Axis Deer Hunting Texas Style


The Axis deer, also known as the chital deer, is a species of deer that originated in the Indian subcontinent. It was first observed by a German naturalist in 1777 and has since been brought to parts of America such as Texas. This beautiful spotted deer is moderate in size with males reaching about 35 inches and females reaching about 28 inches to the shoulder. Males weigh between 66-165 lb while females are lighter at just 55-99 lb. However, some males grow to be as large as 216-243 lb.

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.

Breathtaking trophy big game seems to be everywhere! 777 Ranch is a prime Nugent family annual destination and Jeff Rann is my Spirit BloodBrother.

I toured the 777 this weekend and was extremely impressed at the job these guys have done there. The animals are fantastic with so many different species and such large groups it is truly amazing. It was like going back in time to Africa when animals were abundant. With the future of so many endangered species looking very bleak we should all be proud to have facilities like the 777 that will help preserve animal species for humans to enjoy well into the future. Thank you 777 for the wonderful animals that you guys raise insuring species survival for so many that are about to become extinct in their native homelands. Job well done!

Went to the 777 this weekend. Had an incredible time. We had Steven Rann as our guide. He was fantastic! Though the doves were not moving, he made the experience so enjoyable that we could have cared less about no dove. He took us around and showed us all of the incredible species that the 777 offers. The whole staffed catered to anything we need. They took such great care of use. We will definitely be back to chase some big game with Steven!
