Got to make a trip down to Old Mexico in Mid-January for a Coues hunt. January is when they rut down there, so great time to get a chance at a good one. However, wind was horrible first 3 days and only a little movement early and late. Lots and lots of glassing, but cover is so thick, that it's nearly impossible to spot them if they're not on the move. Middle of 4th day the wind finally let up and rut really kicked into gear. We were driving around the ranch to different glassing points and spotted a good one from the road up hillside. Things got a little western at that point and my buddy gave me a range of 350 yards. Squeezed off a shot and had a complete whiff. Thankfully it's about what you would expect hunting whitetails in the rut with a rifle and they weren't overly concerned. He ended up moving back into cover following the doe he was locked on before I could get another shot. That gave me time to range the tree he was under and found out yardage was 406 yards. A couple minutes later he came back down the trail under same tree following the doe. And I drilled him with the 300NM. I rough scored him at 122 5/8". B&C is 110". 32" of mass, 9" G2's, 19" beams. Managed to blow it on a couple of booners over the years when I lived in Iowa, so stoked to get it done on this Coues even if it looks like kind of a baby compared to Iowa Whitetails!
