From Hilbert (Lake Winnebago area) one of the old timers. He carves coaxers (fish decoys)  He has several styles, his standard 12" sturgeon and you will know it by the grain of the wood (sumac) stands out in contrast to the white, green, yellow or red paint jobes. He used faceted glass beads for eyes and side decoration. He normally uses 3 fish at a time to attract sturgeon.
