Using "The Can" Properly

Postby USN_Sam1385 » Fri Aug 27, 2010 11:52 am

I know that one of the most popular deer calls in the woods is "The Can". The problem is, that many people have no idea what the proper way to use this call is. Generally people bring it into the woods, turn it all the way over a few times, and hope for the best.

Well, as Peter Fiduccia elaborates in this video, there are actually FIVE different kinds of blats that you can make with the can. By turning the can all the way over, and making the long extended BLAAAAHHHHHHH, you are actually making an "Alarm Blat". This blat tells all of the deer in the area to get the heck out of there.

The proper way to make the estrus blat is to do 3-5 short BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH, by turning the can over quickly. Check out the video, this might help quite a few people in the woods this fall:

No wonder the can has never worked for me. Been doing it wrong all along. [:@] Thanks for the insight!
My pursuit of a buck of a lifetime is much like the Chicago Cubs pursuit of a World Series...the season ends with a "wait til next year"

I just learned this last year after 3 years of using the call. No wonder I dont get a deer every year. I wonder what else I'm doing wrong?
