Item #: BDC-Redhead -

The story behind the Series 72 decoy Once upon a time the Herter’s “family” in Waseca MN sat down to create the “ultimate” duck decoy. It needed to be lightweight, unsinkable, and durable. They settled on a solid foam construction and maybe because it was just over 7” wide they called it the Model 72 (Herter’s Model 72 is a trademark of Cabela’s last we checked) and it became the favorite of serious duck hunters in many flyways for the latter half of the 20th century. Untold thousands were...

Wooden Bufflehead
Availability: In Stock
Item #: DC-Bufflehead -

This "butterball" is a bundle of energy in the air over marshes large and small. They typically travel in small groups and seem to delight in changing elevations at high speeds. This is the smallest diver and would appear smaller yet if the drake did not have the puffy hooded head with strident white set off by iridescent purple and green. Our decoy emphasizes this distinctive head shape, seemingly large for a bird of this diminutive stature. The hen is characteristically muted as hen divers...

Canvasbacks were prized by market...

Wooden Wood Duck
Availability: In Stock
Item #: DC-Woodduck -

These beauties add a touch of elegance to a decoy spread. Beautiful in flight, sitting on a branch, or swimming wood ducks are a welcome addition to a hunters bag. They look for secluded back waters and prefer wooded covers such as river bottoms and small ponds. Found all across North America but most numerous in the Mississippi and Atlantic flyways. Our "woodies" are close to life size and look as terrific on the mantel as they do in the water.
