Check out this Coues deer that was just found in central Arizona. The lucky guy that found it checked it with Game and Fish and they determined that it was killed by a mountain lion. It is unbelievable how many giant bucks are taken by lions. They are by far superior hunters compared to us humans with our high powered rifles and optics. I put a quick tape on the buck and he grosses 144 inches and nets 139 nontypical. He has a 129 3/8 gross, 124 3/8 net mainframe with 14 5/8 of extras. His beams are an incredible 21 3/8 and 22 6/8 in length. The photos don't do this buck justice with his height, width and massive bases All I can say is I hope that he passed his genes along before the lion got him.

Here is a photo of Logan Anderson with his bull that he brought in to have scored a few weeks ago. Logan took this bull on an Arizona archery hunt last fall. The bull officially grosses a little over 414 and nets just over 400". As you can see from the photos it is a very impressive bull. I believe that this was a limited opportunity hunt.

Here are more photos of the bucks taken in Mexico a couple of weeks ago. Friends Houston Davis, Darin North and Jeremy Gugelmeyer all took nice bucks. Houston took his 105" buck at over 700 yards, quite impressive shooting. Darin took his 97" buck and I believe it was over 500 yards. Jeremy took his buck with a closer shot and it is 108" with a broken G-4 or else it would have been 111-112. We had a great trip and are looking forward to hopefully returning next year.
