    Whew, BA!

    I thought I was the only one confused with that mount. Once I figured it out, it made sense. I couldn't tell the bottom one was a block and I thought one was "riding" the other. :nutz
    I assume that that is a common pose for eider dekes?

    And thanks to medulla for posting the pic.

    Your welcome TL!

    It is difficult to convey what is going on with the mount from the photo.

    Very nice and unique concept. I like it a lot.

    Surely that is not a factory paint job on the block!!!!!!!????

    Nice work birdartist!

    you can get them anywhere from primered to highly detailed.they are hunting decoys.they are highly detailed urethane decoys that have been cast from wood originals.
