Also picked up a great matching set literally in the road a hundred yards from the blind I was hunting. 33x34 with an 11 inch caudle. Only had night pictures of him and none when he was still in velvet. He probably went hard horned in February to drop in July.

Is it better to hunt axis at a protein feeder or water hole this time of the year?
