My wife and I were given a Shallbetter's 9" perch decoy as a wedding gift, which is incredibly fitting as dark house spearing is one of the many outdoor activities we share. Admittedly, I have not had the chance to use it in the water yet; however, the quality and paint and carving detail is second to none. I am blown away by how realistic it looks, I swear it could start flopping around at any second. Can't wait to use it this spearing season! Will definitely be ordering from Shallbetter's in the future.
CONGRATS to our brother Brian Shallbetter!! The crew from WCCO- TV | CBS Minnesota, "Finding MN" came to his house yesterday 2/18/2020 to interview him for his decoy carving and dark-house spearing! ☺️❤️🐟 (FYI: Brian Shallbetter is an alumni of the Mora High School Class of 1978) #FindingMinnesota #ShallbettersDecoys You can find more of his AMAZING work on his FB page, Shallbetter's Decoys https://www.facebook.com/Shallbettersdecoys/ Brian says, "Tune in your TV to WCCO Channel 4 this Sun. Feb 23rd at 10 PM news. WCCO came to my house and also spent time in my spear shack today filming me and my decoy carving for a segment called. “Finding Minnesota”. Sure was fun!"
I saw the article on you and your fish spearing decoys in DECOY MAGAZINE. Great work.
H.O.L.Y. H.O.L.Y. Here's some ingenious work in progress for the carving competition at The Gathering in Perham, MN on April 22nd and 23rd! Brian Shallbetter is an award winning artisan who makes some remarkable decoys. This guy has a passion for his work that is inspired by his sincere spirituality. Come out to the show to see his amazing work. Ain't nothin' better than Shallbetter's Decoys. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. DECOYS ARE ART!
