Lots of time on the mountain and behind the glasses finally pays off. My brother, Cody Nelson, with his Arizona Whitetail Deer. This is not your average Coues Deer.
The double main beam on the right side is very unique. Our quick tailgate tape session came out to around 103 inches which is considered significant, certainly above average. Non-typical to say the least.
Cody and his best friend Cody Goff near the end of the carry out. Long day, incredibly rugged terrain and another good story but we aren’t done yet.
My brother Cody (Wilderness Athlete Brand Manager), sent me a text early this morning saying that he had just shot a big buck but he and Goff could use a little help getting it out. At the time I was 30 miles away perched on a knob glassing for them since they have tags and I don’t. When I got to where they were it was obvious this was going to be another one of those nasty Arizona carry outs. And it was to be sure but everybody got out safe and sound although dirty, sweaty, worn out and scratched up.
Here are the basics. Arizona early Whitetail hunt (Coues Deer), Unit 22, Remmington 700 30-06, Hornady Superformance, Swarovski Z5 with Outdoorsmans Ballistic Turret, 368 yards at an angle, 103 inches prelim.
Now it’s Goffs turn to fill his tag.
