1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Dear corkcan. as yo know, collecting decoys at low prices is as competitive as a singles event at Sparta. A lot of collectors know of my stuff, but they want me to give it to them at their concept of "top prices". Are you a St Charles Attendee? What part of the country do yo hail from? What you see is just a random sample of a 20 year collection. The damn things are everywhere. Jack

    Jeff. My birds are ringbills and done by a carver in MN near me. I have a pair of his cans andhe wants me to buy these.

    The redheads appear to be Delaware river region birds or Potomac River.Doggai thinks they are Wisconsin birds but I doubt that.

    Here are 4 Bob White birds. I have 2 other pair stashed somewhere.

    The cabinet contains some interesting birds.
