    David was originally from Quincy, Illinois, not far from my home. Several years ago hecame back to a gallery in Quincy showing his work. I purchased an original Pintail Portrait from him. I had purchased his book about the Midwest Storm in the 30’s several years ago and took it with me. He was kind enough to autograph the book and drew a very detailed drawing of a pair of Pintail decoys for me. Super nice guy

    I want some of those. A couple dozen would work!

    It would be nice if some decoy company would manufacture them, a nice addition to the spread without taking up a lot of space.

    Drake Pintail pickleweeds would be very useful due to the white breast. I could see them being very effective in the drier areas of the salt marshes and meadows I hunt. I have been thinking of making some with coroplast. Not traditional but I'm sure they would work well.
