A Houston man caught a 750 pound alligator during his first alligator hunting trip.

Austin Kimbrough said he was hunting at the Guadalupe Wildlife Management Area near Tivoli, about 32 miles outside of Victoria when he caught the 13 foot alligator.

According to Kimbrough he used a giant hook to catch the gator and he says it took four people to put the gator into his 14 foot boat.
