    I'm thinking of ordering some Homer sleeper decoys. It would be a fun project for my girl to complete.

    Question is should order them with Homer coat? 20190101_132154.jpg

    The Homer Coat will make the decoys have a tough outer shell. It is not necessary and could be added a few years down the road once the decoys require repainting.

    Has Homer Decoy ever got a reasonable shipping contract so shipping is not the same as buying the decoys.

    I looked because I have some Cabelas gift cards and it says out of stock.

    Tony sold the company to a guy from Maryland a couple weeks ago. Prior to that, shipping was free. Not sure about now.

    Cabela's hasn't sold them for a while now.

    To the OP As for the rest you will have to contact the new owners. We dropped Cabela’s in August due to having to be tied to daily inventory feeds and such every day and as a small business who spends a lot of time at shows that simply didn’t work for us. But it was fantastic for advertising and building the best and largest foam decoy company in the world. Be sure to check them out they are truly are the best foam Decoys made.

    We wish the new owners great success and will obviously continue to support Homer Decoys in anyway we can.

    The homer coat option is a great way to build some texture and a more realistic looking decoy. It will add durability and eliminate shine as well.

    I've always wanted to hunt over some decoys I had a hand in making. After some research the Homer Decoys look like a project I could tackle and get the grandkids involved in during the off season. It looks like Homer has relocated right up the road from me. After watching the videos I really like the look of the burlapped decoys and the Homer Coated decoys. Any advice or pro's and con's of each?

    Homer coat is easy to apply I did with my 9yr old. She had a great time helping me.
