I’d never used the Native By Carlton elk calls before doing this review, but I must say, I’m impressed. While I’d say they aren’t quite as easy to use as the Phelps Game Calls (see that review here) or Rocky Mountain Game Calls, (see my review here) they sound phenomenal! I especially loved the high end bugle tones I could get from these elk calls. Whether you love the classic series or the new RIPIT frame from Native by Carlton, you’ll be able to find one you like. These calls will be with me this fall.
It’s just flat tough to go wrong with any Phelps Game Calls diaphragm elk call! I have yet to find one that I just don’t like.

One of the things I love the most about the Phelps Game Calls diaphragm elk calls is the nasally sound you can get from them. It is simply awesome! There’s a reason so many top elk calling competitors use these calls. They sound amazing!
How in the world do you choose a diaphragm elk call? There are a million on the market and Rocky Mountain Calls makes some great ones! Do they REALLY sound that different from each other?

Let’s see what makes these calls different.
