38th Decoy & Gunning Show is CANCELED: A Virtual show including some 'non in-person contests' will be available

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we offering an online alternative to the Old Time Barnegat Bay Decoy & Gunning Show this year. Instead of visiting the show in person, please check out our Facebook and YouTube pages during the show weekend, September 26 & 27, for videos new and old, commentary and a few decoy contests.

Back in 1983, the show had its beginnings when a small group of decoy collectors began selling and trading decoys from the back of their pickup trucks. The gathering also included a few decoy carving contests. 38 years later, due to Covid-19, we will go back to our roots. No selling or vendors at the show this year but we will still have the core decoy carving contests which can be seen on our Facebook page on the weekend of the show. A list of vendors typically found at the show can be found on our website as well. We can’t wait to see you in person in 2021!!!
