Cory Klocek, a firefighter at Baldwin Fire Department in Minnesota, was hunting during the start of firearm hunting season this weekend when he ended up harvesting an alligator.

“Well, this was a first for me. This morning I harvested a beautiful 10 point buck,” Cory wrote on Facebook. Then he added, “As I’m walking around a pond, tracking my deer, I look down to see a 3 foot alligator 10 feet in front of me.”

Cory was hunting in East Bethel. After shooting the 10-pointer, he was tracking its blood trail and spotted the little gator laying on the edge of a pond. Surprised and not sure what to do, Cory called the game warden to report what he had seen.

Corey said, “After contacting the game warden, I was informed I could shoot it. No clue how it got there, or why. I’m guessing someone had it as a pet and released it when it got too big.”

The hunter says he’s lost for words but plans to take the deer and gator to a professional to get a “fun” taxidermy piece created that has them mounted together.

“Only in 2020 can you go out to sit for deer gun season opener in Minnesota and shoot an alligator,” he shared.
