Many of the best carvers from Minnesota and the neighboring states were at the Runestone Community Center on Saturday afternoon to take part in the 10th annual Rudy Zwieg Decoy and Sporting Collectible Show.


The show is put on every year by the Mid-State chapter of the Minnesota Dark House and Angling Association. See Wednesday's Outdoor section of the Echo Press for a story on this year's Carver of the Year recipient, former Carlos resident Troy Helget.
