Where to hunt Coues Deer

Coues Deer is a variety of a white-tailed deer that is especially coveted by hunters. They are smaller than most varieties of whitetail, and well adapted to the shrub, juniper pine and desert of the American Southwest. Many outfitters offer Coues deer hunts in New Mexico, Arizona, and the Sonora province of Mexico.

Price distribution

The price for guided Coues deer hunts starts from about $2,500. This will typically buy about five days of hunting in the archery season, with basic accommodation and catering. Add a few thousand more for a hunt in Mexico, where you can be sure of getting a tag for a rifle hunt. The most expensive Coues deer hunts are priced at about $5,000.

Hunting methods All hunting methods (8)

Look for Coues deer on higher altitudes (4,000-6,000 feet), near permanent water sources, in areas with a combination of open areas and cover (preferably juniper oak). Whitetails are hunted with a variety of methods depending on terrain, habits, and local laws and traditions. Both hunting from a stand, where a hunter watches from a likely area, either from a treestand or ground blind, and still-hunting and spot-and-stalk are possible for Coues deer hunting, and the guides will select the method that best suits the environment, the hunter, and the circumstances.

Why hunt Coues Deer?

White-tailed deer are perhaps the most popular game animal in the world, and deer hunting is the “default” hunting in the US and Canada. Coues deer inhabit areas that are usually the domain of mule deer - patches of cover in dry semi-desert - and the adaptation to unusual habitat brought about different body and antler shape and behavior. For the majority of American hunters it’s not the familiar “deer” found near home, but an exotic animal requiring long travel to hunt. A Coues deer hunt will probably take you to strange, unfamiliar territory, giving deer hunting a whole new edge. But in any case it is a continuation of the tradition that is as old as America itself.
