Axis Deer Are Distinctive
Native to India, axis deer are an attractive trophy. The trophy axis is usually 6+ years old, weighs 160 to 210 pounds with 6 points and 28+ inch beams. Axis deer are larger than the standard
whitetail deer and unlike the whitetail, they are herd animals, and behave more like an elk.
The North American Deer Farmers Association (NADeFA®) reports that free ranging axis deer populations exist in the United States, Hawaii, and Australia. Axis deer were introduced into Texas in 1932 as a game animal. Texas has by far the largest population of axis deer in the U.S.
Axis deer, also known as the chital (as they are known in India) and the spotted deer, have one of the most beautiful hides, golden brown with white spots and a black line down its spine. The male axis deer are the only ones with antlers which are three-pronged and are nearly 3.3 ft long which they shed every year and grow new ones. Males, called bucks, weigh in at close to two hundred pounds. Females, called does, weigh just over one hundred pounds.
