Axis Deer

Axis Deer Hunting

Axis Deer also known as the Chital were native to India subcontinent.  Both males & females have a beautiful bright reddish coat marked with rows of white spots that persist throughout life (similar to a whitetail fawn). The males can weigh up to 250 lbs. and adult females weigh anywhere from 75 to 100 lbs.  Axis tend to be very cautious by nature.  Both sexes emit alarm calls sounding much like a high-pitch bark. Males often bellow loudly during breeding season. The meat is excellent and lacks the strong game flavor sometimes associated with venison. The hunting method commonly used on an axis hunt is safari style and spot and stalk.  Depending on weather and habitat conditions at the time of your hunt, you may be hunting from a blind and feeder.

Axis can be hunted year round at West Kerr Ranch due to our vast numbers, however May through September is going to have the largest number of hard horn bucks to choose from.  You will need a hunting license. Non-resident hunters can purchase a 5 day special hunting license.
