just like any other call out there, there's a right time and place when to use them. I've used them a little, as with grunt tubes, and rattle sticks. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. If your hunting an open field, I think their less effective, because the deer are looking for a visual. In thick timber, they may work a little better due to they can't see as well, but, thats just my opionion. Experts on here probably will have a completely differant view.

Very easy way to send out estrus bleats. Wouldn't hunt close to, or during the rut without The Original Can. Head on over to primos.com to see the difference of their cans.

Have to agree, even the description on their site says something about hunting where the bucks have to come into the woods and search for the doe...backs up what you said about them not being as effective in open fields.

Although last year, we called a 5x5 right up the fire-break (prolly 40 feet or so wide) to our makeshift blind.

I'm not saying it can't happen DB. It's just that if you did that on 20 deer the same exact way, you might call in 1, and that one may be just curious. but hey, if it did, then it worked right! Personally I don't use them that much, I prefer to be silent out there, but don't get me wrong, I've tried, but my efferts seem unrewarded, I don't know, maybe it's the way I sound, But it doesn't hurt to try I guess.

I use it a bit, worst that's happened is: Nothing.

I did however call in one buck like he was on a string. He was going to pass at 75 yards, one flip of the can and he headed my way. Everytime he changed directions (cause he couldn't see what he wanted to see), I flipped the can again and he came towards me. Ended up shooting him at 10 yards.

Last season, I turned a good buck by using the "Original". He was headed out of bow range when I used the can on him (not easy when juggling a bow). He stopped, wheeled around and came right in. It was a good day.
