I think it was Thursday I bleated in a Llama and today 3 house cats came running toward me when they heard it.

I rattled in 3 turkeys (hens). I haven't had success with the can, so far. It isn't for lack of trying, I think its for the lack of seeing deer. I've heard that sometimes it works and others it don't. In my area I haven't had much response to any calling. I'm beginning to think I don't know what I'm doing, and maybe I don't!

I've seen the can and other calls work on t.v., so it must be true...right??? HA!!! Good luck

YES it does work. I have called several books to the can in the past week. I mean they came in on a dead run and freaked out when they seent he Decoy. I thought it was a bunch of BS until I seenit work.

I used a grunt tube last year to bag a 7 pointer. No scent, just 3 soft bleats, and he came over a rise right at me.
This was early december during the rut in GA.

I used the Can this fall for the first time, and I had great luck with it. I would combine it with short grunts and do little series of about 5 bleats, in sets of three every so often (not really sure of how long in between). I had many deer come running in it seemed like right after I called. Two good bucks that were heading the opposite direction completely turned around and headed to me after I bleated at them once or twice. I think it is a very advantageous method for huntin'.

the can isint working for me. i tried it on a deer and it ran away faster than anything. im putting mine on the shelf with my deer snort call and all the other magic weapons. the grunt call will be next. maybe if there is alot of buck competition they may come but not in my state of new jersey. we have alot of deer but the ratio is out of wack like most of the country. if i lived in texas or something they might work better but im done bringing the extra crap with me out to my stands[:@]
