Format:Hardcover
Burke's "Game Bird Carving" should be considered one of the all-time best how-to manuals. Informative, easy to read text, clear photographs, and most important; an easy to follow color blending method helps neophytes and experienced woodcarvers alike develop basic to advanced wildfowl carvings. As an instructor and carver for over twenty years, Game Bird Carving was the first carving book I bought. I still consider it a valuable reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game bird carving by Bruce Burke 21 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is really first class value. It is a bird carving course . I have purchased many carving books and this is one of my essentials. It covers carving , burning, painting, everything , Although some of the species are American , with a bit more research you have all the tools at your disposal for our own birds. A book that should be on every enthusiasts book shelf

5.0 out of 5 stars The decoy carvers "Bible" 15 April 2000
By Bill Humphreys - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The decoy carvers "Bible" just about sums up what can be said of this book. If you carve decorative wildfowl, songbirds, or hunting decoys you MUST have this book. I use this book every day in my shop and painting studio. I use it so much I bought an extra copy so I wouldn't have to carry it back and forth any longer. Perfect for the beginner, intermmediate, or advanced carver. Every professional carver that I'm aware of references this book. No book before or after has covered the art of the counterfit bird as comprehensively as this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old But Not Forgotten: Game Bird Carving with Bruce Burk 10 Jan 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Bruce Burk's "GAME BIRD CARVING..." explains the bird carving process in a detailed, logical and understandable sequence. It is well illustrated, but unfortunately all photos are black & white.
Another negative is the book's age, making a few of the procedures a bit dated by recent developments in materials.
Overall, however, the book remains a solid reference for the bird carver, worth purchasing for its historical and practical value including a thorough listing of gamebird dimensions (lengths, widths, wingspans, etc.) in the appendix.

Excellent book for both beginners and pros. I had an earlier copy of this book loaned it to somebody and was never retuned so because the book is so good I bought it again.

By the Lone Ranger - Published on Amazon.com

This book is a compilation of all his previous versions and has added an execellent more detailed segment on painting the birds. He has come up with an easy formula for mixing each of the colors used in painting the birds.
