Pics of highlights from coues whitetail hunt.

Well my annual winter retreat is over. I did not harvest a coues deer this season but got lots of sun and fun in the south west! Tempratures were very hot, (60-70 degrees).Took lots of pictures of cool stuff. Most pictures taken were through a Swarovski 20-60x spotting scope with a digital camera. Most were taken a long ways away in very hot air or near dark. This is the reason some pictures are of only fair quality instead of perfect. Below is a sampling of my hunt. Enjoy!

Here is one of 4 bucks I was hunting. This picture was taken at over 1300 yards. He was about a 80" 8 point.



A doe feeding.



Some of the country I was hunting.



Me in a quandry over how to approach a nice buck within bow range!



Some gear that makes it possible.



A quail. These are elusive!



A bedded fawn and if you look closley behind it, you will see its mother.



Another bedded doe.



My cousin's 103" coues buck.



A big bedded bull elk. Estimated at 340" B&C.





Here is another bull that is broken up. Look at how long his right main beam is!



The kicker bull again.





Yet another nice bull pops out! Estimated at 350-360 B&C if not broken.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

A shame you did not hunt/harvest anything but at least you saw plenty of game. Nice pics.

Re: Pics of highlights from coues whitetail hunt.

Really beuatiful pictures, especially, the quail. The just scenery picture was good too.

What kind of bow were you using?

You can get some Rust O Leum spray paint primer and apply it to the little stool legs as camoflage. It will scrap off but works for a while.
