Very nice. You just don't see a lot of field photos of velvet Coues.

Nice coues. Thought you would have been heading for CO.

Me too......but after a buddy scouted the high country and only saw a handful of bucks in the bowls, with the best being a mid-160's type buck, I wasn't too pumped to chase that size mule deer this year......especially alone for 10 days. I've always wanted to try and arrow a Coues deer.....so figured this would be my best opportunity since I had a tag in my pocket from January. They sure are an elusive and spooky deer.

They sure pretty deer RUTTIN.....I forgot to mention, this deer came with a cost. I had no idea chiggers even lived in Arizona. I have officially counted 109 chigger bites on my body! :(

What a great buck! I think it would be fun to hunt Coues deer sometime. And chigger's? Yuck! They are not very pleasant!
