    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.

    Ringneck heads are only offered in the standard pose. Magnum (Herters 72) size is based on 16-18" body length.

    Attaching the heads are easy, we include instructions with each purchase. We like to attach our heads with a 1/4" X 20 T-nut. The machine thread matches factory eye bolts as supplied by decoy companies such as Herters and Restle. (T-nut not included)

    Our threaded inserts make it easy to attached these replacement decoy heads to various decoy bodies. Outside is course thread, inside is a 1/4-20" thread to accept a standard 1/4" eye bolt. Please click here to purchase threaded inserts.
