New State Record Alligator Bagged

PORT GIBSON, Miss.–A new state record alligator was bagged over the weekend in Mississippi during the short season.

The big 13 foot 4 inch monster was killed on the Mississippi near Port Gibson according to the Clarion Ledger by Dustin Bockman and two other men after initially shooting the beast with a crossbow.

The encounter lasted a whole 12 hours because the 727 lbs. gator was so heavy.

Apparently another 723 lbs. gator was killed over the weekend also and held the Mississippi for a few hours before being bested by Bockman’s gator.

This year’s season in the state ends on September 9.
