Does anyone happen to have any old mallard or blue bill decoys that they would want to sell at a reasonable price? The paint can be in terrible condition. Me and my buddy had about 3 dozen beatup mallard deeks that we repainted as blue bills and i like how they turned out and im looking to paint more. I'll be posting the pics soon and yall can tell me what ya think. Thanx everyone

I have close to 100 diver decoys done in the same way. They're pretty dumb, even my crude paint job sucks them in.

Well I think it would be reasonable to assume that most readers would be more interested in the decoy painting if Don's "Buddy" was showing them...................... Lost

Ha, she's not the buddy I was talking about. My GF likes to help paint. My bodies are done with spray cans, the heads are done in red oxide primer. That stuff is durable as the day is long. The good stuff doesn't come in a spray. I didn't like any spray red that I found anyways and the mix of red, black and white sucks in most species of diver pretty well. I have redheads, cans, broadies and buffies ddone like this, all on old sportsplast mallards. If we shoot them, big deal.
