Originally an ingenious tool used by hunters, duck decoys have undoubtedly been enlivening the cabinets, mantles, and nooks in countless getaways for generations. In the August 2012 issue ("Cabin Folk Art: Duck Decoys"), we gave you a brief history of these practical voices, as well as photos that prove hand-carved duck decoys are now an iconic American art form. Here is more information about the best contemporary carvers and collectors, along with bonus photos of their decoys. Enjoy!
