This is not a SPAM attempt for AVERY

From my prior experience with postings & Pm's to Avery. Avery likes to get as much feedback as they can from active waterfowlers. :thumbsup:

I was impressed with them. If any of you need the correct hyper link. send me a PM?

I encourage all of you to provide all of the waterfowling manufactures with feedback.

VAH2OFOWLER22,

I am not a Pro-Staffer, nor do I work for Avery. When ever I have posted or emailed Avery, they have responded quickly. In the past, I have had an Pro-Staffer called me to chat, because Avery cared for about their customer.

My prior posting on here, was to encourage my fellow Duck Hunting Chat members to give manufactures some feedback.

VAH2OFOWLER22,
Avery has a couple prostaffers in VA. The one that called me lives in VA, Super nice guy.

Hey, How big is your Tracker boat? I was thinking about buying one, but I think I am going with the 23' SeaArk.

I dont have one for my boat yet. We hunted out of ducks n deers boat. Its hard to find one for this big of boat without paying an arm and a leg. I have plans to build one next year using tube steel. Should be nice. I can afford a new decoy trailer and a boat blind all in one year. ( ANYONE GOT A 10-12 FT TRAILER FOR SALE)

vah20fowler,
tried the do it yourself blind last year, so much area to cover, I ended up breaking the tubing several times from running across open water, rough ride etc. Even with it folded down, I'm looking at taking the plunge for the beavertail boat blind, I have spent a small fortune so far in equiping the boat for fishing and hunting, why stop now.

Oustanding job on your season so far.... keep the pictures coming. Mike

Doubley's on Rt. 10 in Chester has the best prices on 6X12 enclosed with a 6' ceiling.


Hey wait a minute, is that a :spam: ?

:toofunny: :toofunny:

Oh never mind, just send me a PM. I purchased a 6X12 with a 7' ceiling two months ago. Believe me, I checked out every dealer within a 160 miles of Richmond. If you want to know? I still have the quotes from all of the dealers.

I have said it once I will say it 1000 times a store bought blind looks like a store bought blind , build a fix blind on the boat and enjoy the dang thing for the life of the boat . Come fishing season take it off and cover it up from the sun , come fall put it back on and add natural cover . Weight is your friend , it makes the boat lower in the water and helps to break ice .

I'm looking at taking the plunge for the beavertail boat blind,


NOW YA TALKEN SON!

Anyone of the flip-over blinds will work well. Mudbuddy or Beavertail

I have used 5 different blinds on my Lowe 1960. The blind frame has to be 16' long to properly cover my boat. (Avery, Mudbuddy, Wiley's, Permanent & folding Grass) I sold the folding grass blind at the VAWFA Swap Meet for $25.
