    Blacks make an effective confidence decoy, as it seems other species of ducks appreciate their wariness as much as hunters do. Each of these decoy heads is hand carved from a very light kiln-dried basswood. Linseed oil is applied as a preservative followed by oil paints hand brushed with color blending and feather effects. The linseed oil draws the paint deep into the wood fibers enhancing durability and resulting in a realistic "feather sheen". The result is both beautiful and functional.

    Five pose shapes are available. The standard pose is a classic shape that conveys a highly recognizable fashion. The resting pose is how a content and secure duck will hold its head. The dabbler and drinker poses also conveys security along with a feeding action. The ultimate attitude to convey security is sleeper, and we offer a realistic sleeper that will enhance any rig.

    Attaching the heads are easy, we include instructions with each purchase. We like to attach our heads with a 1/4" X 20 T-nut. The machine thread matches factory eye bolts as supplied by decoy companies such as Herters and Restle. (T-nut not included)

    Our threaded inserts make it easy to attached these replacement decoy heads to various decoy bodies. Outside is course thread, inside is a 1/4-20" thread to accept a standard 1/4" eye bolt. Please click here to purchase threaded inserts.
