The alligator weighed in at a whopping 700 pounds, taking them three days catch it. They did admit it took all five of them to get the gator.
Last year, the men caught two gators for the first time. One was a little more than 6 feet and the other a little more than 11 feet.
The five friends hope to go gator hunting once again before the season ends in October. They've already cut it up and plan to eat it.
After word of their catch received attention, FOX Carolina was contacted by some hunters from Ninety-Six who said they recently caught a 12'10", 1,000 pound gator while hunting out of Stump Hole Landing near Elloree. See photos of their catch here.
