ROSE CITY, Minn. -- Perched on a deer stand in central Minnesota, Lois Rosenquist shot and killed an 8-point buck on opening day of deer hunting season.

The 83-year-old grandmother has been hunting for 66 years. She shot the deer on her family's homestead near Rose City with her 20-gauge shotgun.

The Rosenquist family has been hunting those same woods since they emigrated from Sweden over 100 years ago.

Rose City is about 21 miles northeast of Alexandria.
