The Bawean deer, "Axis kuhlii", also known as Kuhl's hog deer or Bawean hog deer, is a species of deer found only in the island of Bawean in Indonesia.

A typical height for males of 60–70cm has been reported. Males have three-tined antlers.

Unlike the hog deer ("Axis porcinus") of the Asian mainland, their fawns are not spotted at birth.

The scientific name commemorates the German zoologist Heinrich Kuhl.

Due to ongoing habitat lost, small population size and limited range, the Bawean deer is evaluated as endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is listed on Appendix I of CITES. It has few natural enemies except for birds of prey and large snakes such as pythons.
