Default My Axis Lease Season 2

Well the first year on my lease near Del Rio has come and gone. It was a season I will never forget. I ended up killing an Axis buck, two Axis does, and a turkey. My wife killed an Axis buck also.






Hereís the link from Season 1.

https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...ght=Axis+lease

This is a really special place and I canít wait to see what this year will have in store for us. Iíve been heavily feeding protein, as well as corn, rice bran, and Alfalfa.

Hereís a few recent pics.







We will be headed there this weekend. Mrs. Antlercollector will be trying to get her 2nd Axis bow kill, and possibly her 1st turkey. Wish her luck. I will update this thread when I can.

That is awesome. An axis lease is an excellent idea. I need to look for something like this. My son and I have been trying for years to kill one through drawn hunts TPWD and TYHP with no luck.

My lease mate put three bales of Alfalfa out for me today. It didnít take the Axis long to find it.

Hunt begins in about 24 hours!

We got in the blind at 3:15. She’s ready! A group of 7 bucks just showed up. All still in velvet. The feeder goes off at 5:00pm (I think )

I thought the shot was back, and told Wendy we needed to just go get the truck and give him some time. We started walking towards the truck and saw him piled up 38 yards from the blind! LDP’s to follow.
