11-year-old bags 16-point buck on opening day

Drake Clements got a 16-point buck on the first day of the firearm deer season. It was the 11-year-old’s first buck.

Drake Clements of Elmwood, Nebraska, checked in one of the biggest deer at Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium on Saturday morning.

The 11-year-old’s first buck, which he killed in Cass County, had 16 points.

“He was excited,’’ said the aquarium’s Jacob Brown. “I’d say it was probably close to one of the biggest we got today.’’

Brown said numbers were up Saturday morning and the frigid temperatures were keeping deer on the move.

Aquarium director Tony Korth wasn’t on hand because of a death in his family.

The snow that snarled the commute for many on Friday should be a boon for hunters Saturday on the first day of the firearm deer season. Deer tend to move more in colder weather as well as hunters, increasing the chances they cross paths.
