OUR STORY

 

Here is the story of how Flight Control Decoys and More came to be.  It was about 5 years ago we decided to get back into field hunting Migratory Game Birds.  The problem was that we didn't want to invest a years wage to get setup, we did not have a small warehouse to store our decoy spread and the thought of buying a trailer to haul and store our decoys made us sick.  After a lot of research trying to find the decoys we wanted, a solution became clear....Silhouettes.  This style of decoy was making a huge noise in the hunting world and a massive comeback, having evolved from your grandfathers wooden cut out decoys to the most realistic looking 2D decoys on the market.  So which brand?  Some more research to consider quality, ease of setup, weight, durability, storage and price.....the choice was as clear as the sound of a 3 1/2" shell being fired.  Hunters where talking about them, we wanted them.  Big Al's Silhouette Take Em Style Decoys. Superior in looks, amazingly priced, robust, light weight and extremely effective.  Our decision was made. 

Kurt started emailing with Big Al himself, and soon the first order of Big Al's Decoys were on there way to Southern Alberta.  When the first decoys arrived we could not wait to put them to the test.  Our first time in the field with limits put on the ground we where more than impressed.  So we ordered more (more is always better).

Kurt has been part of Big Al's Pro Staff since his first conversations with Big Al some 5 years ago.  We are truly addicted to the sport of Waterfowl Hunting and spend as much time as possible in the field.  The last few years we have been taking out former waterfowlers looking to get back into it, new hunters who want to experience it and of course the next generation of future hunters to ensure the traditions stay alive.  With every hunt we always heard the same response in regards to how enjoyable the experience was; the unbreakable bonds between hunters formed and the rush of seeing the birds come in like kites on strings....waiting for the legendary phrase "TAKE-EM" .  Before long we had people asking if they could buy some of the decoys we use.  Soon enough hunters from all around Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan were asking if we could get Big Al's for them.  Hmmmm.

In July of 2017 with the help of Bobbi Bachman and Tammy Isherwood Flight Control Decoys and More was born. 

Since the first email some 5 years ago a friendship was developed with Big Al and his entire family.  We have managed to hunt with each other every year, either in Ohio (home of Big Al's Decoys) or in Alberta.  We can truly say that Big Al is one of the most honest and sincere men we have ever met, and we are very proud to call him and his entire family our friends.

For all of these reasons we are very proud to offer for sale, all of Big Al's products in Canada and in Canadian dollars.

My name is Kurtis Bachman and I live on an acreage outside the small town of Coalhurst, Alberta, Canada just an hour north of the Canada/USA border. From the first time I hit the fields with my Dad at a young age, the passion for waterfowl hunting was in my blood. There is nothing better than being in the field early in the morning watching the birds cup up and drop into the spread like pulling kites on strings.
 
From the first hunt over Big Al's silhouettes I knew that these decoys were it! They consistently put birds on the ground be it early season, mid season or late season. The detail on Al's decoys is second to none and they are in a class of their own. Easy carry, easy setup and the staking system is effective in all ground conditions. They are my decoy of choice. The number of birds I put on the ground over them is a true testimony to how effective they really are.
 
For me...All Big Al's All The Time! 
Happy Hunting,
Kurtis Bachman

My name is Dale Isherwood and I live in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.  For over 50 years I have enjoyed the outdoors, fishing and hunting (Migratory, Upland, Rifle and Bow Hunting).  I am very blessed to have created so many memories with family and friends over the years in the field.  And so proud my children share my outdoor passion.  One of the most important things we can do as sportsmen is pass this great love onto future generations.
Please take a newcomer or child with you outdoors no matter what the sport, you will be rewarded more than you can imagine.
