How To Make An Elk Bugle Tube?

Slide the cut-off bat handle into the flex tube once you have the desired amount of flex extending from the bat. Mark where it stops and add a few inches. Cut bat handle at the spot and fit into flex tube as your mouth piece. Before cutting out the mouthpiece hole with the tape, I sometimes sand it as smooth as I can. Tape the mouthpiece into the flex tube after installation. Try some sounds through your tube now that it has essentially been constructed.

How should I pick a bugle tube?

As you can expect, the bugle tube’s length and diameter have an impact on the sound it creates. The models that were evaluated produced tones that were deeper the larger the diameter. The sound of the tube becomes hollower as it becomes longer. I discovered that I could hear the “human” sound, if you will, more when the tube was shorter. The deeper, more guttural sound was created more when the tube was longer and larger.

The mouthpiece of some elk bugle tubes (but not all of the ones we examined here) is narrower, which makes it harder to perform a “lip bawl.” Personally, I’ve discovered that I like the aforementioned models’ wider mouthpieces better. Simply put, I find them to be more comfortable, but not everyone may feel the same way.

What kind of bugle tube is used by born and raised?

The entire Born and Raised Call Co. crew is thrilled to announce that “The BOMB” Bugle Tube has finally been released after two years of testing, development, and countless changes.

The “BOMB” is intended to be the thinnest, most powerful, and most effective tube available.

This bugle will give you the advantage you’ve been hoping for each and every season thanks to its incredibly distinctive baffle and sound chamber.


– An incredibly forgiving embellished mouthpiece that pairs with our Soundbite and Two-Tone cow/calf calls for more volume and tonal variations.

– “Bomb” bass chamber for the greatest low end sounds that reverberate deeper into those draws, gorges, and forested flats.

– More back pressure for the finest Lip Bawls, Chuckles, Grunts, and Barks available.

– A concave exhaust chamber placed after the “Bomb” bass chamber for the best grunts possible.

When do I start bugling my elk?

Early September through October are when elk often start to bugle. As early as the end of August and as late as the beginning of November, they may be heard. After dusk and just before dawn is when you should be listening for elk. Elk will also bleat at night.

What kind of elk call is most effective?

Over the years, I’ve had a number of these sounds and have used them to bring in large herds of elk. In those circumstances where you don’t want to shout out too loudly and startle the herd, this short-range variant is ideal. Depending on how you blow or handle the reed with your mouth, you can eventually sound like several elk with practice. Any skill level can use this cow elk call because it is simple.

For elk hunting, what calls do I need?

Bull elk utilize this call to gauge the temperature of the mountain. It’s a two- or three-note non-aggressive bugle with no real beginning or end. It is the simplest bugle to make with a diaphragm and bugle tube combination because there is no chuckle involved.

Use this call to find elk and determine where a bull is on the mountain. Don’t attempt to finish the bull using the call. Move closer before making another call if the bull is far away.

Tip: Some bulls will stand still for a while while continuously issuing location bugles. When hunting pressured public land, use this to your advantage. Do not call me back. Use the setting to your advantage if a bull starts talking to himself.

Why do elk cows meow?

When they are calm or in motion, bulls, cows, and calves chirp and meow to communicate. They bark and grunt (typically to attract the attention of another elk) (as a warning signal)
