Rich Reinert 2006
Unit 33, AZ
Here is what Rich had to say about this hunt:
This small Coues was suicidal it seems. Last January we were in Unit 33 and just finishing up caping my friend’s first pig, when I went to get something in my pack about 20 yds away. Looking up this young buck was standing broadside staring in our direction in the thick brush. I spoke loudly to my friend working on his pig that there was a buck, and he said well shoot it, thinking I was joking. I said OK, and just walked to my pack, put on my release, loaded an arrow and backed up to where I could see the deer again. Sure enough he was still standing there and I just estimated 50 yds and shot him. Turns out he was 51.5 yds. What are the odds of that happening? Anytime you can get a Coues buck eye to eye on the with a bow is a gift. He sure tasted great!
