Dean was the last to strike on a great coues buck. He actually was able to harvest his buck on the same hill that Eric's buck was on the same afternoon. The events were kind of crazy to have two really good bucks on the same hill. Dean harvested a cool buck with us last year as well. It is always a pleasure to spend time with Dean and listen to his stories of hunting all over the world!

I was excited to have my friend Eric Johnson, from Wyoming, on his first coues deer hunt with us. We had lots of fun taking some good hikes looking for a good coues buck. Eric elected to pass on a few bucks looking for the right one and on day 5 it was his turn. A few days earlier two good bucks were spotted in the same area but they were rutting to intensely that we couldn't get on them. Our whole team was looking in this area where Seth Meeske and Hunter Haynes had see these bucks. I was looking way off in the distance when a quick pan below me struck gold. The stalk was on and Hunter Haynes and Eric were able to get within range of this trophy buck. This was truly a full team effort!

Tom W. was the first to harvest in Sonora, Mexico on our second week of hunting. We moved to a different ranch and the views were amazing. It was such a pleasure to get to know Tom who is an Army Veteran. Tom's buck was really covering country making scrapes and chasing does. We watched him make a big circle looking for a hot doe. Tom had a sweet buck down on the first day!

We were joined by renowned wildlife sculptor, Tim Shinabarger, from Billings, Montana on the first coues deer hunt in Mexico. Tim was able to harvest a really neat buck with great character that ended up scoring high. Colburn and Scott Outfitter's guides Darr Colburn and Hunter Haynes captured the hunt on video.
