Elk bugle tubes, how do you use the darn things?

My dad gave me a ELK Inc Royal Bugle elk call but I can't figure out how to use the damned thing. There are no downloadable instructions on their website and I can't find anything useful anywhere else. Can anybody point me in the right direction or offer some advice?

    Diaphram. I looked on youtube and I can't find anything that actually shows you how to use it.

    I guess they want you to buy this video to learn it. To me, it really doesn't look like a diaphram call, but looks like more like reeds. A diaphram usually either goes in the roof of your mouth, or external ones are like a piece of thin rubber that goes over the end of a mouthpiece. It looks like this call uses rubber pieces like a reed and a mouth piece that slides in or out to change the tone, from what I can see. The web site doesn't help much, and am surprised there wasn't instructions with the call? I would call them!
