Thanks for the kind words fellas! I photographed this bull late one evening and when I found him the next morning he was dead. Looked like a puncture wound to his brisket must have got an organ. The rut is tough on bulls.

Bev,

The boys and I spent this past weekend on a ranch on a meat hunt (8 does) and two of us saw our first double drop-tine 10 (+2) and it was neat as could be. Less than a hundred yards away. No camera...

No photo regrets here...I just don't feel like reading about scope bashing or how some people upstairs are both infectious disease experts and constitutional scholars who have all the answers to the world's problems, but can't figure out how to post pictures on this site.

Yes, and missed my snare. Pushed that one stick out of the way I had used as blocking.

Bev,

Two outstanding snaps and a mighty fine stag.

Being cheap, a short range meat hunter and hoglet perforator, I've not taken a trophy Axis. Shot a few as targets of opportunity (as I love the meat) on one of the 5 Texas ranches I"ve hunted during the last 22 years.

Anwho, I hunted the 3,000 acre Rex Kelly ranch from 2002 until 2008. The owner must have been kin to Dr. Doolittle. He did not hunt or shoot. He lived up front in a stone house with no heat or A/C. He had at least 20 dogs and cats, and named all his animals. I'd ride around with him up front where there was no hunting to 'feed" his critters. We'd go a ways, and he would pull over and stop. He kept a 5 gallon bucket in the seat of his old blue Ford pickup between he and I. He'd scoop up a coffee can full of corn and bang it against the side of the driver's door. Within a couple minutes there would be hogs, white-tail Sika, Axis, and Fallow deer. He had names for a bunch. Hartford was a monster Axis stag. Gorgeous and Jimmy Dean were the resident bad-azz boars. He had a juvie black buck he called Junior. One year we painted "NO" in green fluorescent paint on the side of Gorgeous, hoping he would not get shot wandering toward the back of the ranch.

I liked Tom and so I built a pen up front near his house and put out feeders so he could watch his Axis deer of a morning or evening...........


Not the best quality photos, but you get the picture.......

Over the course of time, I ended up taking several. Couple stags and a doe.

That's my kind of place GW. Thanks for sharing the memories sir.

I've been hunting and photographing Axis on various ranches throughout the Texas hill country for over thirty years. Axis are my favorite venison to eat and I think they are a beautiful animal as well. It's been at least 20 years or longer since I consumed any WT deer meat and I don't miss it at all. Good Times buddy.

Photo regrets??

Not here

This is one of the few remaining places that you can't easily upload a photo directly to the post in seconds so I won't bother with a photo of any kind here
