Sounds like you have become pretty handy with a diaphragm call. Over the past couple of years I have had good luck using a bugle primarily for locating elk. Once I have located a bull I will switch over to cow calls. Now and again you have that stubborn old bull that you have to get down and dirty with that bugle, but most of the time your high pitched cow calls will do the trick. Hopefully this will remedy your dilemma with your encounters with other hunters.
