It is not dated but the Company relocated to Manhattan, MT, from Boseman, MT, in 1987 so it must have been made after that time. The decoy is life size and in wonderful condition.

Big Sky Carvers Common Loon Decoy-Man Cave, Cabin, Lodge, or Den
This is a Common Loon made by Big Sky Carvers of Bozeman, Mt. It is signed on the bottom by its artist, Parke Goodman, and has the Big Sky Carvers Brand on the underneath. There is no date on the Loon but Big Sky Carvers moved their Company from Boseman to Manhattan, Mt, in 1987 so it must have been made prior to that date. The Loon Decoy is close to life size, maybe a bit smaller. It measures 16.5 inches from beak to tail. It is 5.25 inches wide and 6 inches tall. It weighs nearly 2 pounds. This Loon is typical of Big Sky Carvers Decoys in that it is made of pine, hand painted by a very talented artist, and makes a very handsome bird look so good. The paints and finishes they used allow the wood grain to show which adds to their beauty. The Company may still be in business but after an early focus on decorative decoys, they expanded to carvings of bears and other animals, furniture, and other items. If they are still making decoys, they most likely are made in Asia. In my view, the early decoys made in the 1980’s are high quality treasures done by outstanding artists from the local community. Please study the photos and see what you think. It is nearly perfect. We could find one very tiny dent and a couple of white spots on its back where the resin in the pine may have bled through the paint. If you, or a friend have a cabin by a lake that has loons calling, you need this guy to join in the fun. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Animals\Birds\Loons”. The seller is “435jamesp” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.

Big Sky Carvers Hindley Collection Mallard Drake Decorative Decoy-Man Cave, Cabi
This is a Big Sky Carvers Hindley Collection Mallard Drake Decorative Decoy. It is dated 8/30/04 but not signed by an artist nor is it numbered. Chris Hindley is a well known, creative carver, whose work tends to be a stylistic, sort of make believe representation. If you are not familiar with him be sure to do a google search and enjoy the images of his work. This decoy is a drake green head that appears to be resting on his breast, getting ready to preen his tail. It is close to life size, measuring 10 inches at its widest length. It weighs 2 pounds, 10 ounces. We have had a few Hindley Carvings, particularly his pheasants. One of my Hindley favorites was a Pintail Drake which one of our kids swiped from me. This decoy is near perfect but does have some small dents on both sides. I hope to sell it before it also disappears. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Animals\Birds\Ducks”. The seller is “435jamesp” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.

This is a Canvasback Drake Decorative Decoy carved by Big Sky Carvers of Boseman, Montana. It was hand painted by artist, Craig Fellows and is signed by him on the bottom but not dated. It has the Big Sky Carvers logo branded on the underneath also. The decoy is in very good condition but has a couple small dents on the beak and some slight marring, scratching on the sides so it is not perfect. It is typical of the early Big Sky Carvers Decoys in that it is finished with a combination of paints and stains that make an already stunning bird look even better. It is a bit larger that life size, measuring 17 inches long, 6.75 inches wide, and 9 inches tall. It weighs 4 pounds. Big Sky Carvers began making decorative decoys in the early 1980’s in Boseman, Montana, Later they moved to Manhattan, Montana a short distance away. The Company was very successful and their decoys were very well done and quite popular. They hired a number of local artists who were very skilled. Fellows is one of their highly regarded artists and rightly so. They may still continue to offer some decorative decoys, many of them made in Asia. We much prefer their earlier ones such as this guy. We invite you to look over the photos and make an offer. Even with a few minor issues it is a stunning work of art and they do not make them like this any longer.

This is a Big Sky Carvers Canadian Goose Decorative Decoy in a preening type of pose. It is signed on the bottom by T. Bouldin and has the Big Sky Carvers Brand on the bottom also. There is an anchor cord wrapped around its neck which has a lead anchor. It is not dated but earlier Big Sky Carver’s Decoys had a brand from Bozeman, MT, while this one is from Manhatten, Mt. We do not have a complete Big Sky Carver’s History but in the early 2000’s the Company Ownership changed and the brand may be from that time period. In any event it is a nicely done decoy and in very good condition. The photos are its best description. Note that it does have some slight marring on the lower right side. The Decoy measures 17 inches long, 6.25 inches wide and 8.5 inches tall. It weighs 5 pounds, 2 ounces including the attached lead anchor. We have loved Big Sky Carver Decoys and this one is a favorite. It is finished with paints and stains which allow the wood grain to show through plus has a very graceful, unusual pose. We could not find it being offered anywhere and invite your inspection and offer. It certainly would be a treasured addition to any collection of Big Sky Carver’s Decoys. Very carefully packed to protect that fragile neck. The item “Big Sky Carvers Preening Goose Decoy-Man Cave, Cabin, Lodge, Den Decor” is in sale since Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
