Axis Deer

The Axis deer unique bright reddish coat marked with white spots makes it one of the most beautiful of all deer species. A large buck can weigh up to 250 pounds with a beautiful six point antler configuration that is upwards of 30 inches or more. The antlers are not dropped in a specific season. Instead, the bucks shed their antlers on their birthdays with rut taking place from July to September. This makes the Axis the only deer where both hard-horned and velvet bucks exist at the same time. Cautious-natured Axis deer are elusive and can be a great challenge to even the experienced hunter. In addition, Axis meat is considered to be one of the most delicious wild game animals. 


Buck: $4,250 
Doe: $600
