12-year Old Bags Buck in Velvet

12-year old Garrett Capell of Red Hill killed his first buck over the Labor Day weekend. The young man shot a 5-point, 130-lb buck in full velvet while hunting with his dad on their land in Lee County.

There are many old hunters who have killed big numbers of deer, but never taken one in full velvet. Garrett has started the hunting season off right by doing just that. Next up for Garrett--an 8-point buck with a 16-inch spread!

  1. Congrats Garrett. Not many hunters will harvest a buck in velvet this year!
