1. Axis Deer
The first three are from India. The Auodad is from North Africa. I gave in last year and took my Axis with a rifle on the last day. After just under 100hrs in stands and blinds and two trips trying to get one with a bow, I felt like the monkey on my back needed a bullet not a knife! I ended up with one way better than most folks ever get with a rifle. And I do mean EVER! 126 yard shot with a rifle offhand was a pretty tough shot. That I ended up with the biggest Axis on the ranch I was hunting was just a blessing!
Yep, these animals will go nocturnal. Even inside a high fence these animals figure out how to avoid hunters.
Some animals aren't as tough to harvest with a bow as others. That's a fact. They are still fun.
If you can fail hunting there that's probably an honest place Bill. I didn't get an Oryx last year and I wanted one. I had a couple, almost close enough and almost clear shot opportunities but even carrying a rifle I couldn't make it happen. That's why I'm going back to Texas. And that's why I really enjoy hunting certain exotics. It's fun, and it is real hunting.
In short, to get one of those top four with a bow (especially a good one) is no small task. My hat's off to you if you succeed.
