“I got started back in 1989 I’ve been spearing for about 17 years I’ve made decoys for mostly myself and I’ve gave some to a few friends and family. I don’t sign them I use melted down muzzle loader balls for lead and pine for wood. I use different types of eyes I carve them by hand and paint them by hand with a brush. There are never two of the same I’ve made many different sizes from 2” to 12”a lot of different colors.”
