    I usually lurk around diver forum and am a stranger here so bear with me if this is a repeat to regulars. I am taking my family to see the mouse late March. I am towing my camper down so I thought it would be fun to pick up 4-6 (price) palm fronds while there. Any info on source is appreciated and what would I expect to pay. Feel free to PM if you prefer thanks in advance

    When they fall off the trees, people usually throw them out in the trash. No problem to find.

    What are you going to do with them? Carve decoys? I have not seen anything with enough wood in them? Camo? Just curious...

    Yes to carve decoys out of. I had some PM's, but I think I didn't convey the decoy caving part well, as the PM's were about the leafy par of the palm frond. I am still in the market for 4-6 of them big enough for scoter decoys.

    Its the part just under the "leafy" part, which is the frond itself. If you come this way we will go to the corenr and you can have as many as you want.

    I have several in my yard you can have. If it's not what you want we can go to the woods and find what you want.
