Heard they dominate whitetail deer, is that just around the feeders or do they harass them in the field? They are nice to look at.

On the ranches I’ve hunted with both species, I’ve noticed the whitetail will leave when the axis bucks arrive. Don’t know that I have seen the axis actively harass whitetail, but assume that’s why the whitetail leave.

As the years go by, and if you keep up with the articles being written about them, the term "invasive" is being used more and more. They're starting to be occasionally compared to what the aoudad are doing to the re-introduction of the big horn sheep efforts out west. That ain't good.

Shoot. Them.

They are a PITA if there are Bucks on both sides of the fence.

my son killed a nice buck on my lease saturday evening about 28" in full velvet. He was not quite topped out yet and likely would have been a little over 30 in another couple weeks but I don't care if he had 12" horns after eating fresh axis hamburgers last night!

Don't get me wrong because I love whitetails but I don't mind seeing them expanding their range each year! Nothing to me is as tasty as axis deer. And that buck yielded 67 lbs of boned out meat.

I looked at several properties for sale in Kimble County. One agent commented that it might be possible in the near future for axis to out number whitetail in Kimble County.
