Another Arizona Coues

Here are a couple of photos of Dan Kasprzyk with a nice coues deer he harvested early in the late season in central Arizona.  Dan took this deer with one shot at 670 yards with his 7mm rem mag with a long range scope mounted on it.  According to his dad, Dick, the deer was in country that looked more like sheep country with all the bluffs and steep slopes.  Dan's buck grosses over 100".  Great buck and great photos.  This is a good example of how well your field photos can turn out if a person puts a little thought  and effort into it.  Congratulations Dan!

Another Massive Coues

Here is a buck that Ty Goodman of Goodman Outfitters guided a hunter to in central Arizona a couple of days ago.  He is super massive and grosses over 130".  Ty guides his hunters to some great bucks each year.  I believe the story is or will be posted on the Rutnhard website, as Ty sent me this photo and it is already marked with Goodman Outfitters and Rutnhard.  Congratulations to Ty and his hunter on a great coues deer.

Old Nelsoni Ram

Here is Steve Hovik with his Nelsoni desert ram he harvested a couple of weeks ago.  This ram is quite old and has the most chipped up horns I have ever seen on a desert sheep.  He definitely did his share of head butting over his lifetime.

Niece's first deer

My niece Megan harvested her first deer a couple of weeks ago.  She hunted with her three cousins and it was the first time hunting for all of them.  Even though Megan was the only one to get a buck, they all had a lot of fun and learned alot.  She is pictured with her dad, Tim, and her brother Gage.

Old Warrior Ram

Here is Brian Johnson with his desert ram he took on opening day of his hunt.  This ram is 10+ years old and has the horns and scars to show it.  Brian and friend Mattew Phillips watched this ram for over a week before the hunt and he stayed within a quarter mile area the whole time.  This ram has 15" bases and carries the mass well, with a gross score of a little over 171 B and C;  He should make the minimum for B and C after the 60 day drying period.
