GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. -- 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."

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