A century ago, great flocks of waterfowl darkened the skies, and duck hunting had primarily one purpose: to put food on the table. It was an era when such carvers as Nathan Cobb, Elmer Crowell, and Harry V.N. Shourds created decoys, not for the sake of art, but simply to help harvest food. In Making Decoys, authors Grayson Chesser and Curtis Badger help you perpetuate the tradition started by these old-time carvers by teaching you to hand make the simple yet functional decoys of yesteryear. They provide detailed, step-by-step instructions, numerous color and black-and-white photographs, and the basic techniques necessary to make gunning decoys. This book is being published in conjunction with the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.
