    Looking through some old videos and pictures today from the 2012-2013 season. found these gems, my brothers one and only decoy he carved and the spear in the picture was my first pike spear that my Dad gave me, he had it around as long as I can remember. The pike was the first he took with his own decoy. The video is the field testing of the decoy on a different lake then where the pike was speared, lol!

    I took a chance and sent a decoy out to perham to compete in a folk art decoy class. It wasn't a complete shock to hear I didn't fair to well on the judging since I was competing against some pretty well decorated carvers. I have no regrets, the only way to learn is to try. IMG_2364.PNG

    Turned another tool this one is for marking out patterns, and cleaning out detail lines and scales after sealing lead cavities on Decoys.

    I’m guessing the sharp point would leave a nasty mark!!
