Massive 225-Pound Alligator Gar Taken by Bow [VIDEO]

How many arrows does it take to stop a monster alligator gar?

Watch these fishermen realize what they've gotten themselves into.

An alligator gar of this size doesn't come along every day, and this is a big one.


The alligator gar is found throughout much of the south and as far west as Texas and Oklahoma. They can live up to 50 years and weigh as much as 300 pounds. Although they are targeted by both commercial and sport fishermen, they have frequently been overfished and are now protected in much of their range.

If you're going to bowfish for such a tremendous beast, you'd better have help. It's a good thing they brought along the ladies because they're excellent marksmen.

Girls can bow fish too.
