Default First Success on Blanco County Lease! Axis Video

As I mentioned previously, I got on what is really my first deer lease ever for the upcoming season, joining Casey, Les and Stins on 743 beautiful acres in Blanco County.

I made a slight detour on my way home from our Burleson office last week and squeezed in a couple of quick hunts for Axis deer. I managed to arrow my first ever axis deer - a good sized doe - last Tuesday afternoon, and managed to capture it on video.

It's been awhile since I uploaded a video to my YouTube channel, but I finally got a little time to throw something together! It'll go "public" next week, but here's a little sneak peak for TBH!

http://youtu.be/JlSvwTmn_1Y
We have some decent bucks roaming around in a few different herds, so hopefully I'll have an opportunity to get back out there and hunt before Casey scares them all off!

You crazy with that shot angle, Bossman

Glad you smacked a big ol' nanny. Any polka dot with a bow is a good one.

She'll eat

Yeah, what Adam said. Any polka dot with a bow is a challenge. You're right, they don't stay long when they come in. But what a great way to break in a new bow! Congrats!

Well done. it's a shame that the axis like that area where all the creek drainages are. One of us is bound to get a hernia dragging one out of Garcia.

Congratulations on the kill.

I know you recovered her, but that quartering to angle is really risky on any deer, but especially axis!

I got REALLY lucky on the recovery. I roughly measured the track that I made (inside red line) down the creek, along the fence line, along adjacent fence line, and then back up hill toward clearing where I blindly stumbled upon her. The straight line distance was 417 yards…and not anywhere close to where she actually ran after I lost sight of her.

I agree. I almost compounded it by missing my spot. The JakHammer did a lot of internal damage.

LOL! Juevos can definitely lead to a lapse in judgement, so maybe you're right. I don't think I've ever taken a quartering to shot before, and I'm unlikely to do so again, even though it ultimately worked out.

With what you're shooting I wouldn't hesitate with that shot. You didn't hit exactly where you'd hoped, but it was still a kill shot. I am a little surprised at the penetration though. I'd have expected that to blow right through. Did it at least poke out the other side?

What is your new arrow weight?

i once shot an axis around that same spot never found it... after some research I found that the vitals sit way tighter and forward. A typical broadside lung shot would be a gutshot on them spotted variety.

Nice video thx for sharing

I'm old and fat. You are working too hard to drag a deer. I use a ten foot length of mule tape. Tie it around the neck and then take a half hitch over the nose. That way the nose isn't catching on every bush you pass, and you aren't pulling against the direction that the hair grows. Keeping the hair fuzzed up and working against you generates more drag than you need to have to overcome.

Thumbs up Nice axis

Congrats on your first, here's to many more. Tracking blind can be frustrating with them. Had a couple we got lucky on and found with little to no blood. Watch herd patterns. Try and get to know their movements, especially if they are running. Lucky for us, we are a small enough place the trails they take are like roadmaps for them. I've seen them separate then get back together on the same trails. Got a couple corner's they have to stop and jump a cross fence. Found 2 or three within feet from there, both lung shots, only little pink blood right before they dropped dead. They are tough animals too, had a few we never recovered. 1 I know was shot multiple times with a rifle, unfortunately none were lethal, had her jump a fence with a broken leg 10 yards in front of me. Couldn't believe it . Like said above, they can be very frustrating to find.

Great idea! It was an unplanned, midweek layover trip after driving to FW to get a new company truck. I brought my bow just in case I got a chance to either shoot at CCR or stop by the lease, but otherwise I showed up without an ice chest or even a suitable knife (I had unloaded my normal truck carry gear from the old truck before I left.) I had a Skeletool and some cord in my pack, but they were inside the Krivoman blind when I found her and I didn’t want to make an extra trip back to get them. LOL!

I had to scramble to town to buy an ice chest and skinning knife from Lowes grocery store before they closed before I could even begin to skin, gut and quarter!
