steel 12" Spear Point Machete -1055 carbon steel

SOG Field Seal Pup Elite-AUS 8

Knives of Alaska Yukon Belt Knife- D2

Martindale Golok- High Carbon blade

Grohmann Boat Knife- High Carbon Stainless

I wouldn't recommend either one, I also wouldn't recommend going on a 3 day gator hunt in the swamps, or anywhere, in Georgia. It is highly illegal and frowned upon by the Powers that be.

I know the season is over with since the 5th of october. I am not going now the topic was just which one of the knives above would you take on that type of hunt. My focus was more on which one would be more appropriate do to the possibility of being exposed to moisture 3days straight, cutting foliage and chopping wood material for the area, plus cleaning game and if need be self defense. Just wanted to know what everyone thought given the choices I listed which would be more appropriate.

My choice would be an M7 Bayonet...

Attached to a Mossberg 590 shotgun.

Reason:

1. Shoot the bastard

How come they hunt them anyway? Is gators good eating?

I think the other choices would rust too easy since they are carbon steel.
