Where was your hunt? Nice buck !
South Llano River State Park five miles south of Junction, Texas. It was an Whitetail Antlerless/Spike hunt but we could shoot any Axis, Sika, or Fallow deer we came across. I shot this and three slickheads on Wednesday. My BIL shot two axis does and two whitetail slickheads.

The hunt was a TPWD draw hunt. I had been putting in for this hunt for ten years and finally got drawn.

Rocks, cactus, oaks...........looks a lot like central Texas. Axis have been coming on strong of late near my place in west central Texas.

Congrats to Gman on some great table fare. No tags, no limit, no restrictions on axis here.

Congrats on the axis, nice tall antlers! Are you going to shoulder mount him?

I don't know yet. We caped him out but getting hold of a taxi the Friday before Christmas has been challenging.

Salt it down...and keep it cool....Hopefully, you can find someone on short notice to do it.

Also...take lots of pictures so the taxi can refer to them.

I'm just tickled that I took it with one shot from a 47 year old Marlin 336 30-30. Don't need a whiz-bang magnum (even though I have a 300 Wby).

We killed a few other deer also. These (including my buck) before 8AM on Wednesday. BIL got four and I got four, mixed WT slickheads and Axis.
