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.
