Carvers from all around Minnesota came to the Runestone Community Center this past Saturday for the 10th annual Rudy Zwieg Decoy and Sporting Collectible Show.

Carvings like this one from Rudy Zwieg himself (above) were on hand. Almost all of Zwieg’s carvings are marked with the star around the fish’s eyes. Zwieg, an Alexandria native, was inducted into the fish decoy carvers Hall of Fame in 2003.

See today’s Outdoors section for a feature story on the carver of the year.
