Gator hunting season, by the numbers

Oct 21, 2010 1:29:00 PM - thestate.com
That massive, much-publicized alligator caught by a woman from Massachusetts early in South Carolina’s alligator season was the heaviest, but not the longest, snared this year.

South Carolina’s four-week alligator hunting season ended Oct. 9, and the paperwork that has to be filed by hunters is still trickling in to the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. But here are some preliminary numbers:

Alligators killed: 424 and counting, compared to a record 452 last year

Leading counties: Berkeley 92 gators killed, Georgetown 90, Colleton 72, Clarendon 41, Beaufort 37, Charleston 23

Number taken in Richland County: 1
