Coues deer/Mule deer conundrum

Well, I have a serious problem. I shouldnt complain as it should be a good problem to have. The problem is that I have enough bonus points this year in Arizona to put me in the "1st bonus point pass" for the 20% quota that goes to max point holders to draw any deer hunt I want south of the colorado river. My delima is there are 2 hunts that I desire equally. One is a rifle rut hunt for coues whitetails and the other is a rut mulie hunt with a muzzleloader (inlines, scopes and sabots ARE legal!). So the ML hunt may as well be a rifle hunt since I can use a scope of any power, sobots and inlines. Decisions, decisions....................I really cant make up my mind.

ARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

Re: Coues deer/Mule deer conundrum

For ME, it's not even a consideration. I've lusted over hunting for a Coues for as long as I can remember. A rut hunt for a nice Muley would be nice... But a rifle hunt for Coues, now that's a dream come true.

But that's just me. I've not had the chance to hunt either so far. You've hunted sheep many times... that nocks #1 off my wish list so I don't know where that leads to! I got to see a good number of sheep when I was hunting caribou in Alaska, I'll be back for one! When considering deer though, a Coues is at the top.

Either way, you can't go wronge.

The ML hunt is before the peak of the rut yeah, but having bowhunted the areas in the past many times has shown me that the big boys are still out lookin for girls the last week in December which is when the hunt would be.

If I opt to go coues, it will be unit 22.
