Buoy decoys *complete*

1 of 12 down...lines are a little shaky looking. Next time I will wait for the third beer to kick in before I start with the thin lines.

I'd hunt over them if there were any ducks in Virginia! Great work.

BTW...I have an anchor, battery box and other items for you.
Cheers

Haven't had too much time...I'm going to try and finish them up this weekend. I have a little green left and then the white. Check out my post "sick dog" in the honey hole forum if your curious to where the time went. :sad: I also took on another project fixing up some old foamers I have. Also have a cool idea for a pair of common mergansers i want to make. I will post pics when I get them going.

Bullfrog you have really got the bug. Now you are making your own decoys from bouys. You are doing a fine job at it too. If you need a tub of mastic for when you start burlaping decoys I have one I could give to you when I go to Langley to schedule my household goods move. Have a good and safe season up here this year.

If you get a VA license this year let me know, I owe you a couple of hunts. I got a nice 18 foot hunting boat for this year thanks to a stellar member of this forum. Thanks for everything and I wish you werent moving. Good luck with your retirement. I have a huge tub of mastic left over from a tile job so I'm good, but I appreciate it. Check in and drop us a line once in a while.

Bullfrog,
It is good to hear you pup is on the road of recovery. If you come to the VA. Outdoor Sportsman this year, stop by the Rappahannock Carvers' booth.

I want to try and make it. I have a wedding that weekend so I have to play it by ear. If I do I will swing by and say hi.
