the can calls are great and the "true talker "is another great call that can make a variety of calls.

Got to agree with Joel those are two of my favorite calls. I also tried the Drury buck growl last year and found it was a good sound tube and didnt have any problems with it freezing up.

I got the can and a variety of grunt tubes. I found the primos buck growl works the best for me hands down.

I'm trying the bowhunter plus this year.
They have had some problems with the attachment pins, but I like the system

im a big fan of the buckgrowl. it has good sound and volume and i love the wrist strap. i also tote a set of antlers and a rattling bag. why both? im not sure but i know as soon as i leave one behind ill want it. i bleat with my voice its really not that hard. the can style calls are easy to use and almost foolproof. i also have an old knight and hale e-z grunter ive had for about 15 years that still works and serves as my backup. i also carry my turkey diaphram calls since we can shoot turkeys while bowhunting with a 5.00 tag. came close a few times.

the only two calls other than my yote call ill take out.(for shooting at a yote or brining one in site if i see one.) are the true talker and the buck growl.. they both work really well for me

Snort-wheeze has become one of my favorites, any one can do it with or without a call, and it really gets big mature bucks fired up.  couple it with a decoy and it's on.

Thanks for the info. I've never used calls before so would the buck growl be easy to use? you probably have to practice some though. Do yall use the cans and the buck growl together or what do yall use together?

I use the primos can and true the way Don't get the can wet....mine did and it ruined it...they replaced it for me though and now I keep it in a zip-loc bag when using it....any how I also use a turkey call when deer the deer and turkey feed together and it will bring deer in relaxed.....
