Hunters bag 10-foot, 3-inch Santee gator


Another big Santee gator goes down to Carolina Crazy Outdoors

One day after having his hand bitten by a harvested gator, Buck Koon of Carolina Crazy Outdoors was back at it, chasing another big lizard at Santee. With another group of clients in the boat, they found a 10+ footer and managed to get it hooked. But before they could finish it off, the gator got free.

With so much time invested in that gator, and only a few hours of daylight left, the tag-holder decided to go after another gator. But as they prepared to move, their initial target resurfaced. And this time, they caught the gator for good.

Watch the action in the video above. And check out more of Koon’s videos on his YouTube channel.
