The idea for a different type of decoy bag started to bake in 2014. After a long day of duck hunting, I started thinking about ways that could make the packing of all my equipment easier and not feel like a pack mule. I had tried many different types of decoy bags, carts, and sleds but I knew there had to be a better way.
I hunt in private ponds, swamps and public waterways. Most private ponds are located in the middle of a field and the owner does not want any vehicles driving on the property. A swamp is always difficult to carry equipment in and out, and I never knew what I was getting into on public land. At times it meant hauling all of my equipment back and forth spending a lot of time during the setup or setting up a blind in advance only to lose my spot to another hunter.
So, I started experimenting with a different style of decoy bags using a 1917 Singer. After many tries, I finally came up with a design that worked, and I have been using these bags ever since.
While using these bags in the field, I had multiple hunters ask me where they could get them. After explaining that I made them, they wanted me to make them one. This encouraged me to start thinking about starting a company.
In 2016 I heard about the Startup Weekend at Zane State Collage and decided to pitch my idea there to see if it would appeal to other individuals that were non hunters. I had already started the patent process and formed a team to think through this idea to see if I could make it into a business. By the end of the weekend, I had set up my first commercial meetings and I won 1st place. Since then, I have developed new products and sold them throughout the country at different venues as well as online.
