    Gents I'll post some recent trail cam pics of some of the deer we've got soon as I get to my other computer. We have some truly impressive deer this year.

    These are a few weeks old and the deer are still growing but this will give an idea of how great this deer will be once the antlers come in all the way.

    That's interesting that they have a rut. In the southern hemisphere like sambar there is no defined rut for chital (axis). You can find them soft, hard or freshly cast at any time of year and the hinds pregnant, fresh young or weaning off likewise.

    Yessir it is kinda weird. Axis here can breed any time but they really tend to rut hard June-August. I do t have any of what we call “winter bucks” which are hard antlered in the winter. My deer breed over the summer and all shed out by mid October. Most Texas axis primarily rut in the summer but winter bucks are common. I’d like to release a few with some open does to get both as it never fails folks always want to hunt them during the traditional hunting season timeframe but all mine are always shed by then.
