Georgia State Record Alligator

In September, Georgia hunter Jim Overman, age 43, harvested a new state record alligator at Lake Seminole.

According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division, the 13-foot, 10 ¾-inch gator beats the former record by 1 ¾ inches.

After extensive restoration efforts, American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) now flourish over most of their historic range. Georgia's alligator population is managed through a regulated hunting season.
