Want to hunt some gator?
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is hosting the state’s regulated alligator hunting season to include more dates and hunt locations.
Forty-six hunters participated in the 2006 hunt. The 40 harvested alligators from that hunt ranged in size and weight from 7’7”to 12’4” in length and from 77 to 461 pounds at weigh-in. Hunters traveled from all over the state to participate.
Hunters will be randomly chosen by computer to receive one Alligator Possession Tag.
Applications will be accepted online at www.outdooralabama.com. The cost is $6 to apply and individuals may register multiple times. Only Alabama residents age 16 years or older may apply for an Alligator Possession Tag. Permits are non-transferable. Selected hunters and their assistants are required to have in their possession a valid 2007-08 hunting license.
Each selected hunter is required to complete the Alligator Training Course provided by Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division personnel. Each person receiving an Alligator Possession Tag will be allowed to harvest one alligator six feet in length or longer. Hunting hours will be from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. each day. All Alabama hunting and boating regulations must be followed.
