Here’s a quick video from Saturday morning.



https://youtu.be/4rJxAhFbcWw

https://youtu.be/k_aBE-4kk4Q

These last two are from Sunday morning of the buck I ultimately decided to shoot. No kill shot video. Sorry. I just was recording with my phone.



Thanks everyone. I was very excited to get my first buck on the ground.

The landowner measured the main beam on the one I killed at 32 1/4Ē. Thats the buck in the 2nd and 3rd video. The buck in the 1st video is probably 30+, it not as big bodied

Thanks everyone. I’m not gonna lie, it was hot! I probably won’t be hunting again until October

I’ve got plenty of fresh Axis meat to enjoy in the meantime.

It’s near Brackettville. I actually forgot to update this thread. My wife (Wendy) killed her first ever Axis also. Here is the link to her hunt.

https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...d.php?t=786106


She did it hunting my herself. I was very proud of her. I have since shot another Axis doe. I plan to go again in February to fill feeders, check cameras, and maybe take another doe.

Hey AC, looks like you are covered with Axis. Is there a supporting herd of trophy whitetail bucks? I'm on a new lease with Axis everywhere, but I only saw a few bucks over 4.5. We have plenty of WT does and young bucks, just not sure if the mature WT buck are there or left the area.
