Coues Deer Hunts
Coues deer are tiny, desert-dwelling siblings of the common whitetail.
Properly, they are simply a subspecies, Odocoileus virginianus couesi, but their habits and the landscape in which they live set them apart. You can’t hunt them like typical whitetails — coues country is too big and too wide-open. You’ve got to be able to glass well, stalk long, and shoot precisely. If you want a coues whitetail, you’ll have to shake off the lazy conventions ingrained by too many years of sitting in tree stands and actually hunt.
