Hi All,

This is the latest addition to my Bundy Duck Collection. This is the first duck with this type of finish that I have added to my collection.

I have seen searching for this type of duck for a while, but the ones that I have seen for sale are virtually destroyed or the price was way more than I wanted to pay for it.

I just ran accross this one on the internet and it arrived today.

This one is called a Medium Size Country Wood Duck.

I spoke to John Bundy and he told me that this duck was made in the early 1980's. He also told me that the duck is still being made today, but the pattern has changed, some what over the years, especially on the head.

On this duck, he suggested we just leave it as is and not try to restore it, because it was in such nice shape for being over 34 years old.

Thanks for looking,

Stu

__________________________________________________________________________

I thought I would share this Flea Market find with you….

For the past several years I have buying wood duck decoys at flea markets, garage sales, yard sales and thrift shops.

I have purchased about 25 of them so far and don’t spend more than $5.00 a piece for them.....Matter a fact most of them have been in the one to two dollar price range.

To be absolutely honest, I know nothing about Wood Decoy’s.

I just like the way the look out on display......

A week ago I went to one of the larger out door flea markets in my area.

One of the things I have learned over the years, about flea marketing is that you have to find the area of the market where the newbie’s set up (first timers).

Because most Markets have their steady professionals and they have the same stuff all the time and any new stuff they run across is always way over priced.

As we were walking around, my wife was a few tables in front of me and waved me over to the table she was at.

I went over to the table and it was a newbie…His first time at a flea market….

He really didn’t have a lot of stuff out, but setting out on the front of the table was a pair of decoys.

At first glance, they looked like they where plastic, but when I picked them up I realized that they where wood.

One duck had a full branded logo on the bottom and the other had an initial’s branded in.

As I said I know nothing about decoys and I have not run across any decoys like this before.

I ask the gentlemen what he wanted for them and he told me $20.00 for the pair.

He indicated that they had been in his family for a long time and that it was time for them to go to a new home.

Being the frugal (cheap) buyer that I am and the fact that I wanted to stay at my $5.00 maximum, I offered him $10.00 for the pair.

To my surprise he took the offer and bagged up the ducks for me and I took them home…

On the way home I was really wondering what they could be worth…Maybe $40.00, $50.00 each?

When I got home, I googled the manufactures name that was on the bottom ‘John Bundy & Company’…

To my surprise, their website popped up.

As I surfed thru the web site, I really started to get excited. There where 100’s of decoy’s listed for sale and they where priced from $195.00 to $495.00 each…

Wow what a home run…

But I didn’t see any pictures of the ones that I had brought..

So I sent an email to the company along with some photo’s of the decoys and indicated that I would call him on Monday…

When we spoke on the phone I was surprised to learn that the company has been making these decoys since the 60’s.

He told me that the decoy with the Gold Eye was a Lesser Scaup and was one of his favorite carvings. When he first offered this decoy for sale, his customers told him that the color of the eye was supposed to be Brown. So he only made a few of the ones with the Gold Eye, before for he switched to the Brown Eyes. He indicated that it was a very rare piece…

The second decoy was a Bufflehead that was made in the early 80’s. This was the first Bundy Decoy to be selected to be come a National Piece for the Ducks Unlimited for 1985/86. The ducks where ordered with the special DU brand. He indicated that they raised a lot of money for the Ducks Unlimited Program. Exactly 4000 of these ducks where produced for Ducks Unlimited. They where not allowed to make this same decoy again, for at least 10 years. The one that I have is an original decoy and not the DU model. He indicated that there where not many made in the 80’s when he first offered the duck for sale.

So here you have it….A great flea market find for $10.00..

Hope you enjoyed the story….

Snorric,

Yes I am well aware that these are decorative decoys and not working ones. Vintage working decoys are very difficult to find for under $5.00..

Cubancigar,

Your welcome, I am sure...

Watch for these decoys. They are original decoratives and valued at about $900 each. Called by the maker's name, "Borretts". But in 2007 the originals got farmed out to China and replicated. the replicas can be had for about $250 each.

The wood ducks hang above my desk (and are dusty)

here are a couple more decoys

I bought this decoy for likely $25 at a antique mall sstore. It was painted all black. I bought it on a lark. I got it home, make a cocktail and used some paint thinner to remove a bit of the black and found this original paint underneath. But the story does ntoi end there. A year or so later (prob around '93 I was traveling to Krieghoff in PA to get my release trigger adjsuted on my ill-fated K80 and stopped at an antique store near ottsville. The store was closed bu tin the window was this exact smae bird that had been replicated and made inot a decorative. About a yar later I found the same decorative bird at a auction and bought it and another replicated decoy. I have tried to find the maker of this bird but unsuccessful. One of my proudest decoys simply because of all the histroy that goes with it.

