Dave, I bootyume the purple on the crown is just a base color. Never saw a gaddie with that coloration on the crown.
so many carvers, so few decoy makers

Man my mom had a weasel ball and I thought of trying to use it in a decoy but never did anything with it. I need to find it and make one now.

Ben,
If you don't locate the weasel ball, try a Cracker Barrell Restaurant, they sell them.

Unfortunately I hadn't touched a decoy for ~5yrs until last weekend.  During the snow storm I sat down and churned out this pair of gw teal gunners.  I have a long way to go on my carving & especially painting, but these are a decent starting point. As soon as the oil dries, I'm going to rig these and add them to my hunting rig.
