A near-record-size mule deer was the last deer to go through the Winthrop check station on Oct. 21, the final weekend of the general deer season in the Methow area. ”The last deer we checked for the season was a very large 9x10 point mule deer with a 33-plus-inch antler width,” said state Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist Scott Fitkin. “This is likely the largest set of antlers seen at the check station in at least the last 17 years. The lucky hunter harvested the estimated 4 1/2 year-old animal in the Tripod Burn area, which appears to be producing excellent summer deer forage six years after (a) fire.”
