Been fortunate to have grown up in a carving family – learning from my father Richard B. And my brother Rich W., I have been carving for most of my life.
Started making gunning decoys for my own rig, then rigs of other hunters..
Now I enjoy carving all birds. Have had good fortune to have done well in several competitions and really enjoy judging decoy contest. I have been teaching carving at the Ward Worlds , my home shop and lately been teaming up with my brother to teach. At this point in my carving career I can’t believe what blessing this art form has had on my life.
