I always hear about how difficult coues deer hunting (at least for a good buck) can be. Lots of glassing for a small target over difficult terrain, basically looking for that needle in a haystack. You Sir make it look easy!:D

That looked alot more aggressive than the sparring of young bucks. I'd be marking those areas for next season and never showing my friends those videos.

So here is a coues deer that scores 180" it's at the Safari Club Headquarters in Tucson.

It was shot by Bob (fake name). Bob is a well known guide for Coues Deer. The game and fish tried to get him for poaching but lost in a criminal conviction. They tried him in civil court and I don't know what he lost. He didn't lose the rights to the deer. From what I heard, he donated it to SCI. I am not sure why it's not considered a world record for B&C, maybe Bob didn't enter it.

Rumor has it that Bob shot it a day early (maybe) or on the Indian Reservation. I guess him and his partner got in a fight about it because it was already frozen hanging in the shop around opening day. All rumor. :).

Yeah that one buck was very aggressive. I was surprised that the lower buck was able stop that charging buck.

Thanks
Couple quick pointers, spotting scopes are for counting inches on a rack. Big eyes (binos) are king 15x56 anything HD and have to be on a tripod. Water even in the rut/winter. Elevation with cover and just a little bit of hiking or pockets that get overlooked by hunters.

Glass in a grid pattern and take your hands off the tripod and make sure your body is not touching any part of the tripod. Keep the glass still for 10-20 seconds.

My two cents
