16 y/o girl reels in first catch--a 12 foot gator!

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A young girl has an unusual hobby for only being 16-years-old.

But apparently hunting alligator is one of her favorite things to do

Hali Lane likes hanging out with her friends and horseback riding.  And along with her father Chris and uncle John, you can add gator hunting to the list.

On board a boat, armed with a big light, harpoon, and a handgun, they were able to hook several lines into the beast to make the catch.

The catch: A 12-foot alligator.

They don't know how much it weighs, but they say it was definitely a prize.

Hunting season is still open in South Carolina. Folks there can hunt gator all the way up until the middle of October.

So she's got plenty of time to go catch her another one.
