Founded in 1966 the Midwest Decoy Association has grown to over 1400 enthusiasts from all walks of life. Our members come from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, three Canadian provinces, England, Switzerland, Japan and Mexico. They write books on collecting, manage auction companies, publish magazines, carve world class decoys, calls and collectibles, provide appraisal services and form the core network of knowledge on sporting collectibles and their history.
The Midwest Decoy Collectors Association is a nonprofit, educational organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois. It invites membership to all persons. The purpose of Midwest Decoy Collectors is to foster the hobby of decoy collecting by attracting new collectors, seeking out and preserving old decoys, gathering data about carvers and their methods, and holding an annual show for decoy collectors and carvers.
