This cocky diver with the rear-facing head crest is the mainstay of our Mississippi Flyway diver shooting, especially these days with the declining population and lower bag limits for bluebills.
They nest locally in the forested lake region of Minnesota and north into Canada providing us shooting from opening day until ice-up and then on down the flyway to wintering grounds in the deep south.
My hunting buddies and myself felt intuitively that good ringneck duck decoys would be more effective than the bluebills we had been using and we were right! While any diver duck decoy will work fairly well (and sometimes even mallards) we found we could get more ringnecks in closer by using species specific duck decoys. We want our duck decoys to be noticed (recognized) and the 12" x 7" two times oversize dimensions of our ringneck assures that will happen.
Autumn Wings hand carved basswood ringneck decoys weigh about 1.5 lbs each.
