Great buck
 I was up there for the late hunt with a friend who drew
He passed on a bunch of bucks
We saw a couple of candidates but not the one he was after
and met a few guys who got theirs
Itís a great hunt and you definitely did it justice
Congrats

Great Buck, incredible how big those North end Bucks bodies are.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit if this fella was a B.C buck, there is about 7-10 different routes that converge in the area 7mm was concentrating in, a handful come down some routes out of the Pasayten and a couple come from direct north and will converge with the Pasayten routes. They will mill around and stage for awhile in the area until(and if, depending on weather) they form a larger group and head farther south, some will drop off here and there and winter, some will continue up to another 10-15 miles farther south. My brother and I keep looking at the pictures, 7mm,s buck looks very similar to some genetics that come out of Canada, we killed one back in the 80,s that was collared and had a transmitter on it(already told that story), summered about 20 miles into B.C and he spent his winters in a particular area in the Methow, we killed him that year while he was in route to his wintering area that was about another 8-10 miles down valley. Similar looks as bucks we kill close to the border(when we used to be able to hunt into November and actually hunt migrations), the same area an old cowboy I know took those fellas from a particular outdoor magazine to get pictures of bucks and write an article about "Border Jumpers", back in the 60,s I think :dunno:, it was about who did these deer really belong to, Washington or B.C, kind of a fun little article because these deer don't belong to anyone but Mother Nature IMHO. Once again 7mm, great buck, would be cool to know his history and his haunts, who knows where his summer stomping grounds were. Fantastic buck.

That is something my Dad and I discussed at length, wishing that we could know that old boy's history. Crossing paths with him at a moment in time on a gigantic landscape feels like such a small part of the story. If a guy could backtrack him and follow him around we could learn so much.
