Axis deer, also known as Chital, feature white spots that brighten with age and large, six-point horns. A black stripe down their backs helps to distinguish Axis fawns from Whitetail fawns. Native to Asia, Axis were introduced to the United States in only Texas and the Hawaiian Islands. Primarily grazers, deciduous forest areas (both moist and dry) are their preferred habitat. Forests, combined with the adjoining dry grasslands of Texas, have helped the Axis to flourish. Their horns can reach more than 40 inches (the world record is 41 inches), but anything 30 inches and up is considered a great trophy. With Lonestar Premier Outdoors, you can hunt and harvest Axis yourself in the Texas Hill Country.
Axis venison is very delicious, lean and is often preferred over that of a Whitetail. It has even been called the best tasting game meat there is. It’s up to you to decide!
