Standard Domestic Shippingg

For most domestic we use FedEx as our primary shipper. Our defaul shipping option for all products is FedEx Ground and the chart to the right demonstrates the expected delivery date from the time the product is shipped (please allow 2 business days to process order package for shipment.

Expedited Shipping

We do offer expedited shipping options for domestic shipments. These are automatically calculated at checkout once you enter your entire address based on our FedEx rate.

“My Shipping Cost Seems High”

Shipping costs can be high on our products because they are large boxes and the cost is based on size, not weight. However, if you have purchased several
smaller items from different categories (ie. Apparel, Stakes, Accessories), sometimes that cost can be higher than our actual cost, because the system doesn’t calculate that we can ship those items together. If that is the case, please reach out to us via chat, email or phone and we can assist you.

We are working hard to lower your costs for shipping and always looking for new ways to leverage for lower costs!

Save wtih Ground With Freight Shipping

Many of our orders consist of large quantities of boxes, so we have worked with UPS to come up with a flat rate shipping options. Once you buy over 5 boxes of decoys, you qualify for UPS Ground with Freight Shipping Pricing. Whether you order 5 or 100 boxes, that price is the same. This can save customers who are looking to purchase a lot of money on shipping. This program is only valid when shipping to the Lower 48.

International Shipping

We can ship to almost anywhere in the world. Pricing to ship to you is automatically calculated at checkout once you fill in your entire address.

Duties & Taxes

Due to the wide range of duties and taxes by each country, we are unable to predict any extra cost that will incur once the items are received. Please look into this before ordering to avoid extra charges.

Shipping Policy

All in-stock items will be processed and shipped within 2-3 business days. Pre-order or out of stock items will have an estimated ship date and a notification that the item is out of stock. These items will ship within 2-3 business days of being in stock. If an order is made on an item that is not available that was not marked out of stock, we will notify you as soon as possible and allow you to decide if you would still like the item at a later date.

Domestic Shipping

Our flat rate shipping price and options vary depending on product and box size. We utilize both UPS Ground and USPS Standard Shipping options to save you as much money as possible. Shipping times will vary depending on method, but typically range between 3-10 days. Expedited shipping methods that are selected at checkout will match the time frame estimate of those guaranteed shipping methods.

International Shipping

Because domestic shipping options vary widely we only offer estimated time frames on a per case basis.
