So I was at the lease turkey hunting last weekend. On the way out I run up on 10 axis bucks in a group. I've never seen any on our place before. 9 were in velvet and one (the largest) was in hard antler. I watched them graze for 30 minutes or so. Only had a shotgun
They were on a winter wheat patch. What are the chances of seeing them again? I was told they travel a lot.

Yes, they travel a lot. That was your one shot. But, just in case, what have we learned here? ALWAYS carry a rifle.

Did you at least get a turkey?

I hunted a place in Pipe Creek that had axis all around the 400 acres that I hunted. When they came onto our place we had a about two days to get them, then they moved on.

They'll be back, especially if you throw some alfalfa out

In addition to the alfalfa, try a cow elk call and "chirp" on it, especially if you hear a buck "roar".

We have axis cross our place every now and then, unfortunately never around my stand area, but they never seem to linger and are very skiddish.

Bow5 was right. One of our lease members saw them yesterday. He didn't get a shot.

Congrats on the turkey.

Axis have taught me the importance of a fast, well-placed shots. You usually don't get a second chance and your first one is really just a half chance.
