About Us

Wildfowl Carving Magazine is dedicated to the art of decoy and decorative bird carving. Published quarterly since its spring 1985 issue, the magazine is available by subscription and in some book stores. We are the only magazine for bird carvers. Readers turn to us for start-to-finish projects, fascinating profiles, and helpful patterns. Our informative articles cover a variety of topics, from how to design an effective carving to how to ship your work safely. Both novice and experienced carvers visit our pages for reference topics and detailed demonstrations, as well as tips and techniques from the world's best carvers. Decoys, songbirds, raptors—we cover it all!

In addition to the quarterly magazine, Wildfowl Carving Magazine publishes Competition—an annual roundup of winning work from carving competitions around the U.S., Canada, and Britain.
