    The trusting Redhead is very susceptible to a well executed diver decoy spread. The relatively large size of a male redhead and it's gray back contrasts nicely with the more common bluebill diver decoy. Our redhead drake head includes the distinctive yellow eyes on the drake and warm brown of the hen. Standard drake (unpainted) , hen (unpainted), versions are offered. 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.

    Redhead decoy heads are only offered in the standard pose. Magnum (Herters 72) size is based on 16-18" body length.

    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.
