He doesn’t normally do cork either but wanted to for these.  He goes different directions for different things and like most carvers has his trademark lines.  Not as detailed as yours but fun to hunt over nonetheless.

 

My fave that he’s done for me:

Thats the thing decoys are like calls,guns and 

Its all about what you like.

They ALL work..

Its ALL GOOD...

The guys that post negative [PoorWordUsage] likethis is the only one to use and nothings better are either some prostaff or someone validating what the bought.

Its GOOD to be proud of what you own,made or do...

This is what Im doing today..

This is about a hour+ scrapped..
Not happy with the eye set so I cut them off and will try again..
Double flocking on my birds requires a outset set eye so the eyering stands out need to use a smaller lower profile glass..
Tough to do with shaky hands and 15year old red apoxie sculpt..
Even more funs putting pinpoint pupils on the smaller glass....

I bring a pair of Ringneck's to the BW  for fall trips, would love to add a couple Black Duck dekes to the 2 duck spread. :)

That doesn’t sound logical to me at all. 😉

Going on 15 years of making foamers and making less and less each run which is why Im playing with the beasts..

Getting a few flocked early mornings before work and after..Got about 70 to do

 

 

Got a couple spots I hit up here shot a few pure blackies but around the area mixes are pretty common..

Ringers are fun time I pretty much hunt off the dock unless one of the guys has a hot pond.. 

Once migration gets rolling then its Honk n Beans for me..
