The correct way is "COWS", but most people will tell you otherwise and tell you that you're wrong or look at you strange when you say it.

From the book "Fair Chase in North America" by Craig Boddington...."...It's named after U.S. Army Quartermaster Elliott Coues (Yes, it's properly pronounced "cows", as Lt. Coues pronounced his name, although "cooz" has become the most common pronunciation.)....

He's right. Like moo cows. But, I think it sounds funny and would rather say, "Cooochie."
