New information from Jeff Stary's new website located at www.starydecoys.com


Our history of decoy carving dates back to my great-uncle Elmer Speerschneider who began carving in the 1930's. Elmer, my grandfather, and my great-uncles used his decoys along with a large rig of factory decoys which eventually were all stolen. My dad Gary (1939- ) has been carving decoys since 1980. I began carving my first decoys in 1989. My son Mark (1991- ) and daughter Kristi (1988- ) have also done some carving and painting. We use our decoys on Lake Winnebago, Green Bay, the Fox River at Omro, Wisconsin and other areas. I am also an avid collector of Gust Nelow decoys
