Once in a great while you can come up with a pattern you like the very first time, but frankly, chances are not in your favor. We’ve been there. We developed our patterns over the years and offer them so that you can get started right away rather than having to go through the process of developing your own. Except where otherwise noted, these are patterns for lifesized birds, and include both males and females where they differ. Decoys made from these patterns work, in the field and in competition.
This complete set of patterns includes: our Generic Shorebird (Peep), Miniature Realistic Black Duck, Bufflehead, Seal Island Puffin, Bluebill, Mallard/Black Duck, Common Goldeneye, Harlequin, Greenwing Teal, Canada Goose, Oldsquaw, and Common Eider. Ordering all of them at once saves on the price over buying them individually and saves on postage as well. Also note that these are shipped rolled in a mailing tube, so there are no creases in the patterns–an important consideration for many carvers.
