CLASSIC DECOYS OF WESTERN LAKE ERIE

The Lake Erie Islands Historical Society and Museum is excited to exhibit classic decoys of Western Lake Erie.

We have borrowed decoys and other Duck Hunting memorabilia from the most prominent private collectors of Ohio decoys. Winous Point Ottawa Shooting Club, DeMars, Toussaint, and other Sandusky Bay birds are represented in this exhibition.

Decoys from Monroe, Michigan to Sandusky Bay are among more than 125 birds in the exhibit.

 

Carvers in exhibition include:  Klopping, Rider, Hartung, Going, Pepper, Hauser, Vicary, Enright, Sharron, Yundt, Bracher, Gulau, and Redding among others.

Paintings by Osthaus and Machen and a fine selection of Ohio duck calls are also included in the show.  Large bore shotguns and a small gourd of decoratives are also on display.

The Museum is located in Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island, Ohio.
