The Axis deer is a moderately large spotted deer with three tines on each antler.  Axis deer are native to India, where they are known as “Chital”, and are one of the favourite preys for the Tiger.  Axis deer hunts were introduced to Texas in the 1930’s and are now the most numerous and widespread introduced deer in Texas. Axis deer are about 40 inches at the shoulder and adult males can weight up to 250 pounds. They have reddish-brown coats with white spots along their sides. Trophy males can easily exceed 30 inches. They shed their antlers at different times of the year, making them a great summer time hunt.


Impala is a medium sized antelope found through much of Africa.  They are approximately the size of our whitetail deer.  One of the fun things about them is that they are active during the middle of the day, providing excellent hunting opportunities when the deer are less likely to be moving.
