11-year-old kills Sumter County buck

On Nov. 12, 2023 Kenleigh Barnette, 11-years-old from Sumter, SC killed a 9-point buck. Kenleigh and her Dad, Jordan were sitting in the tree stand. The buck came out chasing a doe. The deer were in and out of the woods.

Jordan blew the grunt call to make him stop and he did at about 150 yards and Kenleigh dropped him right there on the spot! What an amazing experience for a father and daughter.
