any southern AZ coues hunters ?

I haven't been in some years now, staying more local, but used to have a real bug for those guys. Years ago it was "any" deer as well down there, but haven't seen that for many years now. Usually we were in 35b, but pretty sure we've been in 34b as well previously. Pretty rough terrain too.

I think they're a little tougher hunt myself...

what area do u live 5a abouts

I live in east Mesa. Grown a lot and fast since we moved here about 25 years ago. When my wife quits working/retires, maybe sooner, we want to go north some where it's cooler... and with less people too, ha!

I've had my eye on coming

I once was trying to get a job and locate in Idaho, in Lewiston I think it is called... with Clark-(something) on the other side of a river? Been years now, but my wife was hip to it, started poking around for houses etc., but it all fell through.. oh well.

Looked like pretty country. If I had the money, there are several places/states I'd like to try hunting in... sigh.

I have managed to draw two

I have managed to draw two tags in the last 14 years in unit 33.  One of them for archery and the other was a rifle tag.  So far I have struck out twice but saw shooters both seasons.  I just wanted a better one.

Lets see, I walk out my backdoor get into my truck and drive 806 miles to get there. 

But then I can hunt mulies, elk, and turkeys within 10 minutes of my house.  I guess it all depends on where you need to go.

I do, I do

I will be back down in AZ this January trying for another Pope and Young Coues Buck.  I was stationed at Fort Huachuca from 2006 to 2008 and I was able to knock down two nice Coues and into the books.  I think you guys have seen the pictures in my galleries?  One of the more difficult animals to hunt with a bow, they don’t call them the gray ghost for nothing.  Next year I'm lookin for that P&Y Muley in CO.

I had some buddies that used to apply as a group and go hunt over there from San Diego.  I have not done it yet, but plan on putting it on the to do list.
