First Decoy...Are you bold enough to share it?
« on: March 01, 2013, 04:38:59 PM »
For a confedience boost, search for first decoy.  Mine is in there somewhere.  ;D

We really ought to have a sticky in the lodge for everybody's first decoy... No chit chat just the pix :)

I think it's a GREAT idea, Dave, and I REALLY like the "no chit chat" guideline. Just post a picture and what it is, i.e. species (could be important to "state" what it is  ;)), and medium.

There's no way I can find a photo of my "first" decoy. It was wood, and I was a young lad, so I'll get this party started with my first foam decoy (C Goldeneye, Nov. 2010)...it hurts a little to look at  :-[ ...

Last year, Pacific Brant painted with flat oil base enamel.  Hunted it once, then retired.  Nope, no plans on cleaning it :)

first one since i started this web site. Had others before this just made from foam no mastic but threw them out. They were about the same but this was my first after learning about mastic and this site.

Not the first but close enough.  I think this is number 3.  #1 is woth my brother and #2 was stolen but they all looked the same.

Don't have a head on shot but yes....it's shaped like a shoe box.

Be patient, folks--Dave Sikorski just left here, laughing hysterically at some stuff that was living in the shed--made 1974 or 75, and they are examples of my learning curve-All i have to do now is get him registered up so you all may see my early processing! Oh my, some of these are bowsers!! ::) ;D
so many carvers, so few decoy makers
