The duck decoy carving program presented in partnership with Anoka County 4-H & volunteer Dave Jacobs, sponsored in part by the Minnesota Decoy Collectors Association and the MN Decoy and Wildlife Carving Club. As part of this program, youth will learn how to carve, then paint a duck decoy. The finished decoy can be used for hunting or as a piece of art to display.
The duck that we will be carving is the Wood duck.
Carving dates: Monday, September 11, 2023 - March 25, 2024 (no meetings Dec 25 or Jan 1)
