Fun Fact
The Coues Whitetail (properly pronounced "cows", but almost everyone pronounces it "coos") is one of 35 subspecies of white-tailed deer. This deer has developed such a reputation for being able to vanish from view in the smallest amount of cover that it is frequently referred to as the "Grey Ghost".
