WHNT News 19 News Director and Station Manager Denise Vickers was lucky to pull one of 260 tags for Alabama’s annual alligator hunt — and it paid off!
The season began at 8 p.m. Thursday, and the hunt is a total of six days over two weekends. Hunters can work the waters in four designated regions from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. each night.
Well, she’s not a woman to waste any time — she got a gator on the first night!
“Well, I got a gator. But, any dreams of crushing the world record are just that… Dreams! My gator is 7′, 1″… And wait for it…. 84 pounds.”
Denise said she had a blast. She got the third gator of the night, and got to bed at 5 a.m.
We can’t wait to hear the story behind it, Denise! Congratulations.
