The key to carving a successful decoy is having good reference material. And the decoys that hunt best of all are the ones that mimic the characteristics of the actual ducks. Anatomy is all-important. Painting beyond simply blocking in the color areas almost doesn't matter...at least not to the ducks.

Our plans have been refined time and again over the last thirty years. These decoys hunt, and yet they win competitions too. Because we use the same patterns for hunters and realistics, you are free to make them as plain or as detailed as you like. Professional carvers often turn out slicks first to get a feel for the anatomy and followup with a detailed realistic working off the same pattern.

All patterns are lifesize or slightly larger unless otherwise noted.
