The deadline for getting a tag to hunt alligators is coming up in Alabama.
The state has been holding regulated hunt for alligators for eight years, and hunters have until July 8 to get a tag for this year. The cost is $22.
The state wildlife agency will issue 240 tags in three zones, and everyone receiving a tag can kill one alligator.
The alligator hunting areas cover much of the southern half of the state, where the reptiles are most common.
