    Default repaints

    so i picked up a bunch of decoys that the paint is fallen off. i have repainted golden eyes and blue bills before. but i was wondering whats the most common divers up here that i should paint them into. I am probably going to make a few divers lines out of them so idk if it will matter too much or not what i paint them into. just trying to get some ideas.

    blue bills and golden eyes are the most common out in the Knik. Sometimes there is a buffy around.

    Do the drakes fully molt by the time they get down to Anchorage? I've killed several goldeneyes this season around Fairbanks and they've allllll been brown. Not a speck of winter plumage.
