your gonna be happy with your coots. I really like the GHG coots, but not for almost $80 a doz.

Yep, i just got my Mack's catalog. $60 a doz. Not bad, i'll have to think it over. I will probably go with Flambo, i found a guy that will sell them for $20 a doz, if we buy a bunch. Going in with two other guys and probably going to get 20 doz. :eek:

I'll bet you get your's today Slow. Ours yesterday. I think you in particular will appreciate the graphics etc this year. Looks like a new concept for waterfowl advertising.

Rel was right. I had it in the mail box!

Ahhhh. It's like christmas in July!

Spot on in regards to the graphics. I think they are taking a different direction than cabelas and making it look more like magazine spreads.

It's a fun read!

Matt - good luck and I will be interested to know if the coots help out. I have the teal dekes all set and they helped last year for sure. Thought about the GHG coots this season but will hold off one more year.
