    I had a great time with several of our LRH members this year (2016). We all took very nice bucks. We had multiple opportunities almost every day. I'm in the final editing stages on my 2016 Coues Deer Hunt Report. When we publish it in a week I'll link to it here.

    Update - Hunt Report - 2016 LRH Group Coues Deer By Len Backus

    So LRH is going back in 2017. But -- I will not be able to go in 2017.

    I was gone from home 82 days last year on hunts, shoots and hikes and 90% of it was without my wife. So when I got home from this trip after being gone two weeks to SHOT Show and the hunt I decided to wait a few days before springing it on my wife that I was going back again next year.

    Well, I am glad I waited since this gave her the chance to tell me she was ready to go on a long international trip that we had talked about for years. It'll be 3 weeks in Australia and new Zealand during our winter season which is their summer/fall. She deserves my support on this decision since she's been amazing in her support of my own hunt related travel.

    So with that additional travel commitment for 2017, I feel I can't do the Coues hunt.

    But some of you guys should because it's just a great hunt with a top notch outfitter.

    Hunting for Coues deer is one of the most classic long range, spot and stalk type of hunts available. Expect to spend hours at a time using your optics to find the buck of your choice. And then plan your stalk. Some of the best stories I read in print magazines many years ago were about Coues deer hunting.

    Steven Ward has been having incredible success in Arizona and in Mexico on Coues deer with many record book trophies. In fact one of his clients holds the SCI World Record of 135 - 7/8 inches.
