Here is the one of the super mag old squaw I am almost finished up with, still needs a little touch up and I have to attach the head to the body so there is a gap there still. What are your thoughts

Very nice. Those will probably be my next decoy making project.
When I die I hope its in a duck blind, that, or shot in the back climbing out of a jealous mans bedroom window.

Thanks guys, this one was the first oldsquaw I painted up so I dont think it turned out to bad the worst part was the head.

I don't know what you used for the tail, but a guy I know made some nice ones and used a utility knife to cut out wedges of black, irrigation hose... it's indestructible and flexible.

Brennen,
Looking good bud. :thumbsup:
Just to give everyone a heads up, if you are looking for a very large decoy that is pretty much indestructible, Bigger Water Decoys is for you. I was sent a sample body and head to put it through some testing. All I can say is this company has done a lot of research and knows what the hardcore waterfowler is looking for in a decoy. Quality, durability, anatomy and of course size ( I think the bigger the better). Smaller, life size decoys tend to disappear in the Ocean. For those of you looking to get some new large body Sea Duck decoys BWD should have the Scoter and Eider heads completed within the next few weeks.

Thanks,
Steve K
