Hey Flipper whats your thoughts on using semi-matte poly-ureathane on duck decoys to give them a "shiny life-like apperance"? Saw this mentioned on a duck hunting video as one of their tips. What do you think? Will it help or will it flare ducks? You definetly have an eye for this kinda stuff and I value your opinion. Thank you very much! DD

IMHO, I would not want a shine on them. I have seen frost start melting on decoys when the sun hits them and they look like chrome. Ducks don't really shine, they have a sheen at certain angles when in the sun, but you would be making the whole thing look kind of un-natural. Paint one and look at it at different angles and see what you think.:Rich:
