Cheapest decoy out there is a dirt clod with a B/W page of the news paper rolled around it with the ends bent up.

Try 2 sheets if one does not hold up ................ about a dozen spread out in a field works great!!

Can't beat the price of materials!!

Great job!

Very few examples of this on the internet.

How have your results been? Anyone?

Crow decoys with a square of white surgical tape near the romp works, so do blue wing teal decoys with the tape. The key is the white on the just forward of the tail..
Banded Birds - Black Ducks - 6, Mallards 19 (3 Jack Miner) BW Teal - 2, Wood Ducks - 1, 1 Ross and 1 snow Goose (Both reward bands) , Canada Geese - 15 (2 neck collars), Morning Dove - 1.

I know some guys who claim diver decoys and mojos.
