Yes, I've done it before but it took several weeks for the kitten to come around. I placed the canned food near the hole where the wild kittens/cats were running in and out of the barn. It sort of look like a shed to me. but anyways I was able to grab one kitten after she approached near where the canned food was at, sure enough I did got bitten and clawed
Just have to keep petting, feeding, holding, etc. The whole processes may take several weeks or months before they become used to you.
I used to own a wild kitten, she turned out fine after several weeks. it was worth it!
