Back From Mexico

It's always exciting to go to Mexico to hunt coues deer, and always nice to be back in the US.  We had a blast and filled all 8 tags in our week long trip.  The weather was a little on the hot side, then rained on our last day there.  The rut was in full swing and made for a great trip.

Here are a few pictures of our trip with more photos and stories to follow.  Viva Mexico!

Two Firsts for Tyson

Last weekend found myself with my two sons Devin and Dane taking a good friend Tyson Webb Javelina hunting in unit 6A. We hunted some extremely rough country seeing Rocky Mountain Bighorn, Coues Whitetail and pigs both days we hunted.

Morning one started with Tyson spotting the first game of the hunt and yes it was pigs! The stalk was on and it was quite a stalk. With Devin leading both Tyson and Dane up hill multiple times, wearing them down pretty fast.  The pigs finally slowed down enough for them to catch up and make good on a 47 yard shot with a short track job to his first bow kill. Congrats on making a great shot on a hard earned pig.

Morning two found Dane and myself perched high on our glassing point while Devin and Tyson were making a few stands trying to score on an AZ grey fox. It only took 3 or 4 stands before an aggressive male responded to the call which resulted in a short 10 yard shot from a 12 guage with #2's and Tyson had his second first of the weekend.
We had a great time in some extremely rough country, having great success, enjoying each others company, and  spending some quality time in the AZ outdoors.

Great glassing country for AZ Rocky Mountain sheep, coues, and most important Pig!

Heading South of the Border

Some friends and I are just days away from heading to Sonora, Mexico to hunt coues deer for a week.  It's been a couple years since we've been down there, so we are pretty excited.  Hopefully we will have plenty of stories and pictures to post when we get home.

Here are some pictures of our previous trips to Mexico.  Enjoy.

AZ Strip Mule Deer Video

Check out this awesome video of some Giant mule deer off the AZ Strip.  This video is by my good friends Brec and Bronson Bundy of Mule Deer Addiction Outfitters.  These guys eat and sleep giant mule deer.  All the footage is from this past year on the Strip.  Enjoy.
