Okay green screen,
I need you experts to offer your advice or maybe more importantly offer up your knowledge on any surefire ways to pull in Axis! Alfalfa, protein, sweet feed all work -what else is out there and how do you draw them in? Are you using stationary feeders, road feeders, troughs......etc...

Let the knowledge flow!

Guess not. So maybe this call attracts more hunters than deer?

There are some reports on here of axis calls working. I've read they use the Hoochie Mama, which is a squeeze call. There's also the Ezy Axis mouth call but some people seem to say they cant get a good sound out of it. Others say they have used it successfully. I haven't tried either.

I’ve had the ez axis buck roar/screamer call work on one occasion, but I do think it’s difficult to get a realistic sound out of it.
