My name is Bryon Strom, and I am a Border Patrol Agent out of Tucson, Arizona. I took this Coues deer during the August 2008 Arizona Archery deer hunt. This buck is a true buck of a lifetime for me, because I have worked so hard to try to attain such a magnificent trophy. I shot him on opening day with my Mathews Outback; after trying for many years to shoot an Arizona Coues with my bow. My buck scored 120 and carries a lot of mass throughout. Both main beams measure approximately 18 inches.
Many of my fellow Agents that I work with out of Tucson are deer hunters, and any time off that we can get to hunt is greatly anticipated, and cherished.
Arizona Coues deer country is typically along the southwest international border with Mexico. All of my fellow agents are doing all they can to keep that area safe for families to enjoy while out hunting
