    I have a huge cabelas store about 45 minutes from my house. It's always nice to go down there and look around. Rarely do they have what I actually need in stock. It's not that big of a deal as I just have them order it. I love their bargain cave though. You can find some really sweet deals if you hit it right.

    My reaction - 10 pages?!?

    It was a few minor scratches. They will have that most likely after the first few hunts. My Avian X stuff has held up great. I can't speak the customer service but that was a questionable reply from them.

    Were you courteous and businesslike in demeanor when dealing with them?

    Hint, being the north end of a south bound horse when dealing with CS people usually generates a predictable outcome.

    I should have taken a better pic. There was the part where the paint was peeled up and then a bunch of other scratches all over the back. I could care less if they get scratched after using them. I don't see why anyone would accept a brand new decoy like that. Oh well. They are gone now. I won't be making that mistake again.

    I was polite and explained the damage in detail to CS. They were great to deal with and got the replacements out in just a few days.
    I agree that how to speak to them dictates alot as to how willing they may be to help.

    I know for a fact that isn't always true. In general that works. Not this time though.

    If I send you $23.30 to replace the decoy will promise to never post on this forum again?
