Default World Champion ;o)

Our own Foodplotdude pulled out a win in the contemporary gunner division of the world champion duck carving convention. Thats pretty cool, he can plant a food plot, drive a tractor and carve an awesome Red Head. They actually stick them in a tank and the judges watch how they look bouncing around together. Congratulations Dude, special talent among us

Great job. If I tried to make that it would look like a crow which died of West Nile virus!
Congrats,

Holy Cheese Cow I had not idea you posted this Phil! Thank you very much!!

Carving decoys has been a true love of mine for 33 years and it is a burning passion of mine. Now that I am almost 45 years old I can honestly say that Redhead was the first bird I carved and painted with the use of my cheater glasses! I never realized how out of focus my eyes were until I started focusing on close objects other than print.

Thanks for all the kind comments everyone. I was stoked when they put a blue on him!
