Demetre Charalambous Morwell
Ever since I took up duck hunting I have needed decoys.
Plastic did not attract the wild ducks as quickly as decoys made of cork.
The reason for this was that they sat on the water a lot better than the plastic ones.
Cork decoys can be attached in four different positions so they can be arranged in such a way that the wild duck will pitch in a lot easier, especially if the decoys have duck wings attached on them from the previous year. My favourite decoy is the one I’m holding which is a Mountain duck.

Dale sent in a favourite photo of a decoy with a real life passenger which was taken by long time Field & Game member Rex Bramich. The photo was taken on a mobile phone and was too small to publish, but trust us, it was a beauty.
