    I saw this and thought it would look great to display in my office so I bought it a couple of days ago - it should arrive sometime on Saturday. What decoys do you guys have on display?

    I've got an old LL Bean cork black duck at the house, and a few Victor Majestic mallards. Actually have a whole dozen old Victor canvasbacks that I still hunted over until the dog at the dang heads and tails off nearly every one of them. Nothing really old or rare but kinda cool nonetheless. If I had a better place to display them I'd like to start a little collection though.

    Hey I have a couple of the "Know Your Ducks" or is that "Ducks at a Distance" by Sports Afield.

    Believe it or not, my wife, who doesn't hunt, loves decoys and has put together this display for the house. IMG_1849.JPG IMG_1850.JPG

    Cedar head, cork body, wings are sheet metal and the covering is like paper mache but done with a cloth of some sort.

    Wish I had more space at home, and sorry I can't post pics, but I display two- a 1930 and a 1946 Victor mallard decoy and a Patrick Vincenti 1999 Black duck- this is a treasured gift from my mentor.

    At my camp, we have the whole ceiling lined with at least 100 old decoys. Lots of old cork decoys, some old victors, and other miscellaneous decoys. All of these decoys have some history to them, as my partner and I actually gunned over them as part of of spread over the years. I don't have pics of the whole place, but your can get the idea from this section of the wall. Decoys.jpg
