Not sure how many Coues bucks have been taken via spot and stalk. I'll probably never succeed. But, oh what fun.

Southern Arizona in January is the essence of pure hunting fun, bow in hand. Not sure what I could be doing that time of the year that would give me more pleasure. If I find a better replacement, I'll be filming it.

If it's edible, we are chasing it and trying to convert it to food. Javelina, quail, ducks, jack rabbits, and yes, Coues deer.

Part 1 of 7 is now live on YouTube.

With all the rain this winter filling every small pool, sitting water is not an option. Given my antsy ways, it is seldom an option anyhow.

Part 2 of 7 is now live.

Video at the link provided.

How many times have you hiked all over the landscape, blown a stalk or two, only to have a close encounter right near where you parked the truck? Doesn't happen much with elk, at least for me, but with deer it seems to be a common occurrence. You'd think I would start paying attention to that pattern. But, that would imply I am smart enough to pay attention, a fact I disprove on a daily basis.

Great videos Randy. Can't wait to go back to Arizona!

Thanks for posting Randy!

I'm going to retire this coming May and I'm pretty sure I'll be in Arizona next December-January chasing deer, either Mule, Coues or both... I'm looking forward to it.

"How many times have you hiked all over the landscape, blown a stalk or two, only to have a close encounter right near where you parked the truck?"

Happens to me so often that I sometimes think I'd be better off just sitting in the truck instead of trudging through the woods.

Thanks again for these videos!!

Oh, it was delicious.

Next week we're releasing cooking videos of everything we cooked while there, including that Course hind quarter.

Thanks for watching.

Love coues hunting and was just about to go watch some of your shows on Amazon when I saw this post. It was tough going this year with all the water. I enjoy your work.

Mom always wants me to smoke her some deer quarters with mesquite when I am down. Shoulders and hams. It does turn out yummy!

What's not to like about Coues deer, ie, liver and onions, and red wine

I've always wanted to see falcons in action. Even more impressive than I anticipated.

Thanks, Randy. I've been interested in falconry my entire life as well. When I was in college I used to read about it a lot, and I even requested a packet of information from Arizona Game and Fish, but I've never actually done it. Thanks for sharing that.

That was cool! looks like a lot of dedication to Falconry but you can see how rewarding it can be. Thanks for sharing Randy, I can see where that would be pretty exciting.

Sorry Sheep Show had me occupied this week and this is a few days late.

Hard to see it from the footage, but the buck stood up behind a tree that was only 21 yards away. Like always, the doe busted us and the short time the buck was standing around, he was obscured by brush.

The food is just too good to be a hunting camp.

Watched these all yesterday. Really enjoy that it is the sounds of nature and the hunters without someone shredding a guitar solo or something else to try to make it "more entertaining" or "more dramatic". Plenty of that in the hunt itself! Oh, and watched Matthew's Wyoming elk hunt. What a beast! Not that it matters, but did you score it?

Nicely done Randy! Dang...that was close on that last buck...better luck next year! Also, great info on how the farm bill helps Arizona grassland wildlife...learn something new every day. And the chow, man-o-man you guys ate some great meals. That portable smoker with the javelina hams looked amazing. Great hunt...great video...good times! Thanks for sharing it with all of us. Kevin
