    Please welcome AZ Ground Pounders Outfitters!

    The AZ Ground Pounders are excited to be the featured sponsor on CouesWhitetail.com. We are currently booking lion hunts and are offering a CouesWhitetail.com special. If anyone mentions Coueswhitetail.com while booking we will offer $250 off of their lion hunt. Like matthewp45 said, Cash and Steel are lion hunting six days a week every week.
  3. The AZ Ground Pounders got real aggressive on three lions during Mid December. The first Lion caught was a Tom for Buck Brush Outfitter's Matt Smalley. Matt came out to hunt with the AZ Ground Pounders and connected on his Tom the second day of his hunt. Matt made a great shot with his .45-70 and put the big Tom down. The second Lion was caught by Steel and Hunter Haynes. Steel and Hunter got some great video of the Lion. Steel pulled the dogs off and the Lion made its getaway. The third Lion of the week was caught on the seventh day. Jay Scott and Darr Colburn of Colburn and Scott Outfitters glassed a good Tom and called the AZ Ground Pounders to get him caught. Hunter Cody Goff decided it was time to kill his first lion. He made good on his shot and finished off a great week of lion hunting for the AZ Ground Pounders. More of the story and video of the lion can be found at jayscottoutdoors.com View the full article
  4. Jimbo Armstrong was drawn for the Late 23 Bull tag. He knew he would be able to kill a good bull with the help of the AZ Ground Pounders. Levi and Waylon began glassing every chance they got for a good bull. Levi glassed a good six by six bull from around 2 miles. They made a move on the bull to get some good video of the bull. After showing the video to Jimbo it was decided that on opening morning he was the bull to hunt. Opening morning found Jimbo, Levi and Waylon glassing from the closest knob to where the big bull was found. Adam Munson was glassing from the top of the ridge to make sure the bulls didnt work theur way out of canyon. Jimbo immediately found a couple 300 type bulls. About twenty minutes later Levi glassed bull in the bottom of the canyon. Waylon put the spotting scope on him and confirmed he was the big six. There was another bull with him that had short fronts but a twenty inch third on one side. Jimbo decided to kill the straight six. Levi ranged the bull at 525 yards and turned the custom turret on Levi's Custom .300 Win Mag. Jimbo made a perfect shot on the bull and he only made it about 7 yards. The pack out took all day but it was well worth it for an opening morning 340 plus bull. The bull was unique because he had a three foot scar down his back where either a lion or bear got to him at some point. View the full article
  5. Waylon waited 9 years between Coues tags. This year he drew one of the state's premier late tags in the AZ Ground Pounders favortite unit. Levi, Cash, Steel and Waylon began scouting immediately. Some good bucks were found during the fall but it wasnt until two weeks before the hunt when Levi found the one. Levi and buddy Derek Daniels went to check spot when Levi glassed a deer's leg in the sun sticking out of a oak brush. When the buck stood up Levi quickly named the buck Sunny Governor because he was worthy of the annual governor's auction tag . Levi watched the buck for the next two weeks straight. The first morning of the hunt had Waylon and Levi sitting in the first major snow storm of the season with about 200 yards visibilty. The next two days were just as bad. Finally on the fourth morning of the hunt the clouds broke and the sun began to melt the snow. Governor stood up in the sun and pushed a smaller buck away, never giving Waylon a chance. The next day the buck stood up but again did not give a good shot opportunity. Waylon finally got the chance to come back and hunt on the 7th Day of the hunt. The buck was not seen that afternoon. On the 8th Day of the hunt Levi and Waylon were in the spot glassing before day break. It was a cold overcast morning and they both had a good feeling about the day. At 8:30 the clouds broke and sun started to shine on the ridge. 15 Minutes later Levi glassed the buck coming out of a pinion tree 750 yards away. Waylon quickly jumped in the gun and had him in the scope. The buck was cruising just like the other encounters but this time the AZ Ground Pounders were ready. Levi ranged the buck at 698 yards and Waylon turned the custom turret to 7. Waylon told Levi "when the buck stops I'm gonna kill him." Waylon squeezed the trigger on Levi's custom .300 Win Mag. Levi said "He is hit hard. The buck ran up the hill but he was hurt." The giant buck bedded in the middle of an opening. Waylon was going to shoot him again but when Levi went to get out of his Swarovski 15s he bumped the tripod. When he relocated the opening, the buck was gone. Waylon told Levi that he had never squeezed off a shot better in his life. They waited for Cash, Steel Jimbo and Derek to get there from another glassing spot. After 4 hours of waiting Jimbo and Steel decided to walk from the back side of the ridge to make sure that the buck wasnt injured and running off. When Steel approached the spot where the buck was last seen he found some fresh tracks and smelled deer. Steel looked to the right and said in to the radio Waylon's new favorite phrase,"Got him." The shot was a perfect center punch through both shoulders. Waylon would like to thank Levi for all of his help in the past 4 months, Cash, Steel and Jimbo for all of the early morning glassing trips. And also thank Derek for helping Levi during the two weeks of watching the giant buck. Sunny Governor scored 125 4/8ths and has 9 1/2 eye guard and a 4 inch kicker off of the other eye guard. It is the Coues Buck of a lifetime on the Coues Hunt of a Lifetime. View the full article
