Examples of Hunting Decoys and How they Work

After searching for months, I finally decided on 2 6x6 Ambush Stalker blinds which are made right here in the USA. The customer service from Ambush was top notch. Every time I called Ambush, one of the owners answered the phone and spent time talking to me about their blinds. I really preferred the new window design and the black out window covers, which were not on either of my blinds at the time of purchase. Ray at Ambush drove over 3+ hours one way to my property and replaced them for me. Who does that? You wont find better service anywhere!
