Default First Axis we have seen on lease

looks like this should be a pretty good stand. does anyone have any ideas if this lone axis may attract more to our lease. it would be mighty tasty but would serve better alive if it would attract more of them. That sow has probably already dropped her piglets unfortunately. thanks

I remember hunting one place and seeing the very first axis shot, after that it was normal to see them.

I didn't realize you had pocupines in that area.

Wow, I've never seen a porcupine in this area. I've seen evidence of beavers (which surprised the heck out of me) but never porcupines!

I dont think that second picture is an axis - I would bet it is a spotted fawn (whitetail) DO NOT SHOOT SPOTTED FAWNS - Public service announcement over

now that i have looked at it more and compared it to pictures i kind of agree but some of the guys on the lease swear it is an axis and they are experienced hunters and have hunted them before. guess we will just have to see if the spots go away. how common is it for a fawn to still have such distinct spots this late in the year?

We have a late drop in Alabama and I have seen spotted fawns all the way in to January before. Usually they are gone by November.
