Bowhunting Coues Deer in the Lower 48

There are five different species of deer as recognized by Pope and Young in North America. The Whitetail Deer is the most heavily hunted animal in North America. There is also the smaller sub-species called the Coues Deer, pronounced "cows". There are also the Mule Deer, Sitka Blacktail Deer, and the Columbia Blacktail Deer. P&Y minimums for the 5 species start with Coues Deer at 70, Sitka Blacktail at 75, Columbia Blacktail at 90, Whitetail at 125, and the Mule Deer at 145.

Coues Deer

While few bowhunters think about pursuing coues deer, those who have quickly get the bug to continue to hunt the "gray ghosts." BSC has outfitters in Arizona and Mexico. The hunts in AZ are available in late August and early September, as well as January. Hunts in Mexico are available in December and January. BSC has outfitters in New Mexico and in Old Mexico that we recommend.
