My repaints are fugly but they still coax birds to light. I can just always use some extras for longlines.

They look amazingly like my scaup re-paints. A lot of my randomly found decoys usually get the diver treatment if they are real beat up and old. Hell I'd guess that 40% of my spread is made of lost deeks.

I was joking, no hard feelings Cajun. They do look good though. Here are some redhead repaints I did from some old mallard dekes.

Goldeneye repaints from old mallard decoys. Not the best, but goldeneyes aren't very picky so they work great.

Not the best?!?! If you haven't had a chance to take these out, you'll see how well they'll work. Goldies have shown up this year and I think I'll paint a dozen.

I took them out yesterday and we got our two limits after about 2 hours. The goldeneyes weren't at their peak numbers but they sure didn't mind these decoys. Gotta love how these goldeneys come bombing into the decoys.

I painted some pretty pitiful looking buffleheads and they work extremely well. I have landed flocks each hunt this year.

what kind of paint do you guys use for doing repaints? I have about 50 or 60 old decoys that I am going to paint up, but not sure on what paint to use.

Thanks guys.

I use flat or semi gloss spray paint for divers. Sand em down put a good coat of bedliner or 2 coats of primer and paint away. From my experience divers aren't picky.

Thanks! I have given up on the puddle ducks and been chasing the divers lately. They are alot of fun to hunt. I really enjoy it. I have been borrowing some diver decoys from one of my hunting buddies, but think its time to paint some up!
