Arkansas Alligator Hunting

Arkansas Alligator Season 2010This big guy was just sent over to me and I thought all of you would like to take a look at one of the finest Arkansas alligator specimens you’ll ever lay eyes on.

At 13 feet, 1 ¼ inches and 680 lbs., this behemoth was caught on private land near Arkansas Post in Arkansas County on 09/19/10.

View the full size picture over in the Arkansas Hunting Photo Gallery. Have a gator hunting story of your own? We’d love to hear about it in the forum.

Arkansas gator hunting has taken off in recent years. This year, there will be 47 permits issued for the fall 2010 alligator season. Thirty-six of these permits will be available through the public drawing process.

    Hey folks, an old duck hunting buddy sent this article to me. My how things are changing. I remember hunting Dewitt, Almyra, and Stuttgart from about ’94 through ’02 with Goose Busters and man we hammered ‘em. I thought I was the baddest creature at the top of the food chain, but this thing is scary huge. We all know that gators in Arkansas is not a natural thing, so why only a set number of permits? The more these things hang around the more comfortable they will become with the world’s greatest waterfowl spot. I say cut ‘em all and if you need a country boy who has followed the money to the big city to lend a hand, just send me an email and I’ll round up a gator posse. Late. -Whit
