Forister Exotics Archery Axis Hunts
A great Axis Buck taken on a mid summer archery hunt. We hunted hard and endured the heat but this Great Axis Buck finally gave in to the need for Water and taken at 40 yards. After a quick tracking job we found him piled up and proceeded to take pictures and headed to the skinning rack. Congrats on a great summer time Axis Archery hunt!
Forister Exotics Axis Hunts
Axis hunting is often times hard enough to pull off with a rifle, When this hunter said lets get one with a bow I knew we had our work cut out for us. We put Bryan in a couple different stands the first couple of hunts knowing we had axis on camera feeding at these locations I knew it would be our best shot. After a couple different sits and seeing tons of different animals the axis where just not going to play our game. Mid morning last full day to hunt we decided to break out the rifle and try to safari style one. We had ran across this buck a couple times and just couldn’t get him to stand long enough to get a shot. After the third time of losing him I knew where he went I told Bryan its a long shot but grab your bow I think we can get behind him and with this wind we might be able to get close enough. We made our way to the cedar and with the rain earlier in the morning I could see tracks leading down to an opening where the fence cornered. I hoped this was where he was headed, I told Bryan to post up on the trees about 40 yards from the fence and I would swing wide and hopefully turn the buck back to him. The plan came together when this Trophy Axis broke into the clearing and stopped at 10 yards. Bryan stuck one through the boiler and the rest is history. Congrats Bryan on a great buck!
July Axis Buck Down
On a trip in July we had Dan braving the heat with his bow on a Trophy Axis Buck Hunt. We started the hunt off keying on brush where the Axis Deer have been traveling close to a water source. After seeing some nice Axis Bucks we decided to place a second stand closer to the travel route as the Axis Bucks kept skirting the set up. First set in the new stand and this Axis buck came in to 25 yards and Dan let him have it! Congrats Dan on a great axis with the bow.
