Connecticut decoy

Postby jerseywaterfowler » Sat Nov 30, 2013 8:26 pm

Been spending the past few days starting the process of cleaning out my in-laws house in CT as my father in-law is in a home. While cleaning up came across duffel bags of decoys. They mostly appear to be home made and primarily bluebills. A simple cork on plywood with a counterweight screwed in. There were 4 of these things, which are huge, twice as big as any decoy and I am guessing was used for sea duck hunting on LI sound. Anyone ever seen such a thing?

The decoy in the photo you posted is a Surf Scoter Drake, not a Bluebill. Commonly hunted in the area you mentioned.

Irish,
Thank you on the ID, my message was poorly written. There are bill dekes also and 4 black decoys. I love hunting black ducks so I am keeping and hunting with them. The big scooters are cool displays, and I am going to put one in front of my house and also bring one to my mom's house on Long Beach Island to put in garden.
