Arizona's other deer, the Coues, is a subspecies of the
white-tailed deer. Coues deer are most common in Arizona's southeastern
mountains, but range up to the edge of the Mogollon Rim and into the
White Mountains. The Coues deer is much smaller than most of its
eastern cousins. Bucks stand just over 30 inches at the shoulder and
rarely weigh over 100 pounds. Does average 65 pounds.

On Monday morning, January 22, 2007 after 1.5 inches of snow, four
female Coues deer walked across our front drive looking for food.
Coues Deer on March 31, 2007
A herd of four Coues deer does were browsing in our front yard in the
middle of the day at 12:40 PM. They didn't seem to be afraid of
us. The three older ones looked like their coats were pretty
scruffy. One seemed to be limping a bit.
