Cinco Canyon Ranch is home to large herds of axis deer which have thrived in the South Texas Hill Country for many years. With our males weighing as much as 250 pounds and females weighing up to 145 pounds, this is one of the strongest herds on our ranch. The large herds make for an excellent hunt along with the exclusive ranch accommodations.
These magnificent animals prefer a light brush, grass, and dense thickets of post oaks. It is not unusual to see groups of 30-40 axis roaming across the varied ranch terrain. This makes for an action-packed hunt on our 1,000-acre ranch. The fact that axis breed year around makes it not unusual to find males hard antlered in all seasons. Most males are in hard antlers March-December, although bucks with exceptional antlers can be found throughout the year.
