Bought a turkey vest

Had a couple gift cards to spend at Bass Pro, so i ordered a few things online.  One was a primos turkey vest.  Got it in the mail esterday, complete with....... Security tag????? Huh?????  Wouldn't think they'd have those things on in the shipping area..... lol

How do you get those things off?  Any shoplifters out there????  ::whistling:  (kidding)

Maybe slide some pliers underneath?  Kinda odd that it was on there...... Vest is too big, but I hate returning things anyway, I've lost 33 pounds.  Maybe I can make it work.

Tag

Those tags have ink in them or something, DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE, you will be sorry, they need a special tool to remove, i had the same problem with a coat we bought for my Wife a few years ago at Cabela's, we bought it at the store they forgot to remove that tag, store was 110 miles away oneway, we ended up just talking it to our local mall to a store, and showed them the reciept, they removed it for us.

Yes Don, it does.  I am going to just return it up the road to Bass Pro next time I am there and get a smaller size.

That type of tag doesn't have

That type of tag doesn't have ink in it. I've had some store forget to remove them before and I just used a dremil tool on the inside part of it. cut away the plastic and cut the metal pin and you'll be fine.

Figured I would just do it

Figured I would just do it that way, but then it didn't really fit that well, so I decided I would just bring it back.

When i had that problem with Cabela's, they told me that there was ink in it ? and not to just try and cut it off.

not the flat type

The flat type tags don't have ink in them, You can tell the ink type tags by looking at them. Most companies have gone away from the ink tags anyways, they are expensive and they ruin the clothing products. They will just release the ink for no reason. so most but not all have gone away from them. I have enen cut ink tags off with out releasing the ink. I have had the same thing happen that happened here and those tags are pretty easy to get off.

Maybe it's a Bass Pro Thing

While I was down in Vegas late last month on a desert sheep hunt (a buddy had the tag) we stopped in a Bass Pro to do a little grazing.  Bought a couple of pieces of UnderArmour clothing and didn't realize until 70 miles away and 12 hours later that one piece still had the security tag attached (the other piece of clothing only had the stud with nail attached still imbedded in the clothing.  Fortunately I saw it before it had a chance to puncture my back).  Anyway, when I got home I took the thing into a local clothing store along with the receipt and they kindly removed the tag (probably didn't hurt that the store didn't sell UnderArmour products either) and I didn't have to worry about damaging the clothing.

Maybe the tag on the turkey vest is trying to tell you something - look for and shoot only turkeys that have those little pop up thingies in the breast meat..... Just a thought!

That might be one approach,

lol

That might be one approach, considering the ones from the grocery store with the pop-up things are the only ones I have ever got.  Never killed a turkey yet.......
