    <P>&nbsp;I just checked the Cabela's website. For the past two months the blank Model 81 bodies have been out of stock. Now they are deleted from the website. Does this mean that they are not going to been available from now on? For those that build and burlap&nbsp;their own blocks that was a good body. I'll have to find another source for magnum blanks.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Model 81 bodies are not discontinued, they are only out of stock.&nbsp; They should be available within a couple of days of my posting.&nbsp;&nbsp; I run the waterfowl area at the Dundee store, so if you ever need some I can bring them into the store if you let me know.&nbsp; 81 bodies are not big sellers.&nbsp; I usually have 72 bodies (divers and puddlers) in stock year round.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">As for the Restles, I believe Herters stopped making them before Cabela's ever came into the picture.&nbsp; The last Herters catalogs I recieved stopped listing them.&nbsp; I tried to find some when Cabela's purchased Herter's, but none were available.&nbsp; I have to believe that they were just to regional (nobody outside the lake Erie region wanted them).&nbsp; Herter decoys are similar, I sell a ton of them but stores in other states sell very few.&nbsp; </P>

    PC you will probably be a very popular guy on this site--especially if you can give us a heads-up on upcoming sales!
