  1. So about a month ago I posted a picture of a buck that I knew was going to be something special. For one reason or another I had some nay sayers say that it would score 135”😂😂😂 Another person had the audacity to say “why I posted a picture of nice buck and ask the score if I already knew what it would score”??😆 Really now? Crazy how inept some people really are... Then to top it off they post pictures of deers killed over 35 years old in the kaibab😂 You keep tootin your horn homie😆 But nontheless I only care about True Desert Southern Arizona Mule deer bucks. It truely is something special when a person kills a DIY 180” Southern Arizona Archery Desert Mule Deer. After countless stalks and days of hunting this monarch I managed to close the distance to 39 yards and shot this bad boy in the jugular! Finished him off with a shot in the boiler room. Buck has 6” bases and all mass measurements are 5 inches+🤙🏽 Good luck to all you hunters I hope y’all get some good ones. And to you nay sayers just picture me rollin🤙🏽😎😂🦌🤘🏽#GodIsGreat #MuleDeerPutasos #BigBuckDown #180+Club

    Thank you all for all the support. I hope all of you have some good luck this year for your upcoming hunts. I will keep y’all updated on what this buck will score after the 60 day dry period. Until then... Take care fellas🤙🏽

    Yeah man I agree. Archery is so unpredictable just to many variables in play and bad shots happen all the time... But in the horns huh😂 that would have sucked had I hit this guy in his horns lol

    I like your style Delw🤙🏽 I practiced everyday for the last 3 months so I was super confident going into this hunt. I was hitting 6 inch groups at 90 Religiously so I was good out to that range. When the 39 yard shot presented itself I knew it was a wrap👍🏼

    Absolutely not bro. I was up hill from him and I attempted to make a downhill frontal shot on his chest. When I shot he jumped the string and tried to turn. The arrow zipped right through his neck without hitting his neck bone. He ran 70 yards and fell down so I ran up too him all full of buck fever and put one in his heart🤙🏽Never in my wildest dreams would I attempt a neck shot... It just happened to hit him there given the circumstances. it’s not ethical and it’s too hard of a shot when shooting at a 180 buck😉😂 I got lucky it hit him there bro

    What does he score???

    I took a picture of this buck the other day. What do you think he will score once he’s done growing in a few weeks? Any guesses much appreciated.

    Hey man I’m not insulting the ones that gave there honest opinion. In fact I liked all y’alls posts. As for a couple of folks that were rude... This post is for them🤙🏽😉 Nothing against you or the ones who kept it real and were just honest.

    He looked like a mangy coyote😂 Hair falling off. He didn’t look pretty! Decided to wait till I get a nicer cape down the road in a year or two.

    Mature Big Desert Muley Buck Down

    He was dying on the ground but suffering so I put one through his heart and killed him faster. Did the ethical thing!

    What does he score???

    Absolutely 100% agree. I know this buck will be at least 155” in next few weeks once he’s done👍🏼 Definitely a shooter for the desert.

    What does he score???

    I’m thinking the same thing man🤙🏽

    What does he score???

    SCI?

    What does he score???

    I honestly have him at 150 right now. But I was thinking a possible 160 after 3 weeks of growth.
  19. Hello CouesWhitetail Members, I hope everyone has been doing well during these tough times. I've been practicing a lot of 3-D archery shooting lately and I have built up a setup to effectively shoot out to 120 yards and hitting vitals on demand. I have been able to achieve this type of accuracy thorugh paper tuning my bow and ensuring my arrows are perfectly tuned. Given that my bow/arrows/field points are dialed in using these two conventional methods "paper tuning" and "arrow tuning" i.e. squaring arrow/nock, spin testing etc. I've been testing to see which current fixed broadheads on the market actually fly and are accurate identical to a field point. So far I have bought/tested the QAD EXODUS, Ramcat hydroshock, ramcat diamondback, Trophy Taker ATAC, Trophy Taker Shuttle T, G5 Montec M3, Tooth of the Arrow. All in all the best performer by far which shot closest to the field point was the Trophy Taker ATAC but its not sharp which was a huge bummer. It was virtually identical to field point as far as windage but shot little low in elevation. I did adjust my rest to compensate for this drop and proceeded to shoot with extreme accuracy; I understand that this is a good thing but remember I'm looking for something that will I simply swap my field point with and will hit the target on demand. The Ramcat Diamondback finished second but required much tuning. Once dialed in I was able to get extreme accuracy as well. The Exodus came in third place but required much more tuning to get the head to fly correctly; once dialed in it could reliably hit vitals out to 80 then it started to be more inconsistent at 90 yards. The same could be said for the rest of the arrows in the list but all required to be tuned a little different. So my question to you guys is have you found a broadhead on the market that will literally give you field point flight/accuracy with a tuned setup no matter what distance. I have found expandable broadheads to achieve this but I have yet to achieve this with a fixed broadhead. Please note that I'm aware that form is a tremendous factor when it comes to shooting fixed broadheads and I know that.... Please don't bring this aspect into the conversation lol. Soon to test broadheads will be Slick Trick Standards, Strickland Helix and well any suggestions that you folks have from experience. Sincerely, Coues Archer

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    That's awesome haha. Thanks for your 2 cents man. I will most definitely look into these SEVR broadheads, they look promising for a mechanical. The Titanium TIP just looks sinister and looks like it would penetrate well.

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    With those kind of speeds no wonder it went right through those suckers lol. Hey that works for your setup but with me being 27" draw length I don't have many options for blowing through animals unless it s fixed blade. The only reason I have my skeptics with swhacker is because I shot a coues in the shoulder blade with one and it didn't do a dam thing to him. Granted with your setup getting 325 FPS; you can blow through anything with ease.

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    Hello bojangles, I agree with you 100%. Accuracy is the most important aspect when it comes to hunting. It's imperative to be able to put that broadhead where it needs to go. But in my experience, fixed blades do have a definite plus in the penetration department. All animals I've shot with a fixed blade have died immediately with all shots completely pass through the animal with ease. I currently shoot a swhacker and well.... Can't say the same about them. If you hit bone its not gonna be good.... SEVR on the other hand might be something to look into; in my eyes. The way it's designed I absolutely know it will get WAY more penetration than a Swhacker. Thanks for the info though I do understand where you're coming from.

    That's awesome! Thank you for the info. Please feel free to report how these vortex broadheads shoot for you.

    Nice. Thank you for your suggestions. I'll give those broadheads a try.

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    Very intriguing👌🏼 Now that’s something that’s worth a try. I will be purchasing a pair of each to see how they hold up at longer ranges. Thank you for for being helpful.
