Book Signing at Pacific Flyway Decoy Association Wildfowl Art Festival: A Photo Essay
The best part of our book tour is meeting and talking with so many friendly and interesting people. What an honor it was to be invited by the Pacific Flyway Decoy Association to hold a book signing at their wildfowl art festival in Sacramento as this fine organization celebrated its fiftieth anniversary!
Kathy and I also had the opportunity to meet some of the most talented wildlife artists in the country. We were in awe as we perused the gallery and watched these masters of their craft carve and delicately paint lifelike waterfowl, raptors, songbirds, and fish of all sizes and colors.
As if Saturday’s adventures weren’t enough, I was fortunate to win a drake pintail pickleweed decoy, carved by artist Roger Anderson, at the evening’s banquet. “Pickleweed” is carvers’ lingo for a decoy displaying just the head and upper body of a wild duck, as it might have appeared while hiding amongst the pickleweed that often blankets salt marshes and estuaries.
Thanks so much to our wonderful hosts and everyone who stopped by our table. We so appreciate your support and look forward to coming back next year!

Great to see you and Kathy being able to get out, meet the folks who read your books. Good to see you two having fun. While our new home is in Montana my roots are from Northern California where I grew up hunting and fishing. Your stories about the Outlaw groups slaying ducks and geese may have even involved some of my relatives. I really enjoy your writing and can’t wait until your next book is available.
Craig, you made my day! Thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate your taking the time to write.
Thank you for sharing this book signing with those of us who couldn’t attend. I’m anxiously awaiting your next book! 😍
It’s exciting that you won the pintail decoy! Congratulations!
Thank you so much, Kit! We always look forward to seeing you when you come to our events.
Great book, Steve. Sure wish we could have attended your book signing.
Thank you, Matt. I know you would have come if you weren’t three thousand miles away!
Always a pleasure to see you and Kathy, Steve! stay well my friend!
We really appreciate your kind words, Tony. Thank you. We look forward to our next visit!
