John Trammel was the deckhand for last week's hunt on Lake Eufala in Quitman County. It took a crew of five more than five hours to bring the 700-pound reptile in.
Snelson still can't believe it's Georgia’s biggest.
“We'll have it life-size mounted,” Snelson said. “I guess I'll have to build a house around it. It's going to be a monster laying on the living room floor for a while!"
There is an alligator hunting season in Georgia, running from mid-August through early October.
Hunters have to get a special permit, and the bag limit is one. Snelson figures he landed the one.
