Coastal Carvers

Season 200 Episode 206 | 26m 12s | Video has closed captioning.

Wooden duck decoys have gained popularity in the last 30 years as both home decorations and treasures passed down from father to son or grandfather to grandson. On the North Carolina coast, however, boat and decoy carving has meant more than trinkets. Woodworkers carve decoys for a variety of reasons. Some still use them to hunt prey. Others enjoy recreating a part of nature.
