The final deer hunt of last season for a father and son at the Webber Farm in DeKalb County produced a rare trophy when 9-year-old Eli Walton killed an 8-point buck that had two upper canine teeth.
“We had been hunting four or five hours, and we were fixing to leave,” Eli said. “I thought I saw something against the edge line of the woods. My dad looked through binoculars, and I propped the scope across the tailgate.”
Eli’s dad Clinton said the distance was 252 yards.
