Duck Call Shadowboxes!

So we are going to the Ducks Unlimited Dinner & Auction tonight in Arnprior.  This will be our 3rd year, it is always a hoot.

We get an awesome dinner, check out the Silent Auction table filled with Ducks Unlimited prints and other cool things (last year I “won” a beautiful hammered copper platter which one of these days we will make some legs for to use as a side table… but right now we use it as a gong)  and then watch the exciting main event (and no I am not joking, it is very exciting, especially when one of your crew is in on it!) : the gun live auction.

So this year we finally got our act together to bring something to the auction table.

A buddy thought a shadowboxed duck call would be a great gift.  Jimmy ran with the idea.

This piece is just under 6″ x 11″– perfect for that small space in your Man Cave.

He bought two duck calls and has lovingly shadowboxed them.  Starting with custom holders for the calls (in an emergency duck call situation, just break glass and use) and using real duck blind material, these babies sport an Advantage Max 4 Camo background and our Museum glass.  They both have hanging hardware but will be displayed on Jimmy’s custom made easels.

This duck call is shadowboxed with a double thick raven black matting with rounded corners in our deep black shadowbox moulding.

Duck Calls!  In an emergency hunting situation, just break glass.
