14+ Foot Eufaula Beast Highlights Gator Season

Brad Gill | September 27, 2019

Gator season won’t officially close until Oct. 7, but this season already has been highlighted by what is certainly going to be a new state record. A 14-foot, 1.75-inch gator was killed on Lake Eufaula by tag holder Derrick Snelson, who hired Lethal Guide Service. 

That gator is pictured just below, and a full feature of that great hunt story is at

Below is just a sampling of the gators GON has received. If you’ve drawn a tag and killed a gator, we’d enjoy seeing it. Drop us an email at [email protected].
