Decoy Duck with Brown Feathers

Decoy Duck with Brown Feathers


French Decoy Duck, hand carved & painted timber.

The decoy duck was used as a hunting tool, placed in a pond or lake, passing water fowl such as duck & geese would be tricked into thinking it was a safe place to land, this allowed the hunter a better range to capture the bird. The practice of using decoys in hunting goes back centuries.
