Three Houston County men caught an 11 1/2-foot gator after trailing him for more than four hours.
Tony Wrye says it happened Sept. 6 in Mossy Lake near Perry. The three -- Tony, his brother Joey Wrye and buddy Tommy Sorrow -- are all from Houston County.
Wrye says they shot it once with a bow, once with a harpoon, stuck an arrow in it with a buoy attached and followed it around for 4 and a half hours, then hit it with an explosive "bang stick."
It's the second 11-foot-6 gator they've caught in Mossy Lake. The other was three years ago.
Tony Wrye sent us a photo of their latest gator, taken by his wife, Pam.
