Loon Lake Decoy Company artists have been skillfully handcrafting wildlife sculptures following a tradition started hundreds of years ago by America’s first waterfowl hunters. Loon Lake Decoy Company’s goal is to provide you with the finest handcrafted, hand-painted life-size duck decoys
and customer service available today. Loon Lake Decoy Company sculptures start as an original wood carving from solid Tupelo Gum by Master Carver Sam Nottleman. Casting molds are made from Sam’s originals, from these molds each sculpture is then hand-cast. We use a variety of casts to ensure that we capture every detail of the original handcarving. After finishing the raw sculpture, our staff of talented artists individually hand-paint each one, again making sure every detail of the original is passed on to each reproduction. When completed, a Certificate of Authenticity is applied. The Certificate of Authenticity features the limited edition number of the sculpture, insuring each will become a treasured family heirloom.
