Default Monster Axis down with new sponsor London Oaks

First of all, this is an OUTSTANDING bow hunting ranch and family. This was the first of many trips to come. The lodging, stands, vast variety of game was top notch. This place has a bunch of African animals, along with the normal exotics, WT and some hogs. A few of us TBH’ers threw together a last minute hunt. We brought a variety of trad and compound bows and a good selection of steaks, poppers, shrimp and everything else enough to feed an army. This trip was a great time to re-connect with my trad bow and get it squared away.

I ended up having to leave a day early which was extremely disappointing but I wanted to get 24hrs home with my kiddos before heading out of town for the rest of the week to work.

I killed the Axis buck.
DRT so far killed an axis doe and aoudad ewe.
Tradtiger hopefully got something after my departure.

Happy hunting to all! Season is almost here!

Ha ha I asked as a courtesy, but they absolutely do not want a photo of my kill as part of the story since it started as a trad thread. It's ok though, whatever makes those few happy.

Awesome, congrats.
Sounds like a great, bow-friendly ranch with two boxes on my hit list (axis and fallow). May have to take pops for a hunt next year.

He was just at 33.5inches. I tell you what, I knew he was ok, but when you get that close it was hard to judge...

I would love to, but trying to get somebody in my area to score it seems tough. I had that issue trying to find scorers before.
