Default baiting axis

I will be going on an axis hunt in June and was looking for some tips on what works best to draw in axis? It will be a 2.5 day hunt on a low fence ranch.

I have heard alfalfa works pretty well. Anything else?

I killed my best one when he was eating out of a protein feeder. I've also heard they love alfalfa

Water is always good in the summer.

Corn and protein work too. It's more a function of being in the right place at the right time than anything else (at least on our place). They're fairly nomadic here.

We have them across the river 1/2 to one mile away. Cant get them to us. We have tried alfalfa and protein of course. But our place isn't thick with trees for cover, does that matter? (All oaks) also the neighbors have mostly cedar tree and have them. EERrrrrrr

Chaffaye works great for me. Only problem is they eat it all night. I can't stay up past the 10:00 news anymore. Good luck, it's tough to find sometimes. Sweet feed works too, everything likes that.

the main key is plan on sitting all day. you can't kill one if you are not in the stand. they are very wierd animals and you cannot pattern them. may see them one day at 10 and never see them again that week. good luck

I have axis on our place and it is true it is a hit or miss. The males travel weird and sometimes wont come for a couple days but the does travel with the whitetail. I have them on record rack protein feed. Figured out to put my feeder at 7:00 am so they can stop coming overnight
