These photos were taken in east texas. I am not aware of any high fences close by and I have never heard of free roaming axis in the area, but I was wondering if these deer could be axis or just white tail that kept their spots too late? Time and date are correct and this is a low fence property.

Those are axis. Several high fenced exotic ranches in deep East Texas. My cousin has one in Lufkin. Where abouts in east Tx?

What county you in? With all the flooding we had this fall I am sure some exotics escaped.

I would love to see a population of axis in east Texas. Don't know if they could survive in northeast Texas where I hunt though
