My First Coues Deer

June 2, 2012 by CouesWhitetail in Hunt Stories with 0 Comments

by Brent Jones

I’m from the State of Washington and have been hunting mule deer for the past 20 years. My cousin, Neal Brown, is from Arizona. I’ve been hunting in Arizona with Neal for the last several years, mainly for javelina. But this was only my second opportunity to hunt Coues. My previous hunt was an unsuccessful November hunt a few years ago. That prior hunt gave me a true appreciation for the Coues whitetail. In three days, I only saw eight Coues deer, most of which were flat out running, none of which were bucks, and endured snow, hail, rain, fog, and gale force winds in the process. Quite an experience.

This hunt was quite the opposite. We saw our first mature buck in the first 20 minutes of opening morning (12/17/04) chasing 10 does around not more than 150 yards from us. After glassing bucks all day, I wound up taking this buck late in the afternoon of opening day. I used a .270 at about 250 yards. The buck is a 3×3 plus eyeguards, and rough scores about 99 inches, including 17 inch main beams, good mass, and an inside spread of 15 1/8.

Needless to say, I couldn’t be happier with my first Coues whitetail.
