Traveling Decoy?

Postby GreatBayOutlaw » Sun Jul 28, 2013 7:18 pm

Is there already a traveling decoy for the upcoming season? If not, I am willing to carve a hollow cedar decoy for the season if people are interested....If so, give me an idea of what the most useful decoy would be for you guys and i can come up with a pattern and the bird! Let me know what you guys think

If enough people are interested, we can certainly do it-- thank you for offering to carve the decoy :beer:

A Black duck may be a good choice-- I see them throughout my spots on occasion, especially in the coastal zone.

Something with a little more color-- maybe a hooded merg? I see them all over inland and the coast, mixed in more spots than my other choice, a bufflehead.

it starts with one person for the opening weekend. They hunt over it, take pics, etc and then before the following weekend they either meet up with the next person for a hunt or mail it off/deliver it to them. The decoy spends the season a week or so at a time with various people in all kinds of hunting situations.

They do them for the flyway so it follows the migration too (in the Honey Hole).
