a steal at a DU banquet

Postby alanwebfoot » Fri Nov 12, 2010 11:45 pm

got back this evening from a DU banquet where a man purchased at auction an original [not a resin cast] wood carved Jett Brunet Goldeneye for $135. that bird was amzing for the detail and paint!!!

Sounds neat but I have no idea what that decoy is or what price it should have otherwise sold for.

I'm not an expert but I do know Jett and Tad have won best in the world many times over and looking at that decoy showed me why I tell you it impressed me more than any of the prints shotguns or bronzes there it was that lifelike looking!!! I was afraid to touch it but the auctioneer said it even felt like feathers should have went MUCH higher!!

I'm not up on it either but sounds like a great win.

Seems if I win anything it's Sea Duck related here in Ohio. :yes:

In case any of you guys were wondering why your 1 split was slow - here's the November 15th Flyway report. :lol3:

lolololol...that's good news! The field hunting on locals was good with the beans and corn in so early. Juts didn't catch many migrators or many birds over water. There's not a lot of water! I do know some did well with the Woodies early though.
