    2015 Coues Deer

    Took me several years to learn this area with countless glassing sessions. I know there are bigger bucks in there than the one I shot last year and this year but they are tough to sneak up on (you all know that). I shot this deer a hundred yards from the spike I shot last year, one hour apart in time difference, and 364 days later. Crazy huh? When I first came upon this little guy, he was at 40 yards and feeding towards me. It was fun to watch him do his thing for a while. He got to about 28 yards and we started to play this cat and mouse game of him looking at me and then go back to feeding. He was having a hard time figuring me out. Wind and camo were in my favor. It was hard to wait and not move. I don't know how many times I told my self in my mind to "don't move". Once I felt that I had a good shot and he was feeding I pulled back and let one fly. I shot him quartering to me. Arrow went in his front right shoulder and out his rear left quarter. Full pass through. He went about 30 yards and piled up. I know he isn't a monster of a deer but these Coues deer are tough to hunt and I consider him a trophy and a lot of meat in the freezer.

  7. I have a couple of the covey's marked in 35B. Ran into them during the August deer hunt. They were small, however (3-5birds). I marked them on the GPS and when I returned they are no where to be found.

    First deer ever 35B

    Well I got my first deer ever this weekend in 35B. Not a big one but a trophy to me. I spent all summer scouting and planning this hunt. I had some really nice deer on trail camera but when the moment happened it was this little guy. To honest I made sure he had antlers and that was about it before the shot. I knew what ridge these bucks were using to go from bedding area to water. I still hunted the ridge moving as slow a possible. I stopped in the shadows and made sure I had a back drop to hide my outline. I saw him coming and waited for him to appear on the other side of the juniper tree. He stepped out at 22 yards and I doubled lunged him. He was quartered slightly away from me. He went about 15 feet which made for an easy recovery. Over the past couple years I have chased Coues after Coues with no luck. At times it has even been heart breaking but in the end it was worth the wait. I wouldn’t trade this buck for anything. I earned him and grateful for this buck and the opportunity to hunt.
