    Green Duck Truck YakiVegas swap meet find of Herters 63 widgeon are a great repaint for Harlies. Thanks for reselling them to me GDT.
    I always thought I painted gunners because it was the style of decoy I liked best, and reading old stories of the market gunner days and the decoys they hunted is what got me interested in making decoys.
    After doing these Harlies it is clear that I paint gunners due to the fact that I suck at finish detail .
    They are blocky gunners like I like, and will kill ducks though. 20191119_203442.jpg

    Very cool. Been thinking about doing some decoy repainting myself and you may have just inspired me to finally do it!

    I have 5 dozen 72s in my garage that need to be painted up.

    When can you start?

    Those are nice! I need to do some canvasbacks with some of my older decoys.
