Coues Head Soup – Bowhunting For Arizona’s Ghostliest Deer

Ray Seelbinder of Carbondale, Colorado has spent many years honing his bowhunting skills on the legendary Coues Whitetail, otherwise known as “the grey ghost”.

As you can see, perseverance does pay off.

Below is a photo of his 2017 Pope and Young buck.

Congratulations Ray, on taking a fine specimen of one of North America’s most challenging bow and arrow trophies.

Ray is also an accomplished bowyer. Did I mention that he carries a bow that he made himself?
