Duck jacks are designed to provide light lifting power for small loads, such as carpet or roof shingles. Additionally, these versatile tools can also be used in light demolition work such as pulling carpet or pulling off tiles.
Wood ducks do not quack; rather, the female produces a harsh call while males produce an ascending finch-like call. Wood ducks are excellent swimmers and fast fliers.
Early Life and Education
The wood duck feeds in dense marshes, brushy swamps, woodland streams and shallow water areas. It probes shallow waters with its head to locate vegetative parts and seeds of arrow arum, various grasses and sedges, smartweeds, burreed, pondweeds and wild rice plants; while high-protein animal foods like mollusks, insects and spiders may also be consumed.
Even though Jack desired art, family tradition dictated military service instead. After World War II he entered the Marines, where he rose through ranks to become a decorated officer earning two Silver Stars for service in Korea despite serious machine gun fire injuries on Pork Chop Hill and severe injuries suffered while injured from machine gun fire during Korea. Once released from service he took up carving duck decoys – eventually giving up all their collection to Isle of Wight Museum.
The duck jack was widely considered one of the greatest carvers of lifelike waterfowl decoys and earned himself the Richard LeMaster Memorial Award in 1986 for his outstanding work.
He worked as a cartoonist for Egmont and often included references to Carl Barks’ originals in his stories. Additionally, he collaborated with writer/editors Stefan and Unn Printz-Pahlson on creating Oona from Prehistorica as an immigrant princess who came with Gyro’s time machine and ended up living in modern Duckburg.
Duck Jack has also made considerable strides toward wildlife conservation through his professional career, helping protect thousands of acres of wetlands that provide essential habitat for both waterfowl and humans.
