Coues deer in Utah?

At a diner in Southern Utah I saw a small white tail mounted on the wall. The woman working there knew nothing about it. It was very small despite having 4 points each side and nicely shaped if small rack. I don't know how one tells age by the face but this deer looked middle aged to me. Later camped on a very small creek in a deep canyone I saw small deer track and scatt, quite a bit, but no deer. 

Still later while driving home I saw mule deer up above 8,000 feet where the snow was just barely melted. 

Do the low Utah Canyons have coues? It was about 20 miles W of Glen Canyon Recreation area at about 5800 feet in a canyone of permanent water.

There are no coues deer in

There are no coues deer in Utah other than the ones hanging on the walls of sportsmen. 

Even whitetails are limited to the northern section towards Wyoming and southern Idaho.
