Always thought about making my own. Seeing as there's no real ducks around might as well make a few fake ones...........

This cold snap should help a little. Nothing was up this past Saturday where we were.

I made this mallard for my father last fathers day. First decoy that I've made in a few years. Hollow bass wood body painted in oil.

Cold snap did nothing. Not a shot fired yesterday. Waiting for it to get REALLY cold and stormy.

Jim,

Nicejob on the deeks. I'd like to try it out. I take it you get the correct width and then glue the sheets untill you get the height you're looking for? I always thought you start with a big block. Sounds good if we all interested can get together - I'm in.

Hunting never stops, the game is always on.

Folks, this is THE most interesting post outside of good reports that I have seen!

I am tempted to join up with you guys, but that would mean yet another hobby that I don't have time for. I really enjoy seeing what you guys are doing. Great looking deeks! Great info! :beer:
Did you say woodcock or woodduck?

Beamer,
My decoys are like a pasta strainer is a understatement HA! Your foam decoys look good, can't wait to see them in the water next season. Just got another 18 buffleheads.
