Having won numerous awards for his gunning stool duck and shorebird decoys in carving competitions on the East Coast has further established his reputation.

Trained in the art of woodworking by his father, the late Vern Berg, Vic has been carving since 1980. As a hunting and fishing guide, he spends invaluable time afield yielding “hands on” experience in a coastal environment. Vic taught Ellen to carve in 1986. A former intensive care nurse, she has adapted her acquired skills to aid in the organization of a successful waterfowl and fishing guide service. She specializes in carving a wide variety of shorebirds, songbirds, and miniatures. She has won awards for her hinged shorebird rigs and assorted shorebirds in competitions throughout the East Coast.
Vic and Ellen are always happy to do custom orders and will work with you designing and displaying a wide variety of carvings.
