Pastor Harvey Swenson, 96, Backus, is one of Minnesota's oldest deer hunters.
This season he proved age is no factor in deer-hunting success when he bagged this doe. "It's important not to waste a lot of shells," Swenson said. "One shot is all you need."
Swenson is a long-time resident of the area and is a former pastor at Riverview Tabernacle church. He founded and operated the Solid Rock Bible Camp on Lake Alexander, south of Pillager, for over 50 years.
