Black Duck Decoy by
Gene Hendrickson


A early Black Duck decoy
that has a "sock" over it,
It looks to have some repaint
along with original paint. It
has a chip of wood off under
the bill. A early Hendrickson.

J. Eugene Hendrickson
(1899 - 1971) Northfield, New Jersey
Gene Hendrickson is remembered as
one of Northfield's most notable watermen.
He created decoys and hunting boats
("sneak boxes") of exceptional quality. His
decoys were carved from local white cedar.
The bodies are hollow, tails are long ending
in a point. Heads have detailed carved bills.
He often branded his birds on the bottom
with the initials, "J.E.H." Hendrickson
carved from patterns shared with
Mark Kern (1888 - 1972) another
well known Northfield carver. He
provided ballast by pouring hot lead
into an inlet he cut into the
bottom of the decoy in the
manner of Harry V. Shourds (1871 - 1920),
a regional carver of note. Hendrickson's
later decoys are somewhat larger
than life-size. He is credited
with having carved some very fine
Canada geese, brant, canvas back,
broadbill, red head, merganser,
black duck, mallard and pintail decoys.