Another

I have this stuff all around my house, on top of things, under beds, in closets. I swear the stuff grows in number as I often find things I forgot I have. i have a duck call collection that numbers 100+. MOst old, but new contest duck calls are very valuable as well.

To this day it amazes me that every time I put a post up about an item or two, that you can come up with a complete pristine collection of that item, that you own...

Wow!

Is there anything that you don't have?

Thanks for posting this pictures....

You have some really neat decoys there...

Good luck at your shoot this week...

You go to the flea market, go to the newby section because they don't know what they are doing, claim innocence of knowledge, offer the man half of what he is asking, which already is to low. Then come on here a brag about the value of the items you got for next to nothing.

To me that is taking advantage of your fellow man.

I am a bit of a collector of old decoys. The famous Ward brothers are native to my home town. And I have some of their work. My wife's grandfather was a noted east coast waterfoul carver and worked with the Wards. He was Lloyd Tyler. Henry Stansbury wrote a book about him. I have about 50 carvings here from Tyler, Ward, Cigar Daisey, Pettit, Root and others. Collecting decoys is a faninating hobby and an extention of shotgunning. The hobby takes me back to my childhood when I spent much of my free time in the marsh with a rig of "store bought" 'coys and my shotgun bring home many ducks and geese for the dinner table. I still have my "gunning" skiff and every now and then I find time to again roam the marsh and relive part of my childhood.

"You go to the flea market, go to the newby section because they don't know what they are doing"

No, he said he goes there because the regulars are overpriced.

"claim innocence of knowledge"

I have no reason to think the OP is lying about his lack of expertise.

"offer the man half of what he is asking"

SOP at a flea market

"which already is to low."

A quick search of Bundy decoys on ebay indicates that they are selling for between $20 and $40. So the OP didn't exactly make a killing and the seller didn't lose the family fortune either.

MDMike. Yes those are what most collectors year for. post a pic or two and I'll do the same. It will be fun. My collection is eclectic. I have a couple of minor Wards but decoys across a varied spectrum. Canada, Illinios river, and other flyways. I have a half dozen Bob White birds... Bob from the Chesapeake. One of my fave carvers was a oil painter by vocation from southern WI. He carved dioramas and plaques of fish to educate his grand kids. Some of that is stunning. I'll get me camera warmed up.

Jack

This is a "W D Allen". He carved "Delaware River birds.

This is a Nichol pair of Woodies. From Canada

I have 7 or 8 Haertels. Are you familiar with him as a carver? He did working birds at first and then decoratives. I'll get some pics of that too.

MIA, I see that you have an eye for carvings as well. My wife collects old oyster cans. While I'm familar with some of the work of Allen, I don't have any of his work. Now Haertels is not one that I'm knowledgeable about. As an aside, one of my older brothers was Lem and Steve Wards paperboy (when papers were delivered). The Ward brothers used to come in my hardware store. There is a dealer in Easton that run an auction of decoys once a year. Guyette and some other name comes to mind. They contact me about every 3 years wanting to know if I want to sell or auction anything. They've been here to the house and according to their assessment, I have more in decoys than I have in guns. They valued one of my Ward carvings at an unbelievable figure (believe me, it was a load, I don't want to say in an open forum). It was hard for me to believe until they showed me previous auction results. I love collecting this kind of stuff.

Hi All,

Those of you that know me, know that I normally do not respond to negative remarks on my threads, it's basically a waste of my time and the time of the rest of the members of this great forum, but I felt the need to say somethimg about this one.

What is so interesting about this site, is there is allways one or two people that have to chime in on a thread, which they have absolutley no interest in, or have no knowledge of what is being disgussed and try to start a pissing match.

I guess they have to see thier name up in lights, be regonized, or what ever,..Or don't have anything better to do...

But as you can see, there is a lot of interest in the subject of Decoy's and from the comments and pictures that have posted, I am learning a lot about Decoy's...

I guess it's the freedom of speech, but I would prefer, if you are going to respond to this thread, please post more pictures and information about Decoy's....I find it a fasinating subject... I would like to learn as much as I can about them...

Just my humble opinion....

Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

Have been collecting duck decoys and calls for forty years. Even migrated with the ducks in the central flyway for four months in 1980 from Canada to Texas.

Here is a DU collector call made by Joe Bucher.

This was the very first of five he would produce in limited numbers for DU.

