Cool video Rick, that man is one of my favorite old time carvers, Joe Lincoln,

A real interesting man. Love to read about him and his decoys.

I was wondering what their 'hatchets' looked like...that was a freaking full sized axe he was swinging with one hand...and taking off big chunks too.
...just a drop of water in an endless sea

Yup, that's Joseph W. Lincoln, 1859-1938. My favorite decoy carver of All time. Thanks for the video I really enjoyed it! Cap Vinal's book is a must read for all who admire the man and his work. You name it and he made it, all in that little shed. Rode a bike everywhere. His canvas decoys are killers, especially the ones that floated on their own. How would you like to have that rig of Canada's behind him, or that Merganser? The man was a American Master.

loved the end shots of the coot parade, and the scaup bombardment run! Hey, Didn't Mr. Lincoln live in Mbooty?
