Get ready for duck hunting this fall by giving a new paint job to those old duck decoys.
Every waterfowler is likely guilty of having a few bags full of beat-up old duck decoys in the shed; and once hunting season comes around you are too busy with all the other preparations to boats, blinds, decoy rigging, motion decoys and the other hundreds of tasks to bring those old mallards back to life.
Here is a simple paint project to knock off this summer that will only take a few supplies and you don’t have to be an art major to get it done.
There it is, a new paint job that might not be that finessed, but it is going to restore color and lustre back to those beat up old decoys and help draw in more birds from far off. My advice would be not to put all the re-paints out together but mix them into your spread with newer decoys just to have more of a real look to the overall layout.
Get some paint, pick a nice summer day, and get an assembly line out on the lawn to bring those gnarly old decoys back to life in vibrant color.
