    Could you post some more pictures of the terrain and landscape?

    We are headed that direction over the next couple years and are curious.

    I thought of taking some other pictures but they wouldn't do the area justest.

    The first area that we were spotting and stalking the deer in was almost what you would call flat, rolling hills and gullies until you got the the larger hills. Then they would rise another thousand feet up. This area contained bowls where we spotted most of the deer.

    The area that I got my buck was like a canyon. A dry wash in the bottom with side canyons branching off of it into bowls.

    All the areas had areas where you could find a vantage point and then start to glass to spot the deer.

    For this type of hunting I highly recommend 15x56 binoculars on the bottom end of power. I had a pair of 10x42 Swaro's and while I could see the deer I had no idea what they had on their heads. Then once the deer are spotted then pull out the spotter to see if they are worth going after.

    One thing that I didn't mention was that there is a archery mule deer hunt going on at the same time as this coues deer hunt is. The mule deer stay down low in the grass lands and scrub mesquite so they usually are not a problem but the coues deer is a very spooky deer and things can go bad quite quickly if another hunter should wander into the area and they spot them.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    Congrats! I have limited knowledge with coues deer but that looks like an absolute giant compared to other bucks I've seen!

    I understand Jim. Took a bunch of landscape shots this Fall, none of them compare to what I saw.

    It is a little bit ironic in that this could be the very deer that I missed last year. He was in the same area/drainage and it was a nice buck that I shot AT last year.

    But if not there is still a real nice buck in the area.
