We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat - Part Deux

Quote:
HOUSTON – An 18-year-old Fort Bend County high school senior has become the record holder for the heaviest alligator ever caught in Texas.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department officials have certified an 800-pound gator bagged last week by Braxton Bielski.

He was hunting with his dad and a friend, both Houston police officers, after they won a Parks and Wildlife drawing for a 5-day permit to hunt in the Daughtrey Wildlife Management Area in South Texas, about 90 miles south of San Antonio.

Wildlife officials say the 14-foot-3-inch gator could be 30 to 50 years old. It was hooked on a line with raw chicken as bait, then shot. They had to pull the alligator alongside their flat-bottom boat across the lake to a beach area to lift it into their boat.
Need some boots?
Story with pic of the raw materials here.

Wonder if it is the same one that was photographed with a deer in its mouth?
