Thanks! The widgeon was the first deke I ever entered at a competition in Ocean City, MD. Got DQd when it didn't self right. Also neck is too long and looks alert instead of relaxed. Live and learn.

The only competition I ever entered, mine was the first bird out of the tank, not because it didn't right itself, but because it was ugly (and hasn't gotten any prettier sitting on a shelf in my cabin)

In fact all the dekes in this post are nice. I've always had a liking for the antiques. I've carved a few fakes and I like the challenge involved in aging them. Using period correct nails, shooting them and trying to simulate decades of wear is an art. There are some who have mastered it but of course there methods are closely held secrets.
