to Lakeside Decoys!
The carved decoy is the only truly
American Folk Art, for the Duck and Goose Decoy
as an aid to hunting was devised by the Native
American Indian as early as 1000 AD.
Using reeds and bulrushes they created the first
decoys. This in turn set the stage for early
Duck and Goose decoy carvers such as Perdew,
Crowell Elliston and many others to follow.
Those first decoys created Power and Magic --
today that magic is called art.
Here, in the Big Sky Country of
Chris Linn-Hatcher is proud to carry on that
same tradition and magic.
