The Rogue bugle tube is designed for use with diaphragm calls. With the patented V.E.T.T. (Volume Enhanced Tone Technology) the compact size still creates the volume of a full-size tube. The coil spring increases volume, stabilizes higher notes and maintain higher pitches.


The Matriarch is an open reed call with a wooden barrel that produces the nasally estrus sounds and can imitate the estrus scream. It has a wide reed and band for proper lip placement.
