Their meat and feathers filled specific desires from food to fashion statements.These waterfowl also inspired artisans and artists alike with their demeanor and plumage. Hunters adapted these art forms using handcrafted decoys, wooden duck calls and ornate shotguns. The exhibit reveals how water fowling is an old game, with a rich heritage.
