Current Goal

Initial Mission: To travel the world visiting other carved duck decoys and/or people who carve ducks.

Updated Mission 2/25/15: RETURN TO MARYLAND, if possible for GeoWoodstock XIII GC54840. This TB is a bit big for most cache containers and I'm pleased that it has made it as far as it has!

Updated Mission 8/9/15: Decoy has arrived home!

 

 

About This Item

Decoy at launch

This is a hand carved duck given to me by a resident, who is now deceased, of the retirement community where I worked for 17 years (I retired from there). I thought it might be fun to make it a traveller so others might enjoy the work of this man, who signed his work on the bottom of the piece.
Here are some links to information about the history of decoy carving:
