I have seen both Axis and Blackbucks within a mile of our ranch but I've never see either on the property (game cam or live). I came across this pic and thought it was a little late to see a fawn with spots. Could this be a young axis doe?

Nah, just a WT fawn.

Be patient, the axis will show up. But you gotta be ready to shoot when you see one. They don't hang around like a WT.

Yeah, I figured it was a bit of wishful thinking. I know they will have a line of spots running across the lower body. Just wasn't sure if it was the same for younger axis.

I've actually seen (more than once) a group of blackbuck directly across the street from our entrance. The only high fenced portion of the property runs along that side of the ranch.

It's my understanding that blackbuck don't need a high fence; they'll only go under or through a hole in the fence.

Definitely not. Good fences make good neighbors. But, it's been known to happen. I have a few very neglected fences on my place. I'm in no hurry to fix them. "Hope springs eternal."

They are masters at getting through or under a fence. Even a good mesh fence usually won't hold them.

If that is a WT fawn it is certainly the largest fawn I have ever seen with spots?

That is what my BIL said but I think it's the angle of the camera making the fawn look bigger than it is.

I'll know for sure after this weekend when I sit that blind smile
