Just three days into the start of Mississippi's alligator hunting season, state Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks officials say the state record for heaviest alligator has been broken -- twice.
MSNewsNow.com reports that a group of hunters from Madison held the weight record for about an hour after taking in a 723.5-pound gator, beating the state record for heaviest male by 26 pounds.
Beth Trammell, a first-time hunter, and her six-person crew spent two hours trying to wrestle the 13-foot 5.5-inch alligator into their boat after receiving help from two other hunters, the Hattiesburg American reported.
The record set by Trammell and her team was broken about an hour later, when Dustin Bockman of Vicksburg took in a 727-pound alligator, according to Mississippi's alligator program coordinator, Ricky Flynt.
Bockman and his two partners bagged the 13-foot 4.5-inch gator after getting close enough to shoot the animal with a crossbow on the Mississippi River, according to the Hattiesburg American.
