Record gator caught in southwest Arkansas

Another big gator taken in Arkansas. This one just a little bit bigger than our previous alligator in Arkansas. This big gator was taken south of Lake Millwood.

LITTLE ROCK, AR – A Prescott man killed a 13’3”, 1,380 pound alligator in Hempstead County last Friday.

Mike Cottingham says he bagged the gator in the lost lakes area below the dam at Lake Millwood. Arkansas Game and Fish tells Cottingham his catch is a state record.

Cottingham says the gator was so large that they couldn’t get it into his boat. When they got back to the dock it took 5 people to get it out of the water.

Cottingham plans to mount the head and make boots with the rest of the animal.
