Do you hunt those Coues Deer down there in AZ? I've been watching episodes of Meateater where he hunts for them there.

I was assigned to work on FT. Hauchuca in the 90s and used to rent horses from the stable on base. One time I went by a small group of Coues Deer and passed them at about 5 yards and they just looked at me and the horse.

Deer can be odd on what they ignore. I am in a rural residential neighborhood, so the deer are slightly human habituated. So they typically don’t take off until a person is within about 50yds of them.

But they will bolt.

But if I am waking my recycling or trash can to the curb, I’ve walked within 10yds of deer and they just look at me like “what the hell is that?”

I am convinced what I need to do is take my trash can hunting with me. Just roll it around with a rifle in my other arm and I can sneak right up on them.

I did backstraps tonight and made quesadillas. Cooked them whole and then cut them up into 4 cheese quesadillas. So good.

Steve Rinella says the tags are easy to get every year. I may do it one year.

Butchered the doe I got last week and made a butterfly steak out of one of the cuts from the rear quarter. It was very tender and I thought it tasted as good as the backstrap steak I posted about a few weeks ago. I had 3 baked potatoes and some peas with it. Would've been a perfect meal but I forgot about putting sour cream on the potatoes.
