"Good Trade"
A while back Chuck Jagger and myself struck a trade deal, custom carving knives for a custom carved decoy. Sounded fair enough at the time, but now I am not sure.

I sure hope Chuck is as happy with my knives as he claims to be, because if he isn't, then he got the short end of the deal.

I can tell that Chuck takes pride in what he makes. If the ducks like this decoy as well as I, then they are going to be in serious trouble.

Thanks Chuck, for a "good trade".

In that case, I'll add it to the jerk string. Besides, from what I hear, you shoot like your father. (hope he reads this.)

That decoy looks great Chuck!! You must make some nice knives as well Dave. The sign of a good trade is when both of you think the other got the short end of the stick. Good addition to your rig for sure.

Yup, and it is a heck of a lot easier to crank out another decoy than learn to make good knives.

At least he remembered to load the gun!
