Seen my first Axis Deer a couple weeks ago aboard Ft. Hood, Tx. I heard there was a small herd aboard the fort, but they're pretty difficult to catch up with. I was in my HMMWV enroute to our next position which parallels a creek. Not sure why but I looked down a ravine and on the other side of the creek was an Axis deer, hanging by the creek. Pretty animals, would love to hunt one some day. Anyone else have any close encounters or hunt this species?
