South Texas Axis Deer Hunt
In 1932, axis deer were introduced to Texas. In 1988, self-sustaining herds were found in 27 counties, located in central and southern Texas. The deer are most populous on the Edwards Plateau, where the land is similar to that of India. Axis deer are one of Texas’ most popular free exotics and it’s estimated, by some, that there are as many as 1 million of them now living in Texas in free range conditions. These elusive deer are a challenge to hunt. Ted Gartner, of Garmin, is up for the challenge. Watch as he grabs a bow to go on an Axis hunt along a dry creek bed in South Texas.
