Elk season is right around the corner…do you know what elk diaphragm is the best choice for you?

Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls prides itself for offering elk hunters with three different choices of diaphragm frame widths and three different palate or dome heights. The size and shape of your palate (roof of your mouth) will vary slightly from person to person.

Most people can use our medium width frame with medium height dome. The GTP frame is used to build these calls. The most popular calls in the GTP series are: Raging Bull, Black Magic, Mellow Momma, Reaper and Tines Up.

People with a narrow palate, typically also have a higher palate. For those people, we have the TST/Elk101 frame. It is our narrowest frame with our tallest dome. The most popular calls in the TST/Elk101 series are: All-Star, Champ, Rock Star and Contender.

Specialty Diaphragms

While most people into the GTP or TST categories, not everyone does. RMHC has four specialty diaphragms for people with unique palate shapes and sizes.

The Mini Master uses the TST frame, but has a large portion of the tape cut away. This call tends to fit youth the best and people that have a bad gag reflex.

The Remedy uses the original Palate Plate design. The plate is raised slightly, but is flat…there is not arch. This call fits people that have a very shallow palate.

The Wild Fury has a small frame with a slight dome. This call was designed with Kristy Titus to fit women callers.

Herd Master uses our widest frame and the tallest dome. This call fits people with a large mouth/palate.

Studies show that around 10% of the general public have latex allergies to some degree. For those people, using a standard diaphragm is out of the question. RMHC has created a non-latex diaphragm call, Da Bull, that all hunters can use. The medium width frame and medium height dome will fit the majority of callers and is made of non-latex materials.

We hope that this information is helpful in selecting your elk diaphragm calls this year.

Best of luck in Elk Country!
