Axis Deer

Hunting the Ghost
the Forest (Axis Deer)

The Axis Deer known in Argentina as ghost of the forest is a deer that weighs an average of 135 pounds, its brown fur with lighter spots make it one of the most beautiful animals in the country. For many hunters, the Axis Deer is one of the most outstanding hunts since its great hearing, visual and stealth make it one of the most difficult animals to hunt.

At Rancho Salvaje Safari we have two hunting areas (free ranch) located where the largest populations of Axis Deer in Argentina are found.

The hunt begins at sunrise, with an experienced guide, following tracks and stalking the animal through the bushy mountains. Once the large male is located, being patient is one of the most important guidelines to reach less than 165 yards/150 meters away as they are normally found in herds and any sound or movement can alert females dating an alert to flee.
