Axis deer, also known as Chital & Spotted Deer, is native to India, Nepal & Sri Lanka. With males weighing as much as 250 pounds and females weighing up to 145 pounds, this exotic species is one of our most sought after trophy harvests. Axis deer prefer light brush, grass, and dense thickets of post oaks, making them an ideal fit for our Florida Hunting Preserve. It is not unusual to see large groups of axis roaming across our property. The fact that axis deer breed year round makes it not uncommon to find males hard antlered in all seasons. Most males are in hard antlers March-December, although bucks with exceptional antlers can be found throughout the year.
