> NM Paul. How did
>the hunt turn out?
Never saw a shooter. Hunted every day of the hunt, and 1 scouting day. I know several outfitters killed some really good bucks on the hunt, but, I never saw better than a 170 buck the first weekend.
I think the mature bucks were still in their hidey holes and I could not find them. Hiked into a lot of cool country, found almost 30 sheds, worked the high country a few days as well. I think some weather may have moved them out of their safe places, but, it never happened for me.
Honestly, I think with the same effort I put out on that hunt we could have killed a mature buck on a 0 point 3rd season CO deer unit. Maybe not a 200"+ buck, but, a mature 180+ and with luck maybe bigger. AZ will be about Coues going forward for me.
