Default Preferred meat from a day lease

I am looking to book a day lease with my new bow. I want to just get some experience shooting a live animal rather than a target - which animal is a lesser concern so I will probably just shoot female(s).

Of the exotics that are common to day leases, which offer the best meat both for size and quality?

Thanks.

Axis is my favorite, but a red deer is probably going to be a better value. It'll yield a lot more meat for a little bit more dinero.

I like the Axis meat the best but I have never had red deer so don't know about that

Axis and Oryx are 2 of my favorites. Nilgai runs a close 3rd.

Axis, blackbuck and fallow are all solid choices.

Blackbuck is good but not much of it. I love Axis and fallow though. Once killed a fallow after a two day spot and stalk and ended up making a fire by the gutpile and eating the inner loins. Best campfire meat I ever ate lol.
