Axis Deer Hunting

Axis Deer Hunting Details

At Texas Hunt Lodge, we pride ourselves on offering some of the most impressive Trophy Axis Bucks for hunters to pursue. Our hunting grounds in Kerr County are renowned for producing some of the largest Axis Deer in the world, and we maintain a year-round hunting schedule with no seasonal restrictions on Axis Deer hunts in Texas.

We have a proven track record of success in hunting Big Trophy Axis Deer, and our experienced guides will ensure that you have ample opportunities to spot and stalk these magnificent animals before taking your shot. Whether you prefer bow hunting, rifle hunting, black powder, handgun, or even Safari Style hunting, we tailor our approach to accommodate hunters of all ages, skill levels, and physical abilities.

The Trophy Axis Deer we hunt typically boast main beams in the impressive 30-32 inch range, with some rare specimens featuring 8-point Non-Typical racks or reaching lengths of 35 inches or more, earning them the designation of “Record Axis Deer.” These exceptional animals are exclusive to Kerr County, and we have proudly produced some of the largest Axis Deer in the world. Many of our trophy Axis Deer are expected to break records with organizations such as Trophy Game Records (TGR) and Safari Club International (SCI) this year.

For the best hunting experience, we recommend scheduling your Axis Deer hunt between May and the end of September, when 90% of our Big Axis Bucks are hard-horned and at their prime. This ensures optimal hunting conditions and the opportunity to harvest a truly exceptional Trophy Axis Deer.

The Axis Deer is considered to be the most beautiful of deer, with a bright reddish coat marked with rows of white spots.  Introduced to Texas in the 1930s from the Indian subcontinent, the Axis deer now resides in over 45 counties around Texas.  Its antlers, which it sheds annually, are usually three-pronged and curve in a lyre shape.  Antlers are most often in the 20″ range. Antlers in the 30″ range are considered excellent trophies, and if they reach 36″ they are exceptional Axis Trophy Deer. The world record occurred in India and is 41″.  Males can weigh up to 200 lbs and females around 120.

You will generally see Axis female deer traveling with their offspring in small herds, but occasionally there will be a heard of Axis male Deer wandering together.  This breed is usually out during the day, with their greatest activity just hours after dawn and before sunset.  Another feature of axis is that, being a tropical deer, they do not follow a seasonal rut. Axis Bucks can be found in hard horn and in velvet at the same time any time in the year, which also means that fawning can occur in any month.

There are no restrictions on hunting the Axis Deer in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.  The meat is also tasty and does not have the strong gamey flavor that venison most often has.  Axis meat is also 99.8% fat free – making it the leanest meat of any mammal, and in our expert opinion, the best venison in the world.
