2014 Hunting Photo Gallery

 

KBRB is again running a photo gallery from the 2014 hunting season. Email high resolution JPEG photos to kbrb@sscg.net and include the hunter's name, the date the animal was harvested, the county where the hunt occurred and any other information (number of antler points/B&C score etc.)

 

Lance Philben used his bow to take this 5x5 whitetail buck in Keya Paha County three days prior to the opening of the firearm season.

 

Todd Kicken hit the daily double during the 2014 season, harvesting these two massive bucks in the Niobrara River Valley.

 

Colton Troxel scored a 5x6 whitetail buck during the firearm season.

 

Cole Sundquist scored this 5x5 mule buck on the second Saturday of the firearm season, Nov. 22, in Frontier County.

 

Trey Thornburg bagged a big 5x5 whitetail buck on the opening morning of the firearm deer season in eastern Holt County.

 

Moriah Beel's first buck was a 5x6 whitetail taken in Brown County on the family ranch.

 

Jayden Philben of Ainsworth used his bow on the opening day of the season Sept. 1 to harvest this massive buck still in velvet in southern Brown County.

 

It was another extremely successful year for the bow-hunting Welch clan. Zach Welch scored this buck with his bow in Keya Paha County.

 

Harlan Welch took this unique whitetail buck with his bow in Keya Paha County during the early stages of the bow season.

 

Madison Welch continued the family tradition, scoring her first buck with a bow in Keya Paha County.

 

Harlan Welch completed his hunting season with his second buck, a mature whitetail in Keya Paha County.

 

Three generations of Welches admire this battle-tested buck with two broken points, taken by Zach Welch (center) with his bow in Keya Paha County on the first day of the firearm season Saturday. Also pictured are Zach's father Harlin Welch Jr. (left) and grandfather Harlin Welch Sr.

 

(From left) Quincy Ash, Tyler Cress and Jayden Swett each harvested excellent mule bucks during the opening weekend of the firearm deer season. Ash took her mule buck on Saturday, while Cress and Swett closed out their hunts on Sunday.

 

Ty Conroy braved the snowstorm on the opening morning of deer season to bag this 4x4 buck in Boyd County.

 

Jake Gambill found this unique, pie-bald whitetail buck opening Sunday in Brown County. Notice the unusual pure white coloration on the buck's legs.

 

An unusual species for Brown County, Eric Sorensen of Ainsworth turned into a "Swamp Person," using only an 8-inch buck knife to take this 8-foot-3 alligator Nov. 14 near LaBella, Fla.

 

Logan Parde (left) and his grandfather Bob Micheel found this bull elk in the crosshairs Nov. 4 during the family's annual hunt in Colorado.

 

George Murdock (left) and John Halberslaben (right) both scored bull elk Nov. 3 during a hunting trip to Colorado.

 

The annual trip into Colorado again ended in success for the Lanka family, as Greg harvested this bull Oct. 13 in the mountains during the 2014 season.

 

Zach Lanka also scored a mature bull on the same day as his dad, Oct. 13, during the Colorado elk season.

 

Cody Goochey also had success during the 2014 Colorado elk season, harvesting this 6x6 bull Oct. 24.

* Bulldogs come up 1 bucket shy in overtime classic, finish as Class C-2 runners-up

(Posted 5 p.m. March 15)

Senior Matt McLeod's running shot at the buzzer in overtime banked away Saturday, and the Ainsworth Bulldog boys basketball team ended its season one basket shy of a state championship, losing 71-69 to Fremont Bergan.
In a classic state finals contest, the Bulldogs and Knights traded the lead back and forth while playing for the third straight day in their third different venue.
The Pinnacle Bank Arena crowd was treated to an instant classic between the Bulldogs and Knights. Ainsworth grabbed a six-point lead in the first half behind a monster performance from McLeod, but the Knights fought back with an end-of-the-half run to take a 39-37 lead into the break.
Fremont Bergan stretched that lead to as large as 12 in the second half, only to see the Bulldogs make a furious rally. With 12 seconds remaining in regulation and Ainsworth down by three, sophomore Brady Delimont came off a screen from junior Hunter Martin and buried a 3-pointer from the top of the key to tie the game. McLeod, playing with four fouls for much of the fourth quarter, blocked a Knight shot before the buzzer, sending the two teams to overtime.
With both teams running out of gas playing in their third game in three days, neither team gained more than a one-bucket advantage in overtime. Tied at 69-69 with the clock running out, the Knights hit a shot with 5 seconds to play.
The Bulldogs called their final timeout and set up a play for McLeod, who scored a game-high 31 points. Catching an inbounds pass, McLeod raced past the half-court line and got to 17-feet before having to launch a shot at the buzzer. The shot hit the backboard and caromed away, giving the Knights the Class C-2 title.
McLeod added a team-best 10 rebounds and five blocks to his 31 points to lead Ainsworth in his final game in a Bulldog uniform. McLeod, Delimont, Martin and senior Tanner Fuelberth played all 36 minutes in the overtime game. Delimont ended his sophomore season with a 16-point effort and a team-best four assists.
Playing in his final game, Fuelberth finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, making 3 of 7 shots behind the 3-point line. McLeod went 4-for-6 beyond the arc, and the Bulldogs hit eight 3-pointers in the game to extend their Nebraska all-class record for 3-pointers in a season to 289. Ainsworth finished 13 triples ahead of the previous record-holder, Bellevue West in 2006.
Jonah Madsen led Fremont Bergan with 18 points, all of which came behind the 3-point line. Madsen went 6-for-10 from long range, and the Knights finished 9-for-19 as a team behind the 3-point line. A day after hitting 16 of 33 from beyond the arc, the Bulldogs finished 8-for-26 from 3-point range.
Adam Dykman added 17 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out in overtime. Nathan Griffen finished with 16 points, and Colton Brdicko added 12 points in the overtime win.
There were 15 ties and six lead changes in the game. The Bulldogs ended the season with a 25-3 record, and the Knights finished 24-3 as the state champions.
