Two hunting parties in Mississippi both bagged alligators weighing more than 700 pounds! I think this is the reason why I never want to visit Mississippi.
Only 3 days into alligator hunting season and Dustin Brockman of Vicksburg and his hunting party nabbed a record-breaking 13-foot, 727-pound gator on Saturday. This catch broke the previous record and only an hour before, another party caught a 723-pounder!
Beth Trammel, the one who caught the 723-pounder said, "We had to flag down another boat down to help out it was so big," she said.
Brockman, the one who caught the 727-pounder said it took his team a total of about 4 and a half hours to bring the beast to shore after first spotting it.
"he broke all the lines we could put in him," Brockman told MSNewsNow.com. "Finally put a snare on him and got him up high enough to put a shot on him."
