Axis Deer in Argentina

This deer of Hindu origin is also known as "chital" and was introduced into our country in the year 1945, inside the Buenos Aires Province, to which he adapted successfully and quickly, and was later on distributed among different provinces of our country. Its fur is dun reddish with white spots distributed in lines all over the body, its abdomen and the interior of the legs are white. The stag is almost one meter tall, its length reaches one meter and a half from the head to the tail, its antlers that change every year without a precise date have fewer points than other deers, reaching a total development of almost one meter from their beginning (roseta) up to the end and generally show six points in total, although if the diet is really good they can develop more.
In Argentina it is found in the plains or Pampean hills near rivers or streams, with scrublands which give it protection from the cold and shelter. It generally moves at night although sometimes it is found in activity during the day.
During the rut it also emits a calling sound to the hinds although this is less powerful than the one of the red stag. The period of sexual activity is not totally defined and varies according to the regions that the different herds inhabit; it generally begins at the end of the summer in the Southern Hemisphere (February) and lasts up to the beginning of the autumn (April), but it is always subject to changes originated in the weather. The hinds give birth to one baby deer or exceptionally two. The hunt of this animal is done chasing it during the hours of the early morning, and it may extend through out the whole day up to the night. The hunter walks among the strips of land or rivers trying to get sight of the herd, which is why the binoculars are really useful. Once it's been located, the strategy of approach is devised until a distance is reached from where the shooting can be safely done; this very often requires the hunter to drag so that he can hunt the piece.
Shooting distance average: 150 mts. Adequate calibers: .308 Winchester, .270 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Win Mag., 7 mm Rem Mag.
