Checkout the "repainting hot buys" thread. I did some of mine last fall.

Thanks man. I think the drake mallard bodies turned out a little better than the hen bodies did just because I think the feathers on the hens look a little goofy. Not sure what the ducks think though as I never had the chance to use them last year. I more or less did them to use as long distance attractors and since I had no need for more mallards in my spread......

Didn't even notice it the 1st time. My opinion, by the time they can pick those details out (if they can even pick that out), they should be dead :thumbsup:

Nice job again, if you ever are in central NC and looking for some hunting, bring them suckers down and let's chase some Cans :yes: :yes:
