Buzz Tyre of Jacksonville, Florida has collected countless whitetails in his over 50 years of hunting. The former president of the North Florida Chapter of Safari Club International even has four Boone & Crockett whitetail bucks to his credit.
But in all those decades of avid deer hunting, Buzz had never tried for mule deer, and had never seen a Coues deer.
That changed on Jan. 9, 2009 when he and Florida friends John and Brad Evans and Mitchell Montgomery flew into Hermosillo, Mexico, about 400 miles south of the Arizona border. They were hunting with outfitter Ubaldo Lopez in the state of Sonora on 120,000 acres of prime desert deer habitat.
