Whether you are an experienced or novice carver, hunter, or a collector, our Greenwing Teal Decoy Kit provides what you need to make your own decoy. The pattern is especially designed so that it can be used to make either a drake or a hen, a floater or a shelf bird, and where the cutouts are select White Pine, the simplest carving tools will do.
