While I was prepping my decoys last night in the garage I stopped counting at about 13 dozen puddle duck ( mostly mallards with some pintails and blacks ) that I have accumulated over the years. As you might imagine a few of these have gotten in the way of some live ducks and taken some hits.

Having that many decoys I was just going to toss out the "wounded" decoys and not think twice about it but I figured why not see if some one would want these decoys to fix and use again???

I ended up having 13 "wounded" decoys (mostly mallards but a few blacks and pintails). They are G&H and Greenhead Gear by brand. They are in good shape other than some small holes and definitely (very easily) fixable with a little bit of caulk and some spare time. They have tangle free line and weights on them and come in a decoy bag that is in above average condition. Also I threw in seven more good decoys to fill the bag up.

As stated before they are free but I was just hoping a parent would take these, have their kids help fix them, and then take the kids hunting.

Send me a PM if interested.............

a noble gesture for sure - but how about letting a youngster have them? Help a kid get started in this great sport!:coolgleam

To "the dude" -

I'm not really sure where your coming from. If you read my second to last sentence I think my intent for them to go to a youngster is clear - how ever that happens. Perhaps I'm mis-interpreting this?

cnl,
Knowing the "dude" as I do, I'm sure you did misinterpret. As I am also sure he just didn't read to the bottom of your post. Nothing more, nothing started.

BTW nice gesture with the free decoys. I've done this before a few times myself. :)

yep - just skimmed that part :eek: - either way i didn't mean any disrespect. I was thinking there's plenty of teenagers getting started who don't hunt with a parent that would probably love to have them. In an extended family of upwards of 50 people.. i'm the only one who hunts - so at 16 when i was teaching myself this sport i remember how hard it was to come by all the tools of the trade!
Either way i'm sure they'll be put to good use! It's a very kind gesture to donate them and i commend you for that.
Take care

No disrespect taken - at all.

I think the misunderstanding just goes to show the kind of quality people on this forum and how dedicated we all are to getting youths involved.

As of right now the decoys are spoken for, if anything changes I'll contact the parties that expressed an interest and re-offer them.

Thanks for the responses.
