The small town of Pascagoula, Mississippi, is known for its duck-decoy
manufacturing. Those who have lived here, including Joe Bosco, are no strangers
to its history and development. Born in Pascagoula, Bosco has always enjoyed the
sport of hunting and fishing. He quickly became intrigued with duck decoys, and
before long, he was collecting these interesting items.
Mr. Bosco researched the history and current status of duck-decoy
manufacturing, specifically the wooden decoys that are no longer in production.
He searched newspaper articles and old catalogs and interviewed former employees
and surviving relatives. After gathering a great deal of information, he decided
to compile the information into a book in which he describes all of the key
factors and manufacturing firms involved with the decoys, while providing a
helpful guide for today's collectors.
Currently living in Moss Point, Mississippi, Bosco continues to enjoy
hunting, fishing, and collecting Pascagoula decoys. He holds a bachelor's
degree in political science from Spring Hill College and a business degree from
the University of Southern Mississippi. He is also a member of Ducks Unlimited.
