Mine was delivered today. Much to my wife’s chagrin, I am practicing tonight. Hoping for the best next week.

Yep. Sounds familiar.

I tried it in one spot. No luck. But that was the pasture where the landowner has all his goats right now, and they're all having babies. He's been riding his 4wheeler through them 2 or 3 times a day, and we didn't see any axis in that part of the ranch.

I've tried mine over a couple of weekends with no results. Definitely need some practice. Also, these are free range axis. Not sure where they are when I call but they are definitely around at night or the times that I'm not out. Also, considered that maybe they hear the call and run the other direction

I've been waiting to hear axis close by to see if it will lure them out. But they have left our area again for the time being.

I, too, am disappointed. I am an excellent elk caller. I know how to use calls. I have tried this call every-which-way, but can only get it to sound like an axis about 1-out-of-every-20 tries, and then it has to be very soft. It's a very thin line to go from axis-resonance to the sound of a dying pig. The diaphragm is not going to last very long, either.

The call is almost identical to the "snuff can" turkey calls that have been around for years. I have a couple and will admit that I am not the greatest caller on one of them for turkeys. I hunt with Ronnie "Cuz" Strickland from Mossy Oak from time to time and he can really talk turkey on one of these calls. He can also get an amazing amount of volume out of one and blows so hard that he tears the latex up several times a day.
Adios,
Gary

I let my EZ axis call ride around in a pocket of my backpack this past deer season with few other calls and the latex looks used and abused now.

I think your best bet is a water trough, timed protein feeder and a salt block.

They love the salt.





And the protein.





Both these stands have water, corn feeders and a salt block. They come by for the salt all hours of the day.

Has anyone successfully called one in with the EZY-AXIS?

How long did it take you to "get good"? Am definitely getting one soon and hopefully can be sounding good by June/July. My GF is going to be sick of that sound well before June/July, I'm sure.

Also, are you rattling at the same time? Can I just rattle with WT shed antlers, or do I need to use Axis sheds?

Interesting info on the Axis call. Sounds really cool to hunt them like you would elk. I cannot think of a more fun way to hunt. Saw this other video Eric put on Youtube.
