AZ Mule Deer and Coues Deer with Drake Schofield


Show Notes:

We’re talking mule deer and coues deer with guide Drake Schofield today. No matter what you’re hunting, you’re always looking for the perfect combination of:

  • Water
  • Cover
  • Food


What you don’t want to do is make the mistake of lumping these two deer together in your approach; they are very different. One example is simply, how does the behavior of mule deer affect the hunting?


If you’re hunting in a new area, what kind of things do you need to know? While hunting for mule deer in Colorado, Drake had to adapt his hunting strategy for the whole new environment. When he showed up, all he could see was headlights and orange all across the terrain. When a hunting area is overcrowded, what can you do to get out ahead or outthink the other hunters? We share some strategies for how you can work around a popular hunting spot.


Drake closes us out with an epic hunting story when he chased down and shot a massive 5 by 6 bull. If you’d like to experience something epic like his hunt, then let’s cross a hunt off your bucket list. Contact me to book a guided hunt in Arizona before my spots fill up.

Short Description:

Talking with different hunting guides gives a different insight into how they do things. While some parts of hunting are similar across the board, how a guide plans a hunt, stalks his prey, calls to the herd, and waits for the perfect opportunity can all give you ideas on how you can perfect your hunting technique too.
