Myran Willis decoys have exceptional form and flare in the tails that show the influence of George Washington O'Neal, both of which were associated with the Gooseville Gun Club. The angular, leaning heads that Myran carved make his brant stand out.

Old gunning paint, working repair to the neck, multiple age checks in the body, blunted bill.
