Root head Decoy | Mayo Family History

Harker's Island Decoy Contest

My daddy is so proud of this Pamlico County root head decoy that has been in our family since 1881, the history of the bird is below.

It won "People's Choice" in the Harker's Island Decoy Contest although it didn't fit in any of the 10 categories that you could enter your decoy in, the judges liked it enough they gave it a blue ribbon.  Made my daddy pants happy, it's truly one of a kind!!
