My brother and I just returned from our first Az Coues hunt. The travel was terrible with snow packed roads but the hunting was really fun!

We both managed to find bucks we are really happy with.

Cory Shot his buck at 325 yards with his 270 WSM and 150 gr. SST. One shot right thru the heart and he piled up about 10 yards away.

I shot my buck at 565 with my 270 Win Using 150 grain ballistic tip handloads. I recovered one of the bullets that entered behind the last rib and was lodged under the hide in front of the shoulder on the offside.

What an amazing experience hunting a very cool animal!ImageImage

Thank you! I grew up a bow hunter and am used to killing animals using feet as a distance! My last three rifle kills are all over 500. I’m thankful for quality equipment and practice which helps me when closing the distance is not really an option.

I shot him twice but the second shot was not necessary. He was just about to fall.

Well done! That's a hunt that's on my bucket list, for sure!
