John Wrote: "I got started with an intrest in Duck decoys besause of my passion for hunting
Ducks and Geese. I took some Duck decoy carving classes from Wildlife artist and
carver Clark Sullivan. (Wildlife wood carvers) TV series. I have just in the past
year started carving Fish decoys and have a difficult time putting one down
after i start it. I am trying differnt ways of painting ,fin placement and
materials, but I am in need of info on proper weight placement."
John wrote: "I started out carving duck decoys a few years ago and recently got interested
in fish decoys, jigging sticks and spearing. I look at other carvers work,read
articles on the subject. I am currently not a member of any Decoy organizations
but i plan to become one, I have also never been to a show or competed but i
would like to in the future.I am planning to attend the decoy show in West
Branch Michigan this April 2010."
John went on to say "I have also dabbled in Taxidermy mostly Birds and Fish,Painted on canvas mostly
wildlife and flowers,carved antler burrs and woodspirts on Cottonwood Bark"
