Very nice, your carvings are amazing and your painting is even better.

Those Redheads are simply amazing! They should really be placed on a shelf (like mine)!

Well, the first of the drones are ready for the keel shelf. My glass eyes orders with 3-differnt supply houses continue to be back ordered. So as a result, we are carving drones. They hunt the same, just don’t make for the greatest office/display birds.

These are “Lifesize” Common Goldeneye's

Canvas over wire with basswood heads. They will eventually get butternut keels and join the spread in the fall. They aren’t perfect without eyes, but they will get the job done, and have a nice antique look to them, which I like.

I started this pair of geese Saturday and will have them on the river tomorrow. These are the light weight non burlapped carved foam decoys. They each weigh 18 oz.

wood duck 31 you are the god father of the foam. I have been watching you since the mid 2000's. Tommy Matt's use to make fun of you all the time. Keep up the good work
