Gator meat is very good and it's lean it's served here in the western end of the state at some of the seafood restaurants and you can order it on line.

gator meat is very good, but like everything else, not everyone likes it.

I have some old friends in Louisiana, if it walks,crawls, or flies they throw it in a pot cook it and eat it. I like good cajun food.

I've been going to Rough River Lake for quite a number of years and have never seen or heard of alligators there. Furthermore, Leitchfield is in Grayson County (a dry county)...wonder how it is that they're selling beer there.

I'm sorry if I offended you but when you said you hoped someone from Leitchfield here, I thought you meant you were in Leitchfield (which is in a dry county) when you saw the picture.

At any rate, Rough River is a beautiful place and we go there almost every weekend in the summer. I'm sure there have never been any alligators there.

Maybe it's a good way to scare some of the people off the lake, let's keep the story going!

Hey, lets do it together. And bring yer digital camera because I've got none. Also we've gotta first copy and print out buncha the gator pics:

http://images.townnews.com/thenewsenterprise.com/content/articles/2008/04/13/news/news01_thumb.jpg (broken link)

We'll need em for circulation at gas stations along the way, drop one at Al's too because somebody snatched the old one. I'll cover the fuel and campin expenses if you can put together supper'n fixins. Have fishing rods for the entire family, probly aint gonna be easy gettin our hands on a boat this weekend though. I been lookin to buy a rooftop canoe that fits on top of the car.

Anyhow folks, the fellow with the story at beer, bait'n tackle haint been around but i got the straight scoop. Army Corps of Engineers been called down to Rough River patroling with helicopter and hover-crafts and after massive deployment haint found alot of gator tracks. What they're sayin at Ft.Knox is there probly aint alot of giant gators in Rough River Lake.

KYGal, since y'all got Grayson connections - see if ye can git local definitive perspective on the gator situation. And next time I'm headin down to Bowling Green I'll ask around at Cave City and Glasgow too.
