had a guy in my office yesterday, said he had free roaming axis with some that would tape out at 45-47 inches in Sonora.

Thoughts?

According to SCI:

"Longest antlers of record are 44 inches (111.8) (Rowland Ward, about 1877)."

Just quoting, as I am certainly not an Axis Deer expert.


You did what?

My guess is nope...
However there are a lot of big animals taken every year that are never reported or recorded in the record books.

Make him an offer to shoot everyone he has at some absurd price with the caveat that they're free if they don't tape at least 42". I mean 42" shouldn't be a problem if he has 47"s. I bet the excuses start rolling before the hunt even happens

If a person can even guarantee an Axis 40" or more you can just about name your price.

Many have claimed 40" axis but have yet to show one with a tape against it.

He showed me a pic of one.. I would have said close to 38" but that was about it. Since he was a customer looking to buy I didn't argue with him....

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
