Jefferson County resident Scott Evans says, for him, alligator hunting is about the camaraderie with friends.
Having a few buddies along for the ride is a necessity, though, when faced with hunting and pulling in a massive and potentially dangerous creature.
"It's a team effort," Evans said, adding that unlike most hunting and fishing in Alabama, gator hunting can't really be done alone.
It took six men, including two Alabama conservation officers, to pull in and secure the 13-foot 6-inch gator, weighing approximately 900 pounds. Evans' group snagged the big gator almost immediately after starting their hunt Friday night, the opening day for gator hunting at Lake Eufaula.
