ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An woman is showing off quite a big catch she made in the Flint River.

Debra Sloan and her guide David Law made a big catch Sunday night.

She came home with an 8 foot 5 inch gator shot wit a bow and arrow.

"It's a thrill when you grab that string and you start pulling and he's pulling the boat. He's pulling the boat you know then he's got a little size."

This is Sloan's second time participating in the gator season. She said she came into this season with a goal in mind.

"I just use the cross bow and put this arrow in him and I just sit back and watch any way I can, she said."

Both Sloan and Law were a little nervous that they wouldn't make out this season. 

"[I'm] very weary right now. Very scary- not coming up long enough for you to get a good shot."

But now with the help of Lee Processing she now has a prize she can eat.

"[I'm] not going to shoot anything I am not going to eat. 

She also plans to mount the head of the creature so she can brag about it.
