Santa Cruz Ranch has a good population of axis deer. They have a pretty reddish coat with white spots, a black line on their back and white underbelly and neck. Axis bucks shed their antlers on their own time, yearly. We have summer and winter bucks available in hard horn. They typically have 3 points on each side. However, growing more than just a 3x3 (six points) isn't uncommon.
Axis males can weigh up to 250 pounds. Axis venison is known to be one of the best tasting. It has a very low percentage of fat almost making it fat free.
Axis deer can be hunted year round on the ranch and included with a combination of other exotic game hunts.
We offer all inclusive Axis Deer Hunts on the Ranch.
