Nice! It's good to see a different head pose than the standard which changes the body shape as well. Nice job

Thanks guys. We have a few more things in the works that are gonna give new looks to our decoys and the heads will be sold individually as well if you want to put them on your own custom decoys.

I'm thinking the paint scheme on the body will have to improve dramatically before I'd consider buying these decoys.
If unusual poses are going to be your company's claim-to-fame, then you might carve out (pun intended) a small niche' for yourself. That's some good carving on the head, but for a working decoy it doesn't seem too important.
Put some of the effort you spent on the head position, into the body and you'll have something. Best of luck!

I like it, I would def gun over them. I am about fed up with plastics and have been trolling your site now since last season. Good chance I will be selling a chunk of my spread and go with your deeks(puddlers and divers).

Thanks guys and yes we are working on adding more detail to the heads we are doing just because it is something different. We also have the option of letting customers paint there own that way they can add the detail that they are looking for.
