ABOUT THE HUNT
Rifle Coues Whitetail Hunts:
Arizona offers trophy Coues Whitetail hunters many opportunities to harvest quality bucks. Rifle hunts generally run in four timeframes, late October, early November, late November, and December. Many of our units offer general season rifle tags with high draw odds. Most of the Southern Arizona Coues Whitetail Units are at a 100% draw rate, either through the annual Mid-Winter Draw application process or available through Leftover Tag applications. You can draw an Arizona Coues deer rifle tag for trophy producing units nearly every year. Leftover Coues Whitetail Tags are available every year for many undersubscribed units. These Leftover Tags DO NOT AFFECT your BONUS POINTS in any way, allowing you to hunt our Coues Whitetail every year. Save your hard-earned bonus points for the high demand tags and hunt Arizona rifle Coues Deer!
Archery Coues Whitetail Hunts:
Over-The-Counter tags are available for archery seasons in August-September, December, and January throughout much of the state. The early season August-September archery hunts allow for the unique opportunity of harvesting a velvet-clad Coues Whitetail deer. Late season archery hunts take place during the pre-rut and rut phases. Late season hunts can be the best time to see Coues Deer interaction and activity. All of the archery seasons also offer ample hunting opportunity by allowing you to take either a Coues or Mule Deer with your bow.
How do I Get a Tag?
Most rifle Arizona Coues Whitetail Tags must be applied for and drawn through the AZGFD Mid-Winter Draw System. Unsubscribed units allow for the purchase of “Leftover Tags” after the Mid-Winter draw has occurred. These leftover tags in Southern Arizona units are a great opportunity for any hunter and DO NOT USE your BONUS POINTS. Non-Permit or Over-The-Counter tags can be purchased at any tag retailer across the state. If you have questions regarding the Coues Whitetail draw process, Leftover tags, or Archery Tags contact us. More information is also available in our Blog post: Understanding Arizona’s Big Game Draw and Application Process.

The Mid-Winter Draw takes place annually the second Tuesday in June, the next draw deadline in June 11th, 2019. Don’t miss it! Contact us for any application or hunt questions.
How long are the Hunts?
Arizona general season rifle Coues Whitetail hunts are typically 7-days in length for the October and November seasons. December tags can run for up to three weeks depending upon the year and calendar shift. Archery Coues Whitetail hunts can be booked in 5,7,10, or 14-day increments during any of the three Over-The-Counter seasons. Hunt date will vary based on which hunt is applied for and drawn.
About the Units:
The smallest hunted subspecies of the White-tailed Deer in North America, the Coues Whitetail call much of central and southeastern Arizona home, commonly regarded as the most prized and most challenging of deer species for North American hunters. Aptly called the "Grey Ghost" Coues deer inhabit much of the same terrain as our Arizona Black Bear. Highly adapted desert dwellers Coues Whitetail bucks average from 90-130 pounds depending on region and exist in a range generally from 3000-7000 feet in elevation. Just like their larger, more widespread, eastern cousins Coues Whitetail are wary animals, living in dense cover, and disappearing into the landscape within seconds.
Coues Whitetail Deer are highly sought after in Arizona, a rewarding and beautiful deer species, offering a challenge to any hunter. We hunt Coues in Central and Southern Arizona, a more physically demanding hunt than other deer species, we spend much of our time glassing with high quality optics from vantage points over vast areas. It is common to locate deer a mile or more away pursuing these tiny giants with pure Spot-and-Stalk methods. Typically shots are taken from 200-400 yards. Long-range capable guns are highly recommended for well-practiced hunters. Proficiency with your weapon will drastically improve your odds of harvest one of these incredible small-statured animals
