Ok, archery deer opens Friday, where is everyone going fer their buck?
I am going back to unit 22, I have been trying to get a whitetail with my bow for quite a few years, and have either missed or been messed up somehow. But, I have a good feeling about this hunt.
I have had a decent year so far, I have taken a javelina, 2 eastern whitetails and an antelope, but I would love to ad a Coues.

Not sure exactly where yet. If it stays dry, I'll hunt the deserts over water. If it's wet/rainy, I'll still hunt the deserts, spot and stalk.

Garth, I have a strong hunch a nice coues buck will be added to your mix bag this year.

Not too sure yet either. 41, 39, or 42?? Strong chance, since I know 42 as well as I do, that could be the place. It seems no matter how much scouting and looking around in the off season I do, I always come home to 42.

There's a good chance I'll be hunting where Az Thunder is hunting.

Your huevos are gonna freeze archerman. I've been in 23 in December in a bad snowstorm and it wasn't too bad. Until it warmed up one day, everything started to melt, then it got cold. I landed on my butt multiple times daily.

Garth, I have just the deer picked out for Dan. If it doesn't cause him to short circuit when it walks up on him then nothing will. I'd probably just pass out. I'm heading out to the spot on Friday. I'm seriously considering shooting the first legal deer that gets in range just to get it out of my blood. I wouldn't be nearly as trigger happy in Jan.

Bruce,
Tell Dan to do 50 jumping jacks and then shoot his bow to simulate what his heart will be doing....hehehe.
I would love to video that!

Somewhere in either 32 or 33.Or maybe both. I dont know yet. Havent decided. And I have to take my Brother in Law out also. So if he goes we will be hunting low and chasing mulies. if he dosent go I will be up high chasing the coues. Several dozens of arrows launched and not a one connected with a coues as of yet. I really need to rectify that. LOL.....

Good luck to those of you going out.

I've got to work opening weekend. Mid week I'll be in unit 29. Looking for another coues. I just love those little deer. Almost as much fun as hunting varmints.

And all this time, I thought coues were varmints. :roll: JK/LOL.

I honestly don't know how anyone ever sticks one with an arrow, including Randy Ulmer. Those coues are the most skiddish creatures on the planet.

I know what you mean, my son use to kill one on a regular basis - if'n he wasn't my son I'd hate him.

The coues have a way of jumping your string. I've seen it done several times. You never know where for sure to aim. Should it be in front, above, behind or low? Which way is he going to jump, or dart away? Chances are good that your going to miss him. But every once in a while one fouls up and doesn't jump. A person sure can mess up alot of arrows with those little deer. I have seventeen arrows. I hoping that's enough. :)

Cochise,

I've launched about a dozen arrows tword unit 29 from unit 32 that I have never recovered. 4 of those NASA has called me about already. :? if you happen to run across any of the others please use as needed but return the rest if you could PLEASE. :D :D . One of these days I will figure out how to hit one of those stinking little coues. Everytime, after the shot the range finder shows me the distance about 30 yards closer then the pin used in the shot. :shock: :shock: :shock:


I HATE archery hunting for coues. But will be back at it either Friday or Saturday. Cochise if you hear incoming hide behind a big tree. as anything with deer antlers on it will get an arrow flung at it..

I have no idea where I will be, just somewhere in the desert. I can't wait for Jan to get here so I can hunt. Just put on some Winners Choice cables, I swapped the string in Aug before my elk hunt, and am getting everything dialed in. Not sure until I set up my chrono but I believe I amy have picked up a few fps with the new cables, I know it is a little quieter with them.
