A great state with a number of waterfowl. This Pennsylvania duck hunting forum is a great place to discuss hunting practices from all over the state.
I just got 6 vintage jhonston goose decoys. There not in
To bad of shape for how old they are. Can any one out there tell me some more about them. All I seem to come across is eBay sites and things like that. I beleive that they are from the 1030's or 40's.

Wow they must have been using spears to hunt back then,
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.
I love Geese

I think you are probably about right but maybe the 40's and 50's. They were the Original photographic goose decoys but in B&W rather than full color full. I have many vintage duck hunting magazines and all of em have ad's for Johnson's folding decoys. If I remember correctly you could buy 12 for about 20.00 or there about in the magazines I have. I have no doubt that they would still do a good job in the field even today. I have several dozen and have thought about running a spread with them some time, but I just don't want anything to happen to them. If you send me a pm with your name and address I will try to look back thru my magazines and send you a copy of one of the ad's..........
