Default Axis at night

Anyone ever hunted axis at night? Do they run or freeze when a light hits them? Or anyone have some good NV or thermal set ups? Farmer wants them thinned out as they are destroying the wheat but only coming in at night.

Yes GW is aware already and he is on board.

About the best way to hunt them. Sometimes they freeze and sometimes they run but definitely best way to hunt them.

Curious on this, as I have heard GW love the Axis excuse. Not saying your poaching Deer, but have heard the GW near Fredricksburg will burn you up for it.

Doesn't really matter what the GW thinks. If your not breaking the law, your not breaking the law. When hunting axis at night, what is he going to burn you up for?

Just common curtesy to let him know so he doesn’t drop his family dinner to come looking at a call for spotlighting from nieghbors.

Ive killed a few with a suppressed 22 at night. They are like any other animal. Some stand there and others will walk away or run. I just shot slickheads and did it at night so I could be effective with my time and effort.

I use my thermal riflescope. they can be kind of nervous. Before I bought this thermal scope, I used a green light, at about 75 yards away, I squeezed the trigger, dry fired (Yes I forgot to put a round in the chamber) and they all took off from the sound of a dryfire.. I was sick..

Night hunting Axis is completely legal, not that I have did it, but was told this many years ago by GW.

Yes sir it is completely legal, I think for any exotic. I think I would be extra “clean” before I went though. My customers told me the neighbors had called the sheriffs office on them for spot lighting and the GW showed up mad. This was in Sisterdale last year near the river.

Just curious what's he going to burn you up for? Following the law?

How is this different than spotlighting hogs? I don't call game warden when I'm hog hunting why should I call him when hunting axis?

OP good luck with the axis. Have equipment, will travel.

Green is my favorite for hogs. Light it up above them and slowly lower it on them and they don't notice.

Couple reasons-

1. DPS won't be called out from home if someone reports speeding or DWI, on duty Troopers will respond. GW will be called out from home- more than likely at 1 a.m. after working a 12 or 14 hour shift.

2. The Outdoor Annual says, "Non-protected nongame animals and fur-bearing animals may be hunted at night with the aid of an artificial light on private property. If hunting at night, please make a courtesy telephone call to your local game warden."

They're asking for a little courtesy- I'm willing to do that.

Born and raised in Comfort. Been hunting axis on the river and other places all around Kendall County since they showed up and never once have I seen a game warden. Most of my friends who are farmers and ranchers around here hunt them at night if the time calls for it. Never thought a thing about it. Most of these same folks never pull a gun out for a whitetail. Why would they!!! If I am going to spotlight on my lease down south for whatever reason, I call the game warden, but never once thought about it up here. Maybe I should, but I believe so many people hunt them at night I don't think many locals call about a gunshot at night.

Just like anything else, start the light up high and lower it onto them. Then boom.

Yes, it's always prudent to extend "common courtesy" and give notice to a government entity who can seriously impose on your liberty that you are about to engage in a legal endeavor.

I have some solar panel led white lights on my feeders, they are a bit skiddish at first. After that they don't seem to mind a bit. They show up great in the white light for my old eyes. Good luck.

I have a couple of green LED lights that run off AAA batteries. I duct tape them to the feeder and/or a T-post and turn them on in the evening when I get in the stand. They last for over 12 hours. The whole area is lighted up around and under the feeder. When they come in you don't even need a spot light, just put them in the crosshairs. Used it on axis, sika and of course hogs.

Well wanted to give a recap of how the hunt went. Williams4298 and his buddy joined me on the hunt as they live close to me. So we got settled in the blinds about 3pm for the eve hunt. Williams in one blind and me in another. Pulling in we seen axis so knew they were there. At the time little did we know how bad. At about 4:30 I had a group of 30 headed right for me. They feed at about 400 yds out and for whatever reason they turned and bolted. I threw some lead but no luck. About 5 another group came and settle in at around 300. Close enough. I shot and dropped one and missed the rest due to distance. So I let them know I was low on ammo lol. They seen a lot of whitetail and some axis but not on our wheat. So we joined back up at dark and went to the field I knew the axis Went.
On the way in the dang cows busted us and as we poked around the corner they were alarmed and spooked. So the marathon began. We walked to cut them off and got to the field and looked across the another field and there was more! So we made our to that field. When we got close enough we realized that there was not a lot of axis there was a TON! 2 different groups of 50+ strong. Each. So at 300’yards we waited and they started to move into woods so I green lighted them and the kiln began! I was hearing the famous BOOM-POPS. At the end of the rounds we recovered 5 Axis bucks. The night just turned into a cleaning night lol. We got all the axis loaded in the truck and headed to camp. It was a GREAT experience and some AWESOME set ups. Them boys could shoot. I was not aware of the sheer number of axis on the wheat but we estimated to have seen close to 200 and still did not check the 2 other fields. To top it off we went next morning and killed some ducks and I won’t mention the rare hooded mergansers we see while sleeping beauty rested from a cold! Lol good times bud and look forward to hunting with ya again. I do have pics and will have my trusty guru post em for me.
