During the first weekend of Mississippi’s alligator season a hunting party from Madison held the weight record for an alligator taken in the state. But the record only lasted about an hour.
Beth Trammell took a 13-foot, 5.5-inch long, 723.5-pound alligator early Sunday in Issaquenna County in the Yazoo Diversion Canal. It broke the previous weight record of 697.5 pounds.
However, Ricky Flynt from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks tells WLBT TV that one hour after he certified Trammell’s record, he certified another record-breaking gator.
Dustin Bockman, a UPS driver from Vicksburg, took the 727-pound alligator in the Mississippi River in Claiborne County. It was 13-feet, 4.5-inches long.
