    Sweet conversion!!!! It'll be more than enough to pull in scoters. You could have just painted them all black and it would have worked as well. The extra color looks great though and is much more pleasing to hunt over (at least to the hunters)!!!

    Fantastic!!!!!! Those look like they could be production decoys!!!! Of course the blue needs to be finished on the head, but you also implied that you weren't finished. They look spectacular so far though!!

    Beautiful. The blue on the head would have made it a bit more realistic, but I bet you can kill a boat load of harlis over it the way it sits!! Great looking paint job!!

    great job man... Hey, you may have already done this, but the guys on TakeEm.com suggest using matte clear acyllic in the finish and spray a couple of coats to keep them looking new longer... I did this with my new decoys and they didn't get banged up as easy thru the season.

    Great looking dekes. Now how do you cook a seaduck to make them worth eating. DOn't get me wrong. Best shooting to be had, but still looking for a good recipe.
