I will be going on an Axis hunt in Hye Texas in early Feb. I was wondering how the free range Axis are out there?

Free Range? I am sure there are pockets of axis along the river ways in the area, but I have not heard of much in the area. I drive through areas near Hye quite frequently and I personally haven't seen any regularly until I get south of Lindendale road west of Blanco. Johnson City is a bit north for the herds - but axis are very nomadic, and are occasionally seen all over the state.

To the south of Hye, once you get around Kendalia - then you are in a free range hot area for axis - so I wouldn't be a bit surprised to learn that free range herds have migrated north to the Hye area.

More than likely a high fence hunt in that area. Not many free ranging axis around there. In fact, there's not too many big ranches in there anymore. Most are a couple hundred acres and smaller. Any bigger than that is the exception and not the rule.

Actually there are a good number of free range axis in the area and back towards Stonewall to Fredericksburg, along the Pedernales River. I know of several places around there, that have trapped and sold axis because of crop/field destruction. It depends on where you are out of Hye, good luck!

We have a place up the road a few miles off the Perdernales river. Axis tend to be like ghost. There are many in the area but do not pattern on movement. We'll go a month when we see them and can go a couple months without. In the last 10 years I can not say I have seen them at the feeders other than a single or double hanging at on the fringes of whitetail in the feeder area. The closer to the river the better. They'er there. Good luck on your hunt.
