The San Carlos Apache Reservation has become a premier place to hunt Coues Deer in all of the Southwest. Coues Deer, a small-sized subspecies of the eastern white-tailed deer, are considered a very challenging animal to hunt because they are so well camouflaged in their surroundings. 2 Hunting seasons are available for Non-members, the first in November and the second a rut hunt in January. Tribal members can hunt coues deer during the Rifle season in October or later in the year during the Archery only December hunt. San Carlos has 5 units open to Non-members for Coues hunts with each unit annually producing bucks scoring more than 120 inches.
