What would you say is the best attractant (food/seed) to attract axis deer to your deer blind location? I'll be hunting near Kerrville in an area with axis deer as well as whitetail. I have heard alfalfa or maybe a pellet type? What do they really like?

We have always had the best luck with alfalfa. They will eat the corn and protein too, but the alfalfa keeps them hanging around our feeders the best.

Peanut hay, if you can find it, works well on Axis and WT.

Chaffhaye and Horse/Mule feed always worked great for us but they'll hammer corn as well.

I really don't think anything draws them in. They seem to just move around. They seem to like to spend more time around rivers and wetter areas. Then sometimes you see them in areas you have never seen them before. But if you do you, you better decide if you want to take one or not. Because you may not see them again. Again this is just an opinion and you can take it as that.
