Ira Schram was born in 1974 & Tonya in 1971 and they hail from Lake, Michigan. Ira wrote "
Ira started carving decoys in college when a friend asked him to carve a replica of a large brook trout, he had inadvertently eaten. Tonya started stealing Iras decoy blanks to make them prettier. It has now turned into a hobby our whole family gets involved in." Ira went on to say "
We have four kids, and the three youngest all have their own knives for carving".
