The Axis deer is commonly known as the most beautiful deer in the world. Available to hunt year-round and native to India, they are chestnut brown with white spots and a large white throat patch. The bucks grow long antlers, usually with three points per side. A large male will weigh 250 pounds, while a female will weigh around 100 pounds. Being from a tropical climate with no noticeable winters, Axis deer evolved to grow antlers and breed during any month of the year. Most axis bucks are in their hard antlers during the summer.
