Fathers Christmas Gift
« on: November 08, 2014, 06:31:42 PM »
I would like to purchase a single decoy for my father that he could display in his man cave.  I had every intention of finishing one of my own, but with hunting season starting and work, I just do not have the time. 

I'd like it to be a HD cork decoy, but am limited in what I can spend. I'd like to keep it between the $80-$120 range.

I apologize if this is not allowed on this forum and if not allowed one of the mods can go ahead and delete this post.

Thanks,

Brayden O.

What kind of bird are you looking for species wise?
I am sure someone here can hook you up!

I am not overly picky. I'd just prefer that it is a drake and a dabbling duck as that is what we target the most.

These shovelers are not cork, but bbootywood body and head.  Painted in acrylics.  If you are interested I can let them go for $120 ea.  You can buy one or both.

I've had two offers sent to me, Just not the ideal species, anybody want to get rid of Pintail, Widgeon, or Gadwall? Price is negotiable if it blows me out of the water.

Im working on a Pintail now, but it's iffy if I'd finish him in time.

Wigeon, gadwall and pintail are three of the toughest birds to paint. Color and layout are absolutely important on all three of those birds

I have not gotten to the paint on any of my decoys, so I would not know. What about a ringneck? Same difficulties in painting?
