A little update for you guys. I got myself a few different types of diaphragms and a tube from Rocky Mountain Game calls. After a few short practice sessions, Iím starting make some actual elk-like sounds. Corey Jacobsonís Contender seems to be the easiest to control. Still working on the high notes, but itís coming along. Watching Rocky Jacobsenís how-to videos on YouTube helped quite a bit too. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Good luck this season.

First time caller here too. 


I have a set of the Rocky Mountain diaphragms and the Bully Bull tube from them too.


It's kinda tough at first.  The first 2 days it was difficult to bugle.  I could make sounds but it was tiring!  Like when you get a pork chop between your teeth.  My mouth was worn out. 


After a week, I'm a LOT better.  Still need a LOT of practice but MUCH better and it is now very easy to bugle instead of wearing me out. 


I bought the Select-a-Bull from Rocky Mountain as insurance in case I couldn't get the diaphragms to work for me.  It is not nearly as good sounding as I am after just a week.  It is very easy to make sounds that kind of sound like an elk...but not a lot like an elk.  Some people may be able to use it...not me and right now I don't want to invest time in practicing with it since the diaphragms are working for me.


I will say that if you want to buy the Select-a-Bull from Rocky Mountain, you CAN use it with diaphragms and do not need to get a separate tube like the Bully Bull.  The mouthpiece with the built in diaphragm comes right off and you can use the Select-A-Bull just like any other tube.  No need to buy a $38 Bully Bull and a $50 Select-A-Bull.  Both tubes work with diaphragms.

Once you learn a diaphragm there is nothing better. Good Luck to you too this season! ;D
