Calling All Duck Hunters!

[slideshow_deploy id=’67593′]

Hunting for ducks may not be easy; however, at Kittle’s Outdoor Sports Co. it just got a little bit easier – that is if you’re searching for antique duck decoys.

Hosting a silent auction for the Colusa County Arts Council, where shoppers can bid on the unique selection of antique wooden duck decoys; purchasing not only a treasure of the Sacramento Valley, but helping support the arts.

“The ducks were donated to us by Jeanne Cave,” said Colusa County Arts Council volunteer, Michele Etchepare.

Jeanne Cave was the manager of the Pioneer Duck Club in Colusa; it was at the duck club where she met her husband and found her love of the land. It is said that Jeanne was an avid supporter of the arts. Jeannie passed away in March of 2014.

“We were very fortunate to have over 20 decoys donated to the arts council from Jeanne,” said Etchepare.

The proceeds from the silent auction will help keep the Colusa County Arts Council funded for the next year.

“We are a non-profit organization, and this will help keep our doors open,” said Etchepare, “We are very thankful that Kittle allowed us to have our display in the store.”

Located at the rear of the store, several antique wooden duck decoys will be available to the highest bidder – bids start at $75.

“For collectors this is a real deal,” said Pat Kittle, owner of Kittles Outdoor Sport Co., “some of the decoys have square nails that can easily date the decoys in the 1800’s.”

Kittle also commented that he would pass along a special deal to customers who placed a bid.

Anyone interested in the decoys are welcomed visit Kittles Outdoor Sports Co. during normal business hours.
