Roger Feuss was the favorite decoy speaker for the December meeting. He said he had a tough decision trying to decide which decoys to bring for his favorite three. But he eventually managed to make his choice.
The favorite three speaker for May was Joe Daly. The first decoy that Joe shared with us was a goldeneye made of white cedar from Delaware carver Ned Mayne. Joe said he got it at an auction in 1990 and he really likes it because it’s a beautifully painted gunning decoy.
George Rigby was the favorite three speaker for the March meeting. The first and second decoys that George showed were carved by his father George Rigby Senior. They were a pair of broadbills made of live cork with cedar heads.
Craig Kessler was the favorite three speaker for the April meeting, but he brought in four decoys to show and talk about. Craig says that he collects decoys because of personal value to him, not the financial value.
