Welcome to Lucky 17
Hand Carved Decoys

first-set Lucky 17 was founded in November of 2013 after its carver, Brent Hood, decided to take a head carving class at the Core Sound Decoy Guild at Harkers Island, NC.

Hood still considers himself to be a rookie, but continues learning the craft. He has always admired the Core Sound hunting style decoy for its simplicity and minimalist elegance. With that, his current decoy carving is strictly in the traditional Core Sound style.

In memory of Matthew Cullen Hood.

In memory of Robert Kent Hood,
January 17, 1965-July 16, 2012.
