Gators are likely to be quite active until it gets cold which may not happen until mid Jan.
I'm a lot more concerned with Cottonmouths than gators. Gators are easy to spot if you know what to look for. Gators bite anything that passes in front of their face but they almost never chase anything. Give them respect and distance and they aren't a problem. Cotton mouths are harder to see.
