The buck roar, by the respected primos hunting calls, is a piece that every deer hunter should have in their pack. The buck roar is a combo call that does it all. It features an instructional DVD, a wrist strap for easy access in the stand, a compass and a lanyard ring. The rubber body provides a good feel and the sound resonating chamber produces a pure grunt that I argue cannot be topped.
You can perform three main sounds with this call, the grunt, challenge wheeze, and the buck roar. The buck roar is an aggressive prolonged grunt that is generated when a buck is on a hot doe, or he is warning other bucks in the area to stay away from a certain doe. The challenge wheeze can be affective to bring in other mature bucks that believe the property is their stomping grounds as well.
As far as the in field evaluation, I found that the call works, but only with the right timing. The grunt is pure and will not fail if you grunt correctly. However the roar only works when bucks are starting to get rutty. I would advise to only use the roar during the rut phases because a deer will catch on if the timing is way off. The wheeze must be used carefully. It is extremely effective at bringing in mature deer from long distances, in particular when they are marking territory. This is a sturdy call, it works well in the cold, and the wristband is convenient. Overall the Primos Buck Roar will be worth your money.
