Got you sky dog, there are still 3 rogue voters. I will put a deadline to vote here soon, probably within a week or two. If your name is not on the list by then, tough. I should have a set amount of slots because I know there are not enough days to have 20 guys get a good chance with the deke. We may have enough already but if anyone is still interested do not hold back by any means we can make this work. :beer:

Please add gooose to the list. I would like to join in this adventure. I have four scaup I am getting ready to carve and I wish I had laid out a black duck now. This could have been a traveling pair. I carve the hollow Jersey style working decoys just like my great-grandfather, grandfather, father and uncles. Some of you probably know the name - A family of South Jersey decoy carvers.

Will do goose, the traveling pair idea sounds great. We were also considering if we get enough interest that there may be two seperate travelers going throughout VA simultaneously. So the 2nd place bird may come into play. Although currently that looks like its a mallard :huh: come on guys make things interesting. My 2nd vote was a ringneck. 1st was a black.

It only works cause I use a Triple Threat autographed by Si. I saw him in Gordons Creek one day runnin across the marsh. He was terrified! Said something bout a Bigfoot lookin ape was throwing rocks at him. True story, I never saw the creature though.

Its a good thing you didnt see it. You'd come out looking like one of those silver wood ducks.
