Well, there have been numerous rumors and confirmations of the rumors for some time now. But my Cabela's Waterfowl Catalog showed up and there is NOTHING from Avery in it. Confirmed.
And to boot, it looks like Cabela's started making a couple of the more popular Avery Accessories as well, Marsh Seat, Slotted Decoy Bags, etc
I cannot think of a single piece of Avery gear that has ever lasted through an entire duck season without needing some type of repair, replacement or design upgrade.
I don't profess to know the details of situation, but I am hopeful that Cabela's finally went to them and said, "your gear is junk and we can't hardly stand to suffer the customer service nightmare it creates".
Cabela's doesn't always hit the mark 100% on quality but I am willing to try something other than Avery for a lot of this crap they call waterfowling gear.
I'm not up on prices, but it looks like maybe Avery has lowered their prices for a few things in other catalogs also?
