CANADIAN DECOY & OUTDOOR COLLECTIBLES ASSOCIATION 

Dedicated to fostering knowledge and interest in Canadian decoys and outdoor collectibles.

 

 Logo History

In 2003, the design of the logo for the Canadian Decoy and Outdoor Collectible Association evolved towards the use of a decoy silhouette that would be easily recognizable as a Canadian decoy. 

 

The choice of using a Chambers wood duck was selected because of a record setting auction. 

 

A Chambers wood duck, one of only two known, sold at a Guyette and Schmidt St. Charles Auction in 2004 for the unheard price of $187,000 USD, setting a record at the time for a Canadian decoy. 

 

The choice of this decoy for our logo was further elevated by the sale in July 2017 of the second Chamber's wood duck for well over one third of a million Canadian dollars. 

 

This duck is among the most coveted of all Canadian decoys.  We are proud to have this truly magnificent bird represent our association.

CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19

The Bowmanville Antique & Folk Art Show and The Canadian Decoy & Outdoor Collectibles Association have the pleasure to introduce the theme for this year’s 2020 event display - THE BOOK BIRDS!

Canada’s historic hunting lures are prized as painted sculptures by Canadian and international collectors alike.

A select few have been featured on the covers of books as the finest examples of our folk art heritage. 

The Canadian Decoy & Outdoor Collectibles Association (CDOCA) has assembled one of the most impressive flocks of Ontario, Quebec and Maritime decoys ever to be showcased together. 

All are from private collections.  Many haven’t been exhibited before. 

 

The curated BOOK BIRDS display is another alluring reason to take the Lake Ontario flyway to the Bowmanville Antique & Folk Art Show,

April 10 - 11, 2020.
