I often wonder how decoys I have made for people in the past have held up after a few years of use. I asked a friend about some ringnecks I made for him several years ago and wondered if they were still in use. He said yes and was nice enough to get me a picture of a couple of them. These are carved foam and flocked decoys with 200 hunts on them. I'm thinking they are holding up just fine. I do appreciate the feedback. I'm very glad they are still hitting the water each year as that's what they were meant to do.