Some bands and working calls I used.

Doc,

I don't own any duck calls, but do run accross them every once in a while.

What should I look for in duck calls and what are the most collectable ones?

What is the price range of the average collectable calls?

Oh My, another item to add to my collection!

I am running out of room, but it looks these duck calls won't take up too much space..

Thanks,

Stu

Stu,

I think the best place to start is to pick up one of the books available that give values and history pertaining to early calls. If you go for the very early calls, prepare to spend some money!

I would recommend that you start slow and just pick up less expensive calls that you run across at flea markets and gun shows. These will range anywhere from a couple of dollars to fifty dollars.

I am partial to the old metal reed calls produced in the early 1900's from the Reelfoot Lake Region. The "Reelfoot" style of calling is unique to that region and in my opinion one of the most difficult to master. I grew up blowing "raspy hen" style but absolutely fell in love the very first time I hunted Reelfoot. A "Reelfoot Highball" is a symphony of some twenty or more high pitched highball notes before the wind down. A metal reed call in the hands of some of those old timers in that area is something to behold.

As far as collecting calls, it can become a sickness. I have over three hundred and there is no end in sight.

Stu, you could pursue a lot worse regarding sporting collectibles.

Have fun with it and learn as you go.

Doc

Boy I am glade I did....

Thanks for looking....

I will see if I have a picture of the one you wanted to see that I bought. It is signed and I do not have a picture of the bottom. Is a STONEY POINT MFG. from OAK HILL VA.. 1985 by James A. Gessner, or simular to that, as it is signed in script.

Ray,

I understand what you are saying about the refinishing of these ducks...

When I purchase an item, of course a look at what the value would be, but in all my collectables I prefer to have everything in pristine condition.

If you look at my Shotgun Collection, you will see that there are several older shotguns that I had restored over the years.

I have been told several times that you should not restore these guns, but just leave them alone...

I had the shotguns restored so they will last for generations to come and to preserve them. I have no intentions of selling my collection, it will be handed down to the next generation of Gabriel's..

As far as the ducks are concerned, I had a lengthy conversation with John Bundy about the pros and cons of restoreing these ducks...

He said restoring these ducks will not hurt the value, but in most cases it will increase the value, because he is the one who is restoring the ducks back to there original condition...

Thanks....

Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

The letters in the frames are a brief history of The Bundy Duck Company...

Plus John Bundy verified the first two ducks I purchased, when they where made and when he restored them.

Also it includes a brief history about the Ducks that John made for Ducks Unlimited Organization and when Ducks Unlimited decided to have all of thier ducks made in China instead of here in the good old USA!...

A very interesting story...

I see nothing wrong with haggling for a lower price. A buyer may only want to go so far and a seller can always say no, which they do sometimes. If I am not willing to give the asking price and a seller won't budge on price, I still have my cash and can continue to look. Its not the kill but the thrill of the chase afterall.

It basically comes down to what is the value of the item between a willing seller and buyer. However, if you sell without doing a little research (considering how much information is out there via books and the internet, and you get screwed or sell too cheap), it seems that it is the fault or desire of the seller, not the buyer. Remember, NO is a single sylable word, and possibly the easiest word in the English language to say.

Hello All,

Looks like the prices on these Bundy ducks are on the rise. When I first got interested in collecting them about a year ago, I was able to snag quite a few on Ebay for $15.00 to $20.00 price range. Now they are asking any where from $65.00 to $150.00 for them depending apon thier condition an what size they are.

Just an interesting observation,

OK. I'm wasting the day away drinking wine to get away from the recent cataract surgery... So here we go with a small segment that is "just around". My brain is too foggy to come up with the story behind these decoys... But I'll focus better over the next two weeks when I get this eye stuff behind me...

I was given these (for a pittance sum) by Terry Worley. Terry hunted the St Clair Flats for ducks and decoys for 30 years. Some of you that frequented Vandalia in the 80s and early 90s will remember a fellow (kinda portly) that sold Redlins about halfway down the east end. He had an art shop in a nearby town and brought the Redlins to the grand to sell. We struck it off and he sold me these as a favor. These are composite birds, constructed by 2 carvers. Very rare. Modestly valuable. Never used.

I've been into decoy carving for some time now---Find it very relaxing in the winter months and more so than trying to reach the 27yd line---Here are a couple---A Green Wing Teal hen and Canvasback Drake---Maybe this will get someone interested in carving----Best way to get the bug is to subsribe to Wildfowl Carving Magazine---Mechanicburg,Pa 17055---Phone# 877 762 8034---

Happy Easter---George@SJB
