Georgia’s Largest Gators Thru 2012

It’s gator season in Georgia!  If you were one of the lucky 850 to be selected to go alligator hunting this season, check out some of the monster gators that have been harvested since alligator hunting began in 2001. We had one alligator harvested in 2012 make its way into the top five. Who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to bag a top five gator this year!
