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!

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