Garrard was joined by his father, Wayne Garrard, along with Nathan Howell and Chuck Darby of Grenada. The foursome began their quest at around 8 p.m.

They hooked the gator at 9:05 p.m. and battled the beast until 10:15 p.m.

Using 00 treble hooks, at one point they had five hooks in the huge monster. The gator went deep into the river and got hung on some logs on the bottom. During this process one pole was broken.

Their capture weighed in at 438 lbs. and measures 11 feet and 8 inches.

Garrard said the adventure has now made his father a huge gator hunting fan.

Vicksburg resident James Lynn Sr. shared on social media that his capture weighed in at 528 lbs. and measures 11 feet and 6 inches.

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks has made procedural changes to waterfowl draw hunts on wildlife management areas for the 2020-21 hunting season. Due to ongoing health concerns from COVID-19, drawing procedures have been altered to limit close interactions between individuals who are visiting or working on these areas. New procedures for the upcoming hunting season are outlined below:

  • All waterfowl draw hunt applications for the season (up to 5 draw periods per WMA) will be open concurrently from Oct. 1 to Oct. 15 and all drawings will be completed by Nov. 1.
  • Hunting units will be assigned when draw winners are notified.
  • Drawn hunters will have 48 hours to confirm their reservation online before it goes back into a second refill drawing.
  • Applicants who are not initially drawn will be entered into the refill drawing for a chance to fill any hunting positions that were not confirmed.
  • Drawn hunters and their guests must sign in by 5 a.m. the morning of their hunt and will proceed to their hunting unit.
  • Howard Miller, Mahannah and Muscadine Farms WMAs will have stand-by opportunity for non-drawn hunters to show up the morning of a hunt for a chance to fill any vacant hunting units.

Applications for WMA draw hunts can be found online. Hunters are reminded that not all WMAs with waterfowl hunting opportunity require a draw permit to hunt, and specific regulations for each WMA should be reviewed before hunting.
