WhiteTailBuck

White-Tailed Deer

White-tailed deer are a member of the North American deer family and can be found from southern Canada to South America. In the heat of summer they typically inhabit fields and meadows using clumps of broad-leaved and coniferous forests for shade. During the winter they generally keep to forests, preferring coniferous stands that provide shelter from the harsh elements. They use speed and agility to outrun predators, sprinting up to 30 miles per hour and leaping as high as 10 feet and as far as 30 feet in a single bound.

They use speed and agility to outrun predators, sprinting up to 30 miles per hour and leaping as high as 10 feet and as far as 30 feet in a single bound. Full-grown, white-tailed deer can range in size from 6-7.75 feet in length, and from 110-300 lbs. with an average lifespan of 6-14 years.

Axis Deer

Axis Deer are one of the most pristine of all the exotic deer, with a beautiful six by six horn configuration towering up to 40 inches tall. Axis Deer are originally from Europe and were imported to North American in the 1800’s and were first introduced to Texas in 1932, and are a must-have for any hunter’s trophy room. Their unique spotted coat makes them one of the most beautiful of all the deer species, and their meat is also considered by many to be the most tender and flavorful venison.

Bucks shed their horns on their birthday with rut taking place from July until September. Axis can weigh in excess of 250 lbs and stand more than 50 in tall. Axis deer are quick and elusive and can be a great challenge to the experienced hunter.

FallowBuck

Fallow Deer

The Fallow Deer is a medium-sized animal characterized by palmate antlers. The fallow deer, found wild in western Asia and southern Europe, is about 3 ft high at the shoulders with a spotted white coat in the summer. Fallow deer can come in a variety of colors included Spotted Fallow, White Fallow, Chocolate Fallow, and Brown Fallow – making this an exciting breed to hunt. The bucks and does live apart until the mating season, which is usually in October; in June the does usually bear one fawn, but occasionally two or three.

The antlers of these deer are very wide and they can easily measure 20 inches in width. It takes about three years for the males to develop them in this size. Full grown males weigh from 130 to 200 pounds. Full grown females weight from 60 to 90 pounds. They are extremely fast animals thanks to their powerful, yet short legs.

Blackbuck Antelope

Black Buck Antelope are one of the most popular exotic animals with black beveled horns and a body color ranging from black to golden brown. This beautiful native of India grows is one of the smaller exotic breeds, but grows blacker on his back in winter and also as he grows older. The females and young are blonde on the back and also have the white stomachs and legs.  The Black Buck reproduces well in West Texas and can be maintained behind a standard height sheep and goat fence.

Male horns “corkscrew” upward in a V-shape with 1-4 tight spirals (depending on age and genetic potential). Females usually lack horns, although some may have horns. Female horns are often thinner, smoother, and may grow in non-typical patterns. Males typically weigh from 70 – 100 lbs while females weigh slightly less.

WildTurkey

Wild Turkey

The eyes and ears of a turkey make it one of the toughest of all Texas game animals. Their vision is the keenest among all Texas game animals. They are especially astute at pinpointing movement and can hone in on noises from a mile away.A hundred years ago, turkeys almost disappeared from Texas due to unregulated hunting and loss of habitat. Now, thanks to hunter and landowner support, bag limits and a restocking program, they are making a steady comeback.

Turkeys now inhabit 223 of the 254 counties in Texas. You can see them roam at many Texas State Parks. One of the most substantial and oldest winter turkey roosts is at South Llano River State Park near Junction.
