WHY WOULD I HELP SO MANY PEOPLE EVERY DAY YOU ASK. WELL I HAVE GREAT PASSION FOR ALL ANTIQUE DECOYS AND THE AMAZING HISTORY THEY CARRY.
With your help we can turn over every old duck boat, look in every old gunnysack, dig through the rafters in the old barns, basements of old houses and even look in your living room where a treasured family decoy may live.
If you are or know anyone from a life time antique dealer, an American Picker, Canadian Picker, Antiques Roardshow viewer, a seasoned outdoorsmen (person), a young duck hunter or someone you know may that now just dreams of the early days of hunting, if you appreciate wildlife and wildlife art, if you love yard sale, estate sales, thrift stores or antique shops, you can help by shooting me a pic of any decoys you see, to what they be worth thousands.
Most of us know someone that use to hunt.
IF YOU ARE A SENIOR DOWN SIZING
Most of us know someone that has a cottage or camp somewhere in North America even other parts of the world that may have one or two or hundreds of old decoys.
Many of these old wooden birds are extremely valuable and I am willing to help you understand not only the value but the History of your decoys, all for the pleasure and passion of studying old decoys.
Please, if you have decoys or know anybody anywhere that has old wooden decoys, please send me a picture and I'll be happy to give you information on them and a free appraisal.
My primary interest and passion is preserving, studying and documenting them and finding a magnificent home for them in a museum or collection that is on public display if required if required.
Thank you for your time and I hope you get to enjoy the great outdoors , as I have, and please help others in your way, as I do threw decoys and my career in health-care
