Default The gator is done and looks great!

This past weekend was the first time I was able to view the gator that I took a stranger to get. He is no longer a stranger but a friend for life now. I can say as long as I have messed with gators Alcovy taxidermy done a heck of a job making this gator look just like he did the night we took him from lake Eufaula. It will be on display at the buckarama in Atlanta and in Perry later on this year. So stop by and see a true monster of a gator!

Sweet Gator! I couldn't afford a full body mount on mine or I would have done the same. My first gator was this year on the savannah river (zone 9) was 11'-4". Getting the skull done though.

Those measurements were taken by the taxidermist and by local dnr officers at his shop and the weight was certified using D.O.T scales so as far as the current state record it beat it by 1/2 inch and by close to 200lbs.

It is the largest taken in this state I guided the hunt but I may draw a tag next year for myself. I have a bigger one in mind when I draw a tag for myself.

I saw one on mad-made island(Seminole) last Monday that might have been that large. I was shocked to see one that large up there. I don't recall seeing him last year.

Hey Redneck, Momma ain't gonna be happy with that thing in the den!!!!!

As far as I'm concerned yours was, a great one also dep6 everyone gets lucky once and a while and who knows we all will try to get one bigger that is what makes us do it each year so maybe some lucky person will get the chance for me to guide them to a good one also:-)

If anyone is looking for a guide, redneck1 is the way to go. He had me on gators from the moment I stepped on board. Brought home a 9'4" from Seminole.

He is one of the very best! Is taking my son and I this September to Eufaula. He now has cameras to video the hunt so the memories we make can be shared for a life time.

Happy July 4th. Thanks to all who have served and those familes who supported the troops.

As most may say that have hunted with me it will be a long night I try to get as big a gator as the tag holder wants. A trophy is different in everyone's eyes all I try to do is give as much hands on experience with a alligator as I feel is safe and no harm to the alligator. Except for the dispatching of the gator it will be a exciting hunt you won't forget.
