Axis Deer Hunts in Texas
Axis Deer in Texas
The Axis deer originates from India and Nepal and was introduced to Texas nearly 100 years ago. They are also known as Chital or Spotted Deer and can weigh up to 250 pounds with trophy horns ranging from 28-36 inches. These animals can be hunted all year round but the peak season is from May-August. Axis deer prefer grass, thick cover in the cedars, and lightly brushed areas which are spread all across the ranch. Sisco D Ranch has worked hard for many years to sustain a healthy population of trophy axis deer for you to hunt, and our team of guides has years of experience that will allow them to put you on a trophy axis deer of a lifetime!
Texas Axis Hunting
How do you hunt Axis Deer?
Axis can be hunted year-round at Sisco D Ranch, however, we recommend hunting them between May and August, because that is when most of the bucks have hard antlers - meaning they are not in velvet and their antlers are fully grown out. Axis deer can be extremely challenging to hunt, as they are nervous animals by nature and one of the most "switched on" deer species in the world. However, the challenge of hunting a trophy axis buck makes the hunt that much more rewarding, plus, they are known to have some of the best-tasting venison, which is an added bonus!
We offer a variety of fully guided hunts depending on the hunter's preference & ability. Many hunters enjoy the excitement of a spot and stalk axis hunt, others prefer the traditional stationary hunt.
Spot & Stalk Axis Deer Hunts
- Spend time glassing the land for Axis Deer
- Stalk trophy bucks to get the most favorable shot
- Requires comfortable hiking boots & pants
Traditional Stationary Axis Deer Hunts
- Sit in a stand
- Wait for the deer to come to you
- Enjoy the relaxing time in the woods
- Shot scenarios are more controlled
We also offer Safari Style hunting where we drive around in a 6-seater Polaris Ranger looking for your trophy!
Axis Deer Meat
Is Axis Deer meat good?
As we mentioned, Axis Deer meat is widely regarded as some of the best tasting venison nature has to offer. This meat has a very low fat content making it generally healthier than other types of venison. Even though it has lower fat, it still maintains a high protein level. Axis venison is known to be extremely tender and has a mild game flavor. A trophy axis buck can weigh up to 250 pounds - that's a lot of delicious meat!
