Axis Deer have an orange coat with white spots; similar to a whitetail fawn. Mature bucks and does have white patches on their throat. Bucks have antlers with an average of 6 points per antler. Also known as Spotted Deer, Chital, or Cheetal, Axis Deer offer a year-round hunting opportunity at Rancho Madroño. Learn more about Axis deer.


Hunt for trophy Axis deer for beams up to 32 inches. Our hunting packages include a stay in our of our high-end lodges, three meals daily, professional guide, and field dressing and cold storage of game. We specialize in trophy Axis deer hunts.

Originally from India and Sri Lanka, these beautiful deer have long antlers. The deer were introduced in 1932 and Axis deer hunting in Texas began.

The antlers sweep upward and backward and have three tines off one long main beam. Occasionally there is a 4th brow tine. Axis males can be in hard horn any time of the year. Join us for a Texas Axis hunt. Call for hard horn buck availability. We also offer guided doe hunts as an add-on hunt.


All hunting packages are designed as fair chase hunts in the Texas Hill Country. The terrain is hilly and wooded with many areas to hunt in blinds or on foot, providing a challenge to hunters to hone their hunting skills with the beautiful surroundings of a very private ranch with live water creeks, bluffs, plateaus, hills, and a secluded, creek valley.

Located near San Antonio, our hunting ranch offers upscale lodging and meals.
