    FILLED FOR JANUARY 2016 BUT PLAN TO GO AGAIN IN 2017.
    *******************************************************

    I enjoyed my first ever rifle Coues deer hunt in Mexico about 13 years ago. It is time to go back! And I love that the dates are in late January. I get stir crazy waiting so long after the end of the fall hunting seasons. I really, really need a hunt at this time of the year. :)

    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.

    Here is the story of my 2002 Coues hunt in Mexico. They Called me El Diablo!

    This time I'll be going with Ward's Outfitters. 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.

    Thanks for your interest but we only had one spot left and a couple hours before your post Smitty50 emailed and said he's in and will send paperwork today.

    So it looks like we are filled...assuming all 3 hunters follow through with check and paperwork.
