Neat pic Tom, i've been supposed to go hunt a cull axis on the Russel ranch. I've got a friend who does a bunch of work for them. Axis has been one of the critters I have never had a crack at. Shot a few Barbado/Mouflan crosses in Sonora a few years back with a bow, but that is about it for exotics, cept for the truckloads of hogs I have killed.
They are great meat and tanning the hide is neat with the spots. I think this guy is going to be gold level because his brow tines are so long. I hope he doesn't mess up his velvet on a tree or something. Most of them are hard antlered by august.
