Coues Deer on the Border

Postby m gardner » Mon Nov 08, 2010 5:23 am

I spent 3 days hunting Coues Deer here in southern Az about 8 miles north of the border. On the second day I finally found some does. This morning I got into a bachelor herd of bucks and tried to shoot the largest but it was impossible to get into a shooting postion in the rocks and thorns then when I did the darn deer kept trotting to the nearest waterhole and never stopped so I didn't shoot. I saw a spike awhile later but he stood with his backend to me and I figured the 300 would turn him inside out if I shot him lengthwise and there's little meat on these small deer to begin with so I passed. It is very rugged country with little hunting pressure because of drug traffic and human smuggling which makes it dangerous. Here's a couple of videos I took. One is a three hour walk from a trail and there's still litter the other is an old gold mine right next to a trail. Very interesting times we are experiencing.

Some spooky stuff for sure.

My brother and I have always wanted to do some prospecting for gold in southern Arizona but everybody says that if you go to take plenty of protection. :-k

I want to spend my time looking for gold not watching my back all the time.

Good Luck on your hunt.
Live to hunt, hunt to live.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell
the difference.
