I’m R.K. Smoker...but, everyone calls me Ross. I started carving with my brother Rich W. and my father Richard B. in 1980 when I was 17 years old, making gunning decoy rigs.

I enjoy teaching woodcarving to students
at the Ward Museum, Windward Studios,
Kettle Creek Lodge in Potter County, PA,
and near my home in Selinsgrove, PA, where
I live with my wife, Sue, and our dogs, 
Chanie & Zigar. If you’re interested in my
