Three Bowsite regulars (BOHNTR, BOWUNTR and myself) had the recent honor of serving on a Pope and Young Special Panel to measure an incredible non-typical Coues buck that was determined to tie the current world's record! Wes Ely's buck scored an incredible 139 2/8, which matched Terry Edward's buck which was only recently declared a world's record back in April of last year (a score I wasn't sure would ever be matched). See the linked P&Y press release for a photo and more details. Congratulations Wes!

The cool thing is that it's an Arizona buck, not from Mexico, and had eluded Coues crazy guys for several years ...

More impressive is a mature Coues Buck evading the serious predator “the mountain lion”. Well done young man.
