THE BOOK BIRDS
COVER TO COVER
In 2003, the design of the logo for the Canadian Decoy and Outdoor Collectibles 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.
