Sarah and Sam both drew the late Coues deer tag in one our favorite units. Sarah and Sam's dad Jeff decided to go with the AZ Ground Pounders. On the second day of the hunt Steel glassed a big buck. The Big Framed 3X4 worked his way around the corner of the ridge and didn't come back out for the day.
The next morning Steel refound the buck pushing a doe. Cash and Sarah put a stalk on the buck and got in range.

What an awesome first Coues Buck!!!!!!

Mike Coover's 630 Yard Spot and Stalk Bear Hunt with the AZ Ground Pounders

Mike Coover made the trip back up to hunt with the AZ Ground Pounders Outfitters again. In April of 2012 Coover killed a giant Tom on the first day of the hunt.

Waylon turned the custom Kenton Industries Turrett for 630 yards. The big bear stepped out into an opening an Coover let it rip. The bear was hit hard and rolled down the steep canyon.  Cash and Thumper stayed in the glasses and guided Waylon and Coover to where the bear was last seen. About 10 minutes before dark at the bottom of the canyon Waylon found the big bear. Congrats to Coover on the great shot and an awesome bear.


On Saturday Levi and our good buddy Hooter were glassing for the junior deer hunt when they glassed a good Tom. A call was made to Cash and Steel and they were trailing within two hours.
