How much do they really compete with cattle for grazing? I see this said on the Google, but there are axis in and around small towns I know of out west of San Antonio where there ain't much cattle grazing to begin with. I can't see 'em flourishing in town either seeing how there is little grass there either. So do they really eat a lot more forage than they say and compete less with the cattle for grazing?

Cows weigh a lot compared to an Axis deer. Obviously, a cow will consume more grass. If there is over population of Axis deer in that region I guess it's possible to have grass shortages.

I know this is a late reply. But Axis are not a native species to Texas. They probably don't compete with cattle as much for food sources as they do with the whitetail deer population. Axis are bigger and can be more aggressive than the whitetail deer.

the best thing about axis deer is Djiuk's can sell you venison sausage
(which makes sense, because axis deer are thick around Castroville
Camp Wood, Vance, Barksdale - you may see feral herds of black buck, Thompson's gazelles, and even camels.
