    Stop on by for your free block of wood big boy - it's bound to have a duck or ten thousand toothpicks tucked in there somewhere...

    Cork, tupelo, basswood or northern white cedar is pretty much all I have at the moment when it comes to decoy blocks. And Simple Boy never has stopped by for his lesson in burning cork (for black ducks). I think he's skeered he might get them sausage fingers well done.

    I have a custom forged hair-shavin'-sharp carving hatched you can borrow if you'll let me know how that works for you...

    2" blue foam board stacked, glued together, carved, restle coated, painted with Homer decoy head. Off season stuff.


    Listen to your elders. Not because they are always right but because they have more experiences of being wrong.
