Alligator hunting

Random drawings were held a few days ago by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for 33 alligator hunting permits.


Five of the 33 permits went to Faulkner County folks. Is our county suddenly a hotbed of alligator chasers, an Arkansas version of Swamp People?


More then 3,000 people applied for the permits, and the hunt will be on a September weekend.


Faulkner winners were Kerri McCabe of Greenbrier, Keith Bell of Conway, Daniel Del Campo Jr., of Vilonia, Linda Newman of Damascus and William Pruss of Conway.

The woman's view

Courtney, two of those five Faulkner County alligator permit winners are women. Don't you want to accompany one of them to get a females perspective story?

Are there really alligators .... close by? I am completely oblivious to this.
And if so, yes I want to follow them!

I've only heard of them
Unpublished

Being in Millwood lake in SW Arkansas.

One was found in Lake Hamilton last year, but it was stolen from the Alligator Farm in Hot Springs and placed in the lake.

I'm thinking the closest they would get to Conway is Tucker Creek ;)

I think I'm glad they aren't

I think I'm glad they aren't here.
I know there was an octopus found in Lake Conway. (It was Lake Conway then)
That was a great photo. I'm going to have to try to locate that.

Lake Conway

To most of us, it will ALWAYS be Lake Conway, Courtney. Just glad there are no alligators there (or are there?).

How many on here remember the Lake Conway Monster of the early 1950's? It was quite a story.
