Trophy Room Spotlight: Braden Shields’ 9-pt Axis
Fourteen year old, Braden Shields, was luck enough to harvest this amazing non-typical axis buck in Kimble County, Texas.
Kimble County is located in the heart of the exotic hunting mecca, known as the “Hill Country” of Texas. There are thought to be more exotics per acre in this area of the Lonestar State, than any other place on earth! Braden’s buck is beyond a unique trophy. Though velvet antlered bucks are commonly harvested, taking a 9-POINT axis buck in velvet is anything but common! Most axis have 6 typical points growing up, back and out above the deer’s head. Every so often, you will see 1 or 2 extra points growing just above the browtines, but 3 extra points is very rare. This was Braden’s first ever axis…that’s quite a start, Braden! Congrats on a super exotic trophy!

If you have a unique exotic trophy to share, email it to us at: email@example.com or post it in the AAE Forum.
You can find cool exotic pics just about anywhere. We found this unique pic on a phone background app available through Palm. It is an axis buck in velvet with small finches perched on the tines of his antlers. Whether it’s an actual picture or not, we thought we’d share because it is a very interesting image.
Our theory: a taxidermied axis ran into a creative mind with some Photoshop experience. What do you think?
