    Any of you that will be using this let me know how it works out for you this coming season. I am also using this and I have had it work in the past.

    Thanks,

    I have had great success with the Can, don't ever leave for the stand without it.

    I agree 100%, Ive probably had better success with a can than anything else. I just bought a new can from a smaller call company, its the best sounding can Ive ever heard, period. Louder, longer call, no air hole to cover, its a really bad ass call.

    The can works well, I flush it and things I don't want hanging around disappear. :confused:

    Ohhh THAT Can.

    I have one. I have used it in the past with little success. Might try it again if the time is right.

    I've had luck with little guys, but in my general areas I hunt, it seems the big boys are pretty call shy over the last several years. Now give me a distressed fawn bleat and I'll put does all over me, especially in GUN SEASON, but that's not what I'm in the woods for. :confused:

    I got it from a company I saw at one of the shows we went to, Grand C Calls. My own personal success has been mainly when Ive seen bucks, shooter bucks, nose to the ground on a mission, and grunt calls, snorts wheezes, etc dont even make them blink, one call from a bleat can and BAM! Stops them in their tracks and Im talking at least 75% of the time when they dont respond at all to grunt calls. I havent used this can yet during any hunting situation but when you hear this can against any other can its a no brainer. Like raceway said, I never head for a stand without one based on my own hunting experiences. I know you wont believe me but as soon as you hold the can in your hand youll know its a well built product. Primos cans do work, but have you ever had them studder or kind of skip when you flip them over, over not make the full baaaaaaah, just a quick bah and thats it? Well this can will never do that, and when your fully focused on watching deer you dont have to fumble to find the air hole to make it work. They make some kick ass turkey calls to.

    right time, right place as with any other calls. have had one for a couple of yrs, & never had it work. I've heard others say it works, so we'll try again this yr. Any suggestions on exactly when is a preferable time would be appreciated.

    I have a Can, I've also never had much faith in it since I've actually heard an estrous doe bleating and it sounds 100% NOTHING like a can call. LOL

    I think the can is just more of a general contact type bleat than it is an estrous call........not sure what it is but I've never heard a deer make that sound. Whatever it is too many people claim it works for me to completely dismiss it, it's just absolutely nothing like the doe I heard bleating to a buck in Nebraska a few years ago.

    That call to be completely honest sounded EXACTLY like the new MAD "Heat Bleat". No joke it is a dead ringer for that sound she was making.
    Also the Can and the way they instruct you to actually use the Heat Bleat didn't sound like that doe either.
    The can and the instruction for the Heat Bleat are much to "plaintiff" and drawn out sounding.

    The doe I had calling to a buck behind her was a very short duration call, maybe 1/4 of a second? It was just a high pitched single note "waaa"

    No dramatics, no "waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" LOL

    She also did it roughly a dozen times with about 5 seconds between each one while looking over her shoulder and taking a couple steps in between.
    Just one note at a time spread out over time.

    After the last time she did it the buck that was trailing her finally showed with a long drawn out grunt and then several more as he approached. As soon as she saw he was coming she stopped calling entirely.

    It was extremely cool to watch and listen to at a range of about 15 yards. I do remember looking at my can later thinking "What the hell is THIS supposed to be then?"
