The use of duck decoys in hunting was developed thousands of years ago by native North Americans. The skill of decoy carving was later passed on to Europeans upon their arrival in North America. By the late 1980s and 1990s, hand-made and antique decoys became full-fledged collector's items. Some rare decoys, in fact, have been sold for upwards of a quarter of a million dollars. In The Decoy, Jim Poling, Sr. explores the history of these fascinating artifacts. The Decoy includes 40 full-colour images from the private, and never-before-seen, decoy collection of Peter Brown, and 25 images from two of North America's oldest and best known decoy companies: Blackwater Decoys and Loon Lake Decoys.
