North Idaho Ingenuity

Postby RowdyGSP » Sun Mar 04, 2018 8:50 pm

You might be a redneck if your decoy weights look like this... I had two lonely drake wigeon decoys that had no weights on them. I had the decoys and Tanglefree line, but no weights left. So, I took the two plastic ducks down to my work bench to see what I could come up with. Here are the results. I am sure everyone is going to be asking if I am selling these top-of-the-line weights and I can assure you that production for public sale is already in the works and I will have plenty available before October. 100% custom decoy weights in the sense that no two weights look exactly alike or weigh exactly the same. Taking orders now.

Heck yeah! I have several goose decoys weighted with rebar I welded together and some with old widow weights I cut down to size. Yeah to hell with paying $2 a piece for 4 oz lead sinkers in town.

Nice work! We can work out a trade decoy weights for a duck plucker/ skinner/juicer!
Before I got weights for all mine I would have one Texas rigged with the next one daisy chained to it.

No way I want a part of that plucker/skinner apparatus of yours! My fingers have enough to worry about with conibears, without throwing in that death machine of yours into the mix.

I trimmed them plucking fingers down an inch and a half and she tamed right down. Now you might only lose the odd fingernail now and again.
