The "Can"
« on: August 27, 2008, 07:32:50 AM »
I've heard good things about Primos "The Can", so I bought myself one. Anyone here use one, and what tips have you got to share with the forum? Things like, time of year, time of day, how ofter do you use it, do you blind call with it, etc. Thanks for the input!

I will use mine blind once in a while but most of the time I only use it when I try to call a deer that I see. I haven't had a great deal of response to the call but it dose stop the deer.

I will use mine to call blind during the 3 rut phases. I have never called in a big buck but have had a few little ones respond to it over the years.

I have the can, the BIG can and the little can.  I use them during the rut, pre and post as well.  I will blind call with them and the buck growler as well. Just because something does not work doesn't mean it won't work.. How many times did you ask your girl friend, mistress, wife, before you got a yes.  There had to be something more you needed to do before you got that yes.. Maybe you needed to shower and splash some of that smelly stuff on...  to make it work right.....    --099-780 --099-780 --099-780

I HAVE HAD THE CAN TURN SEVERAL BUCKS AROUND AND BRING THEM IN TO ME, I ALWAYS HAVE ONE IN MY HUNTING PACK. THE PROBLEMS WITH MOST CALLS IS THE PEOPLE USING THEM. LESS IS BETTER MOST OF THE TIME. USE THEM AS NEEDED

 I dont know. I have stopped deer but never call them in with it. It seems like they know something is up when they hear another deer but dont see one.. But I do always have one on me.

I use mine often. It's easier then adjusting my other call. I grunt in sequences and mix the "can" call in between grunt. I've had a ton of success calling. I enjoy being able to trick the deer into getting close..

I bought my brother in law one for his birthday, and that rifle season he blind called his biggest buck to date in, and made a clean kill. This was real close to the peak of the rut, and he was hunting in the bedding area of several deer. I'm getting one before October for sure. I just can't make my mind up between the big or regular can.

I agree with clintt "less is better". I have the Primos big can and I use it and have also had success with it. I only turn it over about two or three, sometimes maybe four times then do nothing for 17 minutes then repeat the process watching and listening. Once I have a deer or even think I have one coming I quit calling untill he quits coming. If he quits coming I'll give him another call, maybe a single low grunt or something just to get him going again. I use the same timing and strategy for calling moose.

I am no expert but this has worked for me over the years and I do enjoy calling most game.

I have the "Can" and have killed two bucks because of it.

The first buck was a 6 pt. that I saw on the other side of a clear cut.  He was messing with some does that did not want anything to do with him however, when he heard the sound from the "Can" he made a bee line straight to the call.  I also mixed in a few grunt calls along with the "Can".  That seemed to put a little pep in his step, if you will.

The buck cam within 50 yds. of my stand and then it was see ya.

I was blind calling one morning and had a 3 pt. come running into the area looking for the deer making that sound.  Too late for him as he walked withing 30 yds. of my stand and death was waiting on him.

I believe that calls can be over used and do more harm than good.  The call has been used by every hunter in my club and then some.  I feel that the deer are so used to hearing the sound that they don't pay attention to it.  Just my opinion.
