This is Leboeuf at its finest! This decoy is in its original paint and comes complete with the original bottom weight and line tie. This decoy has definitely been lightly gunned, and would sure look great on the water! This is a very hard to find decoy in excellent condition, don't miss out on this rare opportunity!
In excellent plus plus condition. Lightly gunned but overall very nice with minimal wear from hunting use, see photos. It has a tight but stable neck crack that doesn't go the whole way through, likely grain separation, that doesn't detract from its appearance. Check out the photos for the best description!Please look over all the photos for a complete and sometimes clearer assessment of the decoys condition. I have tried to capture the true essence of the decoy with the photos, but please let me know if you would like any additional images. Please also remember that most of the decoys I list will be old working decoys that have been hunted, sometimes shot, and typically worn. I suggest a thorough vetting of the photos and the description to make sure the decoy is up to your requirements. A hunter on Lake Anicet, Leboeuf worked in construction and as a market hunter. Leboeuf decoys were made from cedar using basic hand tools to shape his bodies and heads. Using a penknife, Leboeuf carved in the feather detail on the back and the head of the decoy. His decoys are unmistakable and his painting skills were equally impressive to his carving detail.
Leboeuf carved many species, bluebills, goldeneyes, a few puddle ducks, anda few canvasbacks. This deocy is one of those rare cans!Thanks for your interest in my decoys. Please also feel free to ask questions as I want 100% satisfaction from all of my buyers.
