Archery Equipment Review:Primos Buck Roar Deer Call
Review: Primos Buck Roar Deer Call
The Primos Buck Roar Deer Call was evaluated during a
two-week whitetail-hunting trip to Virginia, Ohio, and Illinois with weather
conditions that ranged from clear and sunny to torrential downpours. We were in the woods from sunrise to sunset
and really put our equipment to the test.
The weather conditions were at times, intense, and for a period of 4
days we were hunting in steady rain.
Additionally, I have used this call on many whitetail hunts over the
past few hunting seasons; effectively calling in both bucks and does with ease.

The Buck Roar Deer Call is
designed as a multi-purpose deer call with an easily adjustable reed that
ranges from the deep sound of a trophy buck to the high pitched tone of a
young, yearling doe. Additionally, this
call has a tube mounted above the primary grunt tube that is designed for use
as a snort-wheeze call, an elastic strap that can be used to mount the call on
the hunters arm, making it virtually hands free, and a small compassÖjust in
The design was well thought out and was kept as simple as
possible, without sacrificing functionality or performance. It can be easily disassembled for care and
cleaning in a matter of seconds and then put back together just as fast. Likewise, if the hunter needs to change the
adjustment on the reed from a mature buck to a doe it can be done both quickly
Iím not sure how important the aesthetics
of a grunt call is, but this call has a sleek design and is deep green and
black in color. Itís actually a
good-looking call and not too big and bulky, considering the multiple functions
Fit and Finish:
As mentioned above, this call is not very large and is a well-built, durable
piece of gear. It fits well in your
hands and can easily be stored in the pocket of a safety vest or even a cargo
pocket on the leg of a scent loc suit.
The deep green and black plastic finish adds to the sleek design. The
elastic armband, although a great concept, seems to be more trouble than it is
truly worth. Since the is compact, I
prefer to keep the call in the pocket of my Hunters Safety System vest. I found that having the call strapped to my
arm was actually a distraction. However,
the elastic armband did fit snugly on my arm as advertised.
Ease of Use:
This Primos Buck Roar call comes with a mini-DVD that provides
instructions on how to use the grunt call and the snort-wheeze call, and after
a few quick lessons this call is extremely easy to use. Although the armband does secure the call to
the hunters arm, using the call in this hands free position is not as easy as
it may initially appear. I found it much
easier to just pull the call out of my pocket and use it like any other call.
Iíve used many grunt calls over the years and
the Buck Roar is truly the most realistic call I have ever used, hands
down! The call transitions through
multiple tones, from the deep, rich tone of a trophy buck to the higher pitch tone
of a young doe bleat; they can all be done effectively on this call. The call does not resonate a plastic sound
like some calls tend to do. The sounds
that resonate from the sound chamber are amazingly rich and realistic.
I mentioned how easy this call can be disassembled and
reassembled for cleaning purposes. This
feature came in handy quite often during the testing period. Because of the many days of heavy rains and
bad weather we experienced during testing, this call was put through the
paces. Dirt and water frequently entered
the call and at no point did this call stop performing; a problem that I have
experienced in the past with many other top deer calls.
Design and Function: Excellent!
A well thought out design resulted in a compact, durable, and extremely
functional deer call.
calls sleek design and deep green and black components are pleasing to the
eye. This truly is an aesthetically
superior deer call.
Fit and Finish: The flat, deep green and black colors make
this call blend into your surroundings.
The armband does its job and holds the call snugly in place, if you
choose to utilize this feature.
Ease of Use: As a
call, it can be quickly adjusted for multiple call tones or for care and
cleaning. Not overly complex at
all. My only complaint would be the
slight difficulty using the call/armband feature.
Performance: Unmatched by competitors! This call flat out performs, and performs
well! It is the most realistic call I
have ever used and will always be in my pocket while in the whitetail woods!
Overall, I will not hesitate to recommend this call to
fellow friends and hunters. It is an
extremely easy to use call, that produce rich, realistic tones, and is the most
durable and reliable call Iíve ever used.
Top-notch product! If it werenít for the armband, I would rate this a
Dewclaw Archery Supplies carries many more game calls.
