Do any of you have the Avery Floating Pit Bag. I was looking at on eat Cabellas and it looked pretty nice. It is really big though and I don't know if I need that much room, but I guess it would be nice to have more room than too little. Any pro's or con's about it. Thanks.

I don't know much about Avery's, but I bought a new one for this year. Out of all the blind bags and pit bags I checked out I picked Drakes blind bag. It is pretty awsome and a well thought out well planned with all kinds of nifty features a duck hunter needs. This thing has all kinds of internal pockets and clips, finally everything will have it's own place and I won't be digging in my bag for something on the bottom. The liner is 100 % waterproof so nothing can leak into the bag should I put it down in water. Check it out on thier web site, Ive never seen anything like it before.
I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was.

to the site and I couldnt agree more.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.
Know your target before you pull the trigger.

I've also got the Avery pit bag and think it's great. You can use it for anything. From training dogs to dove hunts to long hikes into duck hunting holes.

I've got the Avery floating pit bag and love it with one exception. You can fit so much stuff in it that I tend to carry the whole house with me! I wouldn't hesitate in getting one,you'll like it. Like you said, better to have too much room than not enough.

I was thinking of getting the same bag. Has anyone checked out the bags from cabelas? Is the avery or drake better than the cabelas bag? I live in Canada so I can't check them out.

I've got the Avery Pit bag, and wouldn't trade it fer nuttin'. My buddy has the Cabela's bag, and it looks to be a well made bag.

I was going to buy that bag until I saw it was made in china. I will just keep using my old made in the usa bag until I find another one made here. More stuff made in china= stronger china ecomomy which calls for more fuel and makes us pay higher prices in this country and loses us even more jobs.....

I have the Drake floating blind bag in the XXL and it is great. It holds everything i can ever need and then some. And it is completely waterproof on the inside (big) compartment. I have tested it thoroughly (by accident at the boat launch). Mack's has them for 49.99 for the large and 59.99 for the XXL.
If ya don't like being peppered, don't set up near my spread..!!!!!
