I’d say bring the decoys while you’re at it.

Fridge…I brought the decoys to a show one time and got tires of telling people they were not for sale… made them when I was a little kid in the 1950’s….so I just leave them at home. I would never consider selling them unless someone wants to offer an outrageous amount.

Ken…what did you end up making with your sinker cypress?

Thanks Monte…!

You made those decoys when you were “a little kid”? I knew you were gifted!

Andy…I don’t know if I would call mw gifted…they are very basic at best but were fun to make. I grew up in an family environment of fishing and hunting with my Dad, Uncle and Grandpa as inspiration. What really impresses me are the decoy and duck carvers who create wild life that looks outrageously lifelike.

I have a carved /painted Loon that a friend made that looks alive. But I think I like your decoys just as much and you were just a kid! Probably did the whole thing with your pocketknife too!
