Re: What caliber rifle for coues deer

Your .270 will do fine. Very popular round for hunting Coues. Your son is correct that 300-350 being common, but be prepared to shoot farther if possible. Practice out as far as you can - even if you don't feel comfortable shooting farther, the practice will make closer shots seem easier. Good luck!

I know a 300 RUM works well! This one was at 470 yards so be prepared to go long.What caliber rifle for coues deer-dscn0391.jpg

That's a gorgeous buck kudu, congrats. 300 RUM is my caliber of choice as well.

Re: What caliber rifle for coues deer

Almost 2 years ago, I took my long range tikka 595 rifle in .260 Remington, along with a bipod and a range finder, to make a 300-600 yard shot on Coues deer. The very first morning of the season, my rifle brought down a very decent Coues deer at the incredible distance of 50 (fifty) yards. Keep the scope's magnification at the extreme low end while walking.
