First Archery Coues Deer

January 14, 2014 by Sterner11 in Archery Gallery with 0 Comments

First Archery Coues Deer  I have taken several 100 class Coues Deer with my rifles but had yet been able to take advantage of an opportunity with my bow.  I have to say that I have had a couple of opportunities, but did not realize I had to aim at the ground to hit one.  LOL

This story starts with me chomping at the bit to get off work as it was 28 Aug 2013 and it was an overcast cool day (75) for Southestern AZ in the Huachuca mountains.  Finally the work whistle blew and I meet my buddy who is just starting into hunting to take him out and show him how we glass in AZ.  Unknown to the both of us at the time this was going to be a teaching session from start to finish.  After getting to our glassing spot I still had to change out of my work cloths so my buddy began to glass aound.  Within minutes he has glassed a Doe here and another there.  After I finished changing I pulled out my 9x bino and did a quick scan and also spotted several Doe moving about.  Finally I pulled out the tripod and the 20x glass and started scanning the far bank of the huge wash we were hunting. After about 10 minutes I glassed up a small buck moving down the wash bank on the far side and low and behold behind him was a shooter.  The wind was terrible for a stock from where we were sitting so I made a big loop to get into position above the Deer.    Once I was finally able to peek over the bank I spotted the smaller buck feeding in a small thicket of mesquite 95 yards away.  I could not see the larger buck so I just stood there picking the patches of brush apart until finllay I could make out the backend of another Deer bedded down. I figured that was the big boy so I eased along the side of a small bush hoping that when they got up to feed they would move into my bow range.  The smaller buck beeded down shortly after I had gotten settled by the bush and it was 2 1/2 hours before they decided to
