John has been hunting Coues for several years and sent in photos of the many bucks he has taken. The first two pics show a buck that goes with the following story.
“It was the last day of my early Coues white tail deer hunt and I still hadn’t filled my tag. That morning before sunrise, my girlfriend Lee Anne and I decided to go to one of my favorite low land ridges where mostly mule deer graze, but this morning we stumbled onto a small herd of 5 bucks and 16 doe. The ridge Lee and I sat on was adjacent to the other where the deer fed, I had one shot to take at this buck before he would race about ten feet into extremely thick low-land brush. I pulled the trigger on my brand new Remington .308 after taking aim and it was game over.”
