Traveling decoy?

Postby Capemaycarver609 » Wed Jul 31, 2013 9:37 pm

Who wants to set one up? It'd be cool to have one of my decoys float around for a season and come back with a story or two to tell me! :lol3:

Give me some suggestions and I will pick something to carve (try and keep it universal, not everyone hunts mallards). I'll hunt over it opening day then mail it out to the next guy! Come on, lets get it goin!

I know there already is one but I'd like to see one of my own decoys go around!
I will contact him and see if he'd like a new carver this year

...what all I want to do is send out a decoy I've carved and see where it ends up. No negativity or promotion intended. I'm an 18 yr old kid trying to do some new things with duck hunting that's it and that's all. Not trying to sell anything or offend anybody.

Seems like this website is a lot of cliques and not very welcoming to young people/new posters.
I don't really understand the carving cork part or racking my boat part

Thanks for the interest guys! To the previous posters I truly am sorry after this ill stop talking about DUCK decoys on DUCK hunting chat.

A swan would be a really interesting traveling decoy. I'd be interested in doing it, it's just that it may be harder for people to ship. I've been on a real carving frenzy if that matters to anybody and I think a goldeneye would be sweet since they've been shot in almost all environments but a swan could also be fun!

We will be organizing the travels this decoy will make and most likely the type of waterfowl it should be at the cape may county du hunters party. Let me know some new suggestions!

Can you carve a 'Man' decoy? I have been hauling a mannequin I stole from macy's out into the marsh for decades, it has become water-logged and down right beat up. I dress the mannequin up in mossy oak clothes and plant it right in the middle of my decoys. This is easily the best decoy I own, as it brings weary blackducks and mallards right into shooting distance. I tried the mannequin with a fake shotgun slung over its shoulder but the birds flared at 80 yds. If you could also carve one that appears to be "taking a leak" I suspect that would be the best possibily.
