    Never found him! I checked for 3 days strait with no success. I never even saw buzzards or coyotes eating anything. 90% he didn’t die.
  2. Anyone have and are willing to sell 27.5” PSE Full Throttle Cams. Or know of anyone who has these cams that I could buy. Thanks any help is much appreciated.

    Big Coues Buck Hit! Need help....

    So I personally believe I hit one lung just by his body language. I’ve killed many bucks and the lethal boiler room shots always yield a buck running like a bat out of heck! As for my Broadhead it’s a swhacker. Not more than a week old broadhead .

    Oldwhitetail hunter what you explained here is exactly my scenario. But yes I’m trying my absolute best to recover this deer. Hopefully I’ll be able to tag him🤙🏽 Thanks for the advice man.

    There’s water about 1/3rd of a mile near there should I concentrate my search there?

    No pass through and I never found my arrow. The arrow looked stiff when he ran though.
  8. Hello my fellow coues experts. I had a question regarding a coues buck I recently shot. He was 73 yards and I shot him what looked like to be behind his arm pit. As soon as the arrow hit him he bucked and took off like a bat out of heck!!! Seen the arrow stick out of his cavity as he went on a strait death run. I seen him crash in some brush about 200 yards away. I got so happy because I thought it was a wrap! I gave him an hour before I started tracking, But I didn’t feel good so I backed out and came back in the morning. The blood trail was sparse as it gave decent drops of blood about every 5 yards or so. Once the trail got about 250 it virtually stopped completely. Below is a picture of some of the aftermath that was left from where I last saw him fall. From the picture below can you guys tell me where exactly I hit this buck?
  9. Hunted this buck for 8 strait days. I seen him scouting 1 time before my hunt. Never to see him again for 2 strait weeks. The times I did see him he was way out in a completely different location miles away. The buck was always on the move... For the few seconds I did have to see this buck I could tell he was an awesome deer; Deep forks, great mass and height! I called this deer “Ghost” he was unpatternable.. The buck never stayed in a certain area like almost all bucks do. This buck knew that staying in any given area for too long was bad news for him. Super smart deer! To make things even more difficult he was the only buck in the dam area not chasing does😂 Including scouting and my hunt I only seen this deer 3 times and the only time I seen him was at the last 10 minutes of shooting light; completely nocturnal animal. Below is the story on how it went down... I spotted a buck at 1 mile at dawn. When I put the spotting scope on him I could tell it was a shooter buck(not ghost). The buck was herding and rutting these does hardcore. It didn't take me long to pack up all my gear and start closing the distance on them. I get to a half mile of them and these deer rutted over the top of this hill away from me. I didn't wanna run right into them and spook them so I gave It about 30 minutes and just glassed the two drainages that came out from where they dropped into. I did this to make sure that they didn’t escape out of this pocket when I ventured into it. They never did so I headed over to the deer trail and started track them to where they went, I pursued them extremely slow because I knew I could get really close hunting this method. I tracked them for half a mile when I noticed ears walking towards me 100 yards away. I get down on my belly and just watch these deer get 20 yards to me and feed right around me lol they had no clue I was there. So then I see a 3x3 buck about 150 yards away and I grunted at him to try and pull him closer. He came in 20 yards and had a stand off with me and had no clue where the grunting had come from. He was looking around for 10 minutes right in front of me. The buck then started grazing and eventually met up with the does that were right in front of me. It was at that moment that I started hearing grunting and trampling like a stampede lol I just got ready on my belly cuz I knew something was lurking in front of me lol. I pulled my muzzleloader and have it on my side as I'm laying in my back. I then see about 25 deer within 30 yards of me. All I could see was little heads pop up out of nowhere. Then behind the does herding them up is a different buck than what I had seen this morning. An even bigger buck had pushed the big buck I seen this morning out of the group in the span of like an hour. This buck happened to be my target buck. "Ghost" I called this buck ghost because this buck I tried hunting for 7 days with no success. The smartest creature I have hunted lol. He had no pattern to hunt and never showed himself. He was nocturnal. But anyways this buck was pushing the does, nudging them in the rump and grunting like a mad man😂 I got on my knees as he got 50 yards from me and I let him have it. It took me 3 shots to bring that bad boy down. Here he is fellas, an awesome desert mule deer with a muzzleloader🤙🏽

    Albino Coues Whitetail Deer😳😳😳

    Now I’ve seen guys post deer once or twice on this forum in which they thought was albino but it was a young fawn in its young color phase. This here is an older doe who is FULL albino lol... She even has red eyes. I still can’t believe what I seen today....
  12. Okay guys I went scouting today and I seen something that seemed like I was in a fantasy.... After seeing countless whitetail deer. I spotted some in a pocket really high in a canyon and what I seen next you would not believe......

    Unit 21 Help!!!

    Hello my fellow hunters, My brother in law recently drew a bull elk tag Starting November 29th. We are totally new to elk hunting and I wanted to reach out to whomever would be willing to share with us where there is a good camping area. We intend on getting in there with a camper near verde rim? Is that even possible? Maybe it’s better to get a cabin elsewhere in the unit? I unfortunately have not had a chance to go out scouting with my bro so I would appreciate any help. We are also meat hunters and would not mind killing a spike lol. Any advice would be much appreciated for camping/hunting👍🏼 Sincerely, Coues Archer
