Nice decoys!

But one has to wonder how long before you have another melt-down and start deleting all your post again?

Hi Don,
They look great, as usual!
I assume these are foamers, do you use a plywood core/insert to strengthen the neck, head and bill ?

You can only praise his decoys, just don't make one yourself... or, if another guy wants to make a foam decoy and asks you some super basic questions like "where do you get foam" and "how do you fill voids/mistakes" and "what is the difference between burlap and restle coat".... or other industry secrets like "what is a sandwich head" --

DON'T ANSWER!!! If you do, you'll get permanently banned from his PRIVATE DECOY FORUM for giving away all the secrets! :beer:

Great decoys Don. Gotta try some of those next year.

By the way, thanks for all the help you've given me, and the tour of the shop. And tell Caleb thanks again for the painting lesson.
