Here is the only book ever published on how to make modern duck decoys. From solid wood, hollow wood, natural cork, and pressed cork bodied decoys, all are fully described in this volume. There are 32 authentic scaled patterns for cutting out heads and bodies, the great majority reproduced lifesize so they can be traced directly. These are the actual patterns used by a number of famous decoy makers. The painting of both sexes of all the most popular species is explained in great detail. There are chapters on ballast and balancing weights, anchors and anchor lines, and setting out your decoys for various species.
