GHG, letting customers down is their mantra
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

Found as in saw them online or found as in purchased?

I know multiple people who saw the advertising, placed orders, were strung along for months before their orders were eventually cancelled by Cabelas since the decoys never showed up.


We purchased the 6 boxes we could find. My buddy has them in hand can't wait to pick mine up

Should have played the lottery the day you found them :)

Maybe an Avery Pro Staffer such as Rhodes can provide the back story on why they were advertised but really were not available this year?

I cheated. I found some old foam filled plastics pintails for free on CL and sent them to Body Language Decoys in Boise and had them fully flocked as Oldsquaws. At $10/ea I didn't think I was going to get a better deal than that.

Yeah, I got them over this last summer and only used them twice during the season. Once or twice a year is all I ever go after them (still unsuccessfull in harvesting a bird worthy of mounting) but I keep them in a slotted bag and they are pretty durable. And being mostly black and white.... If I ever need to fix one it should be easy enough with a flocking kit. They sure look pretty on the water.
