About Duck Hunting Decoys
Few things are more fun for a duck hunter than fooling a bunch of ducks into thinking his duck decoys are the real deal. After crouching in the reeds, making duck sounds, and pulling a string to make his fake duck move, the hunter is rewarded with a point-blank shot. The difference between a successful duck hunt and one that requires a lot of setup for little or no benefit is the quality of the duck decoy. Modern decoys, like Ducks Unlimited decoys, are made from plastic, but those who like to do things the traditional way use wooden decoys. Others do not hunt ducks at all but collect vintage and antique duck decoys because they appreciate the time and effort that go into carefully crafting wood into a shape that a bird mistakes for one of its own species. Both hunters and collectors can find a large selection of duck decoys of all types on eBay, including vintage and brand new items.
