Loon Lake Decoy Company artists have been skillfully handcrafting wildlife sculptures following a tradition started hundreds of years ago by America’s first waterfowl hunters. Loon Lake Decoy Company’s goal is to provide you with the finest handcrafted, hand-painted wildlife sculptures and customer service available today. Loon Lake Decoy Company life-size duck decoys
start as an original wood carving from solid Tupelo Gum by Master Carver Sam Nottleman. Casting molds are made from Sam’s originals, from these molds each sculpture is then hand-cast. We use a variety of casts to ensure that we capture every detail of the original handcarving. After finishing the raw sculpture, our staff of talented artists individually hand-paint each one, again making sure every detail of the original is passed on to each reproduction. When completed, a Certificate of Authenticity is applied. The Certificate of Authenticity features the limited edition number of the sculpture, insuring each will become a treasured family heirloom.
Loon Lake Decoys Co. presents:Bufflehead
The Bufflehead is our smallest life-size duck decoy
diving duck. Mature males are strikingly patterned in black and white, females and first-year males are more drab, with dark areas sooty-gray or brownish rather than black, and the white areas duller and smaller in size than in adult males. Bufflehead males do not attain adult plumage until their second winter, and first breed when nearly two years old.
