We recommend a 4-day/3-night trip minimum if you’re planning on going on an exotic hunt at 777 Ranch. This is to ensure you get the full hunting experience and get an opportunity to take down the exotic animal you want to hunt.
Axis Deer Trophy Fee
As is often the case with exotic animal hunts, you’ll have to pay a flat trophy fee when you hunt an axis Deer at 777 Ranch. This trophy fee is $3,000 for a buck and $500 for a doe. Keep in mind that the trophy fee doesn’t include the cost of booking a guide and paying for the animal to be processed after the hunt. It’s also important to note that a wounded animal is charged the same as a kill, so your trophy fee is due upon shooting the deer.
Axis Deer Processing

If you need any of these services, you’ll have to pay additional fees to get them.
