(ON THE COVER):Minnesota is informally known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” but its nickname could have as

Minnesota decoys will be the featured exhibit at the North American Vintage Decoy & Sporting Collectibles Show at the Pheasant Run Resort on April 22-23, 2016, where about 40 of the state’s finest hunting decoys by its most talented makers will be on display.
