This motor is taking up all my free time while driving me crazy. Here is a bufflehead. I got him and another done, and I have 6 goldeneyes that are in various stages right now. I used acrylic eyes on the goldeneyes, which was a first for me.

Sweet! After putting all that time and detail into them, have you thought about making a decoy sock for each one, to keep them from getting banged up in the boat?

I haven't decided yet. I have a full body duck bag that would fit 2 per slot, but I might be long lining the divers this year, and I might put them in the big rubber maid containers with holes drilled in them if I do that.

After its all said and done, and the dekes are loaded in the boat, there's usually no room for the hunters or their dog. :)

Ask my girlfriend about that. She usually has to sit on top of them.
