Default First axis buck.

Got to go hunting this weekend on a buddies family ranch. I have never shot an axis buck before and first one I see I shoot it. Passed him first time he came out not knowing really how big he was. Rough score 162 36" main beams, 29" wide. Biggest shot on there ranch in 13yrs of owning it. Dropped off at taxidermist on way home from junction.

Thank y'all, bad thing is I have never hunted them before and passed on him the first time I seen him. Then decided if he walked back out I would shoot him. Well he stepped back out.

Past junction about 15-20 miles, then turned south of 10 about 15 or so miles.
Had a blast out there, would like to find a lease out there now.
