Regs just got submitted by the commission. We got opening day here for ducks on the 18th. After that its pretty dead until mid december unless there is a hard freeze in Oregon/Washington.

I started carving one. I don't like the pattern I have so I'm drawing my own and starting over. The body would have worked but didn't scream *insert name of duck* to me. The good news is the head will probably work and is carved and waiting.

I drew the pattern this morning and cut it out. Fired up the Hot Wire Cutter and cut the block out. Shaped it. It looks good to me and April gave it a thumbs up. I am letting it sit there before I attach the head and keel. I'll look at it later and see if anything needs to be changed.

I got the head glued on and blended to the body last night. I painted the eyes and will get them put on tonight.

Negative. Also, the duck has no real gray on it to speak of, just a base coat so I can use black and white to make highlights and shadows under the actual color.
