    That's who I bought them from. At the time young man named Jason Chaplin had the company, I think I got some of the last ones he made and it took some coaxing to get them. I lost his cell number and from other posts on here and other sites the website email has not gotten any responses. He did or does live in Broken Bow, NE and another friend of mine would like to buy the molds and or business. He is/was a friend of one of Lynn Bergren's sons as I went on a hell of a duck hunt one time with them.

    The DOA are a bit smaller and I can fit more in the truck, numbers are more important than size for what I need to do. I have had them a shorter time but the flocking seems to be holding its color better. Also, I know the folks at DOA and they are good folks and want to support them.

    I love my FA's but the only problem is trying to find them as they are constantly out of stock!

    Sweet sleeper shells...or actually no

    My guess is they do probably have about a 3/4" diameter hole forcefully bored somewhere on each one though, so maybe that counts.
