Anybody in the Montgomery County/ Montgomery area care to venture on how these got here? Have seen them for a couple years now, only these 2. They've been hitting the feeder behind the house nearly every night for a couple months.

They would have already been in my belly and down to the local sanitation waste plant if that were my yard!

I have considered but the county passed on ordinance on bow hunting in neighborhoods. My 2 acres plus the 3 lots next to me made 8 acres I could have.......now there's houses

Not sure where you are but there was a place at Tobacco Rd and Honea that had some exotics in a fence and one off 1097 that had a lot. May have gotten out. I'm sure there are others but those are the 2 I can think of off the top of my head.

That's it, crown oaks is off Honea and tobacco road is less than a mile from me as a crow flies. Thanks.

There is a young blackbuck making his appearances on game cameras on my Splendora lease. A few lease members have watched him mill about in person from the stand.

Best guess if Harvey nocked down a high fence somewhere and let him loose.

I filmed a black buck coming to the feeder several years back, in San Marcos. There are a bunch of axis deer out that way between San Marcos and Wimberly. Seen several from time to time, dead on the roadside, on the way to my parents' place.

I saw 4 axis doe cross the road once before and ran into SHNF on the west side of I-45 once outside of New Waverly. This was about 3 yrs ago! I guess you never know what is out there. Cool to see!

I live right there, yep there all around here from the floods. Lake creek kept washing out the high fence. Big bucks as well. Also, don't know if yall have seen them before but theres a pretty good size herd of Sitka running around this part of the country.

If you don't mind sending me one of the pictures, I'll tell you what I know about where he came from! 👍

I take that back, it wasn't a black buck. It was a melanistic buck that I have on film at the feeder. I was just refreshed of that name from a thread that was just posted.

He's not on my cameras - yet.
It was other members cameras I was referring to.


If I can get a picture of him sent to me I'll be sure to send it your way.

Come to think of it I need to warn one of my sons friends I'm taking up there for an MLK day hunt not to shoot it if he sees him. Not something I usually have to go over.

I sure wish they would show up in my woods.

A buddy of mine not far from my house has a 190-200" deer coming into his feeder! We have plenty of whitetail around here so think it's native and not a high fenced escapee.

I personally wouldn't mind if axis deer spread statewide. I love hunting those animals
