My son and I had a very memorable opening day hunt in Wisconsin around Prairie du Chien, Mike Valley’s home town. Marty Hanson and Mike Borrett were there as well. Mike’s real job is a commercial fisherman. We all are decoy collectors and carvers who have known each other for several years. We met at various decoy shows and formed a lasting friendships. We had a great hunt as well as a fabulous week-end. Borrett brought his hand made skiff with a muskrat that he had carved sitting on the bow. We all limited out both days and the nights, the nights were something to behold. We may have not drank all the beer in Wisconsin, but we had them up all night making more. This is a week-end that could never be duplicated.l have several decoys by both Mikes and Marty. All three are great carvers, a lot depends on their attitude at the time.

Might try and look up Dean Dashner...my wife bought a pair of Mike's cinnamon teal flyers when Dean was at one of the decoy contests.

He owns Hunting Rig Books...sells books (duh), decoys, calls, etc.

I have been to Dean’s parents house when Dean lived there before they passed. The whole Dashner family have a very nice collection of decoys and duck calls, of course very nice Wisconsin birds.

If you don't have your heart set on Cans; there's Widgeon, Blacks, Blue Wings and Blue Bills on Grant Cole's auction ending on the 28th of this month... Google "Michigan Auctioneers Inc."

Go to Mike Borrett‘s web site, he has contact information. I have misplaced Mike’s phone number. He is kinda of a shy guy and doesn’t give his number freely.
