    My guess is the 70's-ish...I was given several dozen of them years ago

    I bought 16 of mixed mallards & blacks in early 80,s from cabelas. Sold them latter on. Cabelas also had a run of exact duplicates of l.l.bean coastal decoys. Were from same carver as beans. Stamped cabelas on keel. Only had them in their catalog for couple years. I,ve got a few of those still.

    Yeah, I'd say late 1990's. I have the Cabela's 1995 Fall Catalog. It has about 10 pages total of waterfowl gear, and the only duck decoys they carried then are the ubiquitous Carry-Lite's and G&H's. They hadn't yet started to expand into the specialty decoy market yet.
