What's up with Quaker Boy?

Postby shaman » January 12th, 2013, 4:23 pm

I don't want to start a rumor or anything, but Quakerboy.com just went dark-- not just the forum, but the whole domain.

Anyone know anything about the status of the company?


UPDATE: The site is back up and I heard this from Chad aka "TrophyTracker" on the forum:

When the main site goes down for maintenance, or to add the new product line for example, it takes the forum down as well. No worries, Quaker Boy is going to be running strong and coming Hard in 2013

That certainly can't be a good thing!

I don't know what the status of the company is but i do know i'm not seeing any adds for them lately and i haven't notice any new products in the stores. which in very sad. when i started hunting there were three call makers that were in the stores in my area Quaker Boy , Penn Woods and Lynch all three made good calls and over the years i had used products form them all......wayne

Just saw some Quaker Boy adds on the Sportsman Channel yesterday evening while watching turkey stuff. If they are still sponsoring then they should still be going strong. Maybe they had a site crash or virus or something like that. Here's hoping.

Hey TJ, I heard the same thing but some one on here said that they are dropping Russell Athletics from making some of their stuff. If I remembered correctly.
Is it turkey season yet?

chris kirby does the segment "call thug" on turkey thugs. quaker boy makes the turkey thug series calls and is advertised fluently throughout the show.

chris kirby did the same thing on last year's season in the "call thug" segment. this year, i believe they only took cuz out to focus on the "thugs" themselves

****i dont believe a call company as prolific as quaker boy would be taking a dive anytime soon

They're back!

They popped up this morning on my screen-- Quakerboy.com

It looks like they were giving the website a facelift.

It seems like they might have put up a banner on their site to let everyone know it was getting a facelift. Whatever. I'm glad that they're back up & running. A couple of my favorite calls are Q.B. Boat Paddles and I can't imagine them going away...even though they quit making both calls some time ago...GRRrrr. :(

I have a favorite QB call also. It was the first call I purchased,,,,The Grand Ole Master,,,,and they quit making it but have brought back on the market. I also have the little hurricane but just not the same. The grand ole master I use till they are coming good then use the primos freak.

Any body know what is wrong with the smilies? they don't come up in the post any more. :? :?
