Fireman bud has a lease with these guys free ranging. He vouched for me with the land owner and set up this hunt. Glad I didn't let either of them down.

For those that are gonna ask, 250 yards. 7mm-08, 162 gr. A-Max through the heart. He did run, but only 20 yards. I made a video of the blood trail, more like multiple puddles of blood. If you can zoom on the second pic, you can see the puddles. I never have skinned one all the way down to the nose, but hopefully I did my taxidermist right. I've heard nothing but high praise on the quality of meat. With a regular steel tape measure, we came up with 32" to 33" main beam length. I didn't care, I can now say I have harvested an Axis buck. God is good!

Nice axis. And yes, the meat is some of the best you can eat.

Good buck Jason, and yes that is what I expect from a 7mm-08.

Lets just say stay on their good side, you will want more Axis after you get a taste of it

Thank you everyone. I already told my bud, I may get spoiled. Still go on my annual whitetail doe harvest every year in Ballinger, might just give those whitetail away to family. Then I'll come back to his place and harvest an Axis doe. Sure think I need a soft tanned complete Axis hide. They sure are pretty!

A big congrats from here Fireman! That looks like a dandy to my untrained eyeballs. I, like you, just recently killed my first Axis buck, not near as big as yours. I can attest to the extremely good eats you'll be taking part of....it is among the best wild game I have ever tasted, anywhere. You're in for a treat. It was also very interesting to me how soft the hide is.

Nice shootin' too.....love that 7-08.
