This Sink Box Decoy has a rather unique Folky Art look to it. Just don't see many of these Old Working Cast Iron Eider Sink Box decoys around. It consists of a weighted, partially submerged enclosure large enough to hold one or. More hunters and suspended from a floating platform.It is placed into calm water so that the hunter may wait with the waterline at approximately shoulder height. The cast iron sink box duck decoys were placed around the edges of the sink box boat to keep it submerged into the water. I've included a vintage photo showing a hunter in a sink box boat for reference. In 1918 below-waterline hunting was banned in the United States by authority of the U.
Secretary of the Interior with the passage of the. Migratory Bird Act of 1918.Please review the many photos to determine condition.
