    While out hunting this afternoon (Brandon had already killed his beast) I have a 190"+/- Buck (typical size for Crawford County Bucks) come in on the back side of the tree I'm in. No way to get a shot and the buck is getting antsy.

    I think to myself, I've got the Buck Bomb here.

    Reach into my pack and get the can. Carefully take the lid off and depress the top. Give it a good 3 count and toss.

    All this stupid can did was psssssssssssssssssssss. No BOOM, just Psssssssssssssssss.

    I was hot! Paid dang near $10 for this thing and all I get is psssssssssssssss.

    Why on earth would you call this thing a Buck Bomb?

    if i wanted a psssssssssssss, I could've just relieved myself from the tree and probably felt better.

    Oh well, guess that's what I should expect for $10 bucks. Maybe next time I'll have a fire going and toss that baby in. bet we might get a boom then.

    This is just a heads up to anyone that hopes to salvage a kill with one of these.

    Have a great weekend. (by the way, I think the buck was the twin to Brandon's kill earlier to verify it's size:D)

    Uh, I dont think its supposed to make a loud boom like a flash bang, just supposed to release some sort of buck attractant, which is where you get the pssssss sound. Also, I think they are intended to be used "before" you have a deer in range, as a lure to get them there. I stick to Tinks 69 on key wicks, placed at random places to both help attract bucks, lure them to a shooting lane, and to help me with pre-determined distances for shooting. Sucks you missed out on a killer buck though, rut is still coming so maybe then. Chris
