Wes Libbey can still remember the first buck he shot at. A big 12-pointer, he recalled.

"I pulled up the trusty .38-55," Libbey said. "Thirty-five yards. Broadside."


He missed the buck cleanly, and the Grand Rapids hunter still thinks about it 84 years later.

At 100, Libbey is still hunting deer. He plans to be out there Saturday morning when Minnesota's firearms deer season opens.
