14 foot 2 inch long alligator found dead
On May 18, 1969, three adult male and 3 adult female alligators were flown to Columbus by Southern Airlines for release at Bluff Lake on the Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge. It is likely that many of the alligators seen by today’s visitors are decedents from these original six alligators. It is also likely that the 14’2” adult male alligator found dead near the water control structures of Bluff Lake is one of the original three males released in 1969. Whether the case or not, refuge officials are sure this is the largest alligator ever documented on the refuge. Refuge Manager Steve Reagan said, “I am very impressed by the general size of many alligators at the Noxubee, and seeing an animal that measures more than 14 feet is a one in a life time experience. I could have, however, missed out on the smell.” Initial inspections of the carcass indicated the animal likely died of natural causes.

Now ill believe that's a 1,000 lb gator. Not the 6 footers Troy catches that are all 1,000 pounders

Hunted here in college. Saw some large gators in Bluff lake.

We used to sit off Goose point and watch big deer in the 'no hunting" areas. Spent lots of time in Noxumbee

re: Very large gator found in north MS
We have the same kind of deal up here in Wheeler reservoir. Gators were released here back in the 70's. They estimate we have 40-50 now. I've seen some smaller ones in the 8' range. But one day, fishing in my canoe, I saw a 2,000lb, tree-shaking BEAST. Actually, I just saw a HUGE gator head swimming across the slough ahead of me. I don't know how big it was, but it made the 8-footers look like babies.
