i was wondering if anyone knows if the Chirp will work from inside an ammo can ?

It won't while enclosed in steel. It will work once the can is opened (if it's under the lid or whatever). Metal may cause problems (even a metal sign post).

 

A good way to set up a Chirp is several feet up in a thick holly or evergreen shrub, near the trail where you want to receive the signals. You may secure it with a wrap of velcro around the trunk or a branch, cover with camo cloth. So when you need to change the battery, it you unwrap the velcro. You should not place it where someone will easily see it -- the whole point is it can be hidden in a spot where people will not want to hunt.
