And DuckHammer finally sees the light. Cocobolo will still be available. Just not to the extent that some would like. Its going on the selective harvest list.

I have to admit things look to be going to crap, but I am not as much of an extremist as you.

He got them from his local Academy on sale. Made a big show of it.

Cocobolo and hedge are READILY available! You can get these woods stabilized with leprechaun farts cheaper than buying into the RNT hype. Buy some....send it in....save some $$$ :hammer:

No contest ring. No gimmicks. No compromising. It’s just pure, raw, balls-to-the-wall, don’t tell your mother, most powerful, non-nuclear duck calling machine on the planet.This call may not be for everyone. But if you can drive it, Game over......

I could have sworn you said Academy. Sorry for getting it wrong.

Found a pic of them on FB, definitely not Academy's price stickers on the boxes. Again my bad, must have been someone else's comment referring to Academy.

From what I understand the problem with RNT is having enough supply to fill their need. It's easy for some of the smaller guys to sit there and claim they have plenty. Their plenty wouldn't fill an order to one retailer for RNT. Also, RNT will still have coco, it just won't go out to big box stores. That's just what I heard.
