You swatted plenty of them. You just sunk the one you hit dead center of your pellet cone. With the BB coming in three feet off the deck, the outside deeks always take a few stray pellets. Any lower and the second line of birds catche pellets too. I wouldn't have sold you any of the ones I gave away. I went through them all the night before our hunt and switched all the good ones out to the sets you were picking up.
I gave the really bad ones away to the guys I grew up with and still hunt with. They sank most of them. I got a message last week that was mainly swearing about how tough it was patching up the really bad decoys. I guess Glenn and Tim got together to patch them up and realized they had been done wrong on the freebies.
Best practical joke I have pulled in a long time.
