Arizona Coues Deer Hunting
Hunters that have taken all the species in the “deer slam” usually consider Coues deer hunting one of most rewarding hunting experiences they have ever had.
This is a glassing hunt, you will set up with good binos on a tripod and start picking the country apart. You will see A LOT of deer on all of these hunts. Once a good Coues buck is spotted, let the stalk begin. A fun, fun hunt… action packed.
