He began carving in Havre de Grace, Maryland, at the age of nine and learned the art of decoy making in its truest form from R. He worked in Mitchell's decoy shop for over 25 years before opening a shop of his own. The Captain has spent all of his life on the Chesapeake Bay and Susquehanna Flats as a commercial waterman, hunting guide and charter boat captain. This close association with nature has given him first hand insight into the waterfowl world. Captain Harry's decoys have been featured in books and museums as well as numerous private collections across the country. The Captain and his wife Virginia, married July 22, 2006, reside in Maryland where their decoy shop is located. This is a Vintage Captain Harry Jobes Coot Duck Decoys Set of 6 All Signed.
