The History of Water Fowl Hunting
And Decoy Making in Cape May County
Join us in viewing, "Went Agunning on the Meadow", an 18 minute documentary by film maker, Jim Talone and folk artist and historian, J.P. Hand. The film, (narrated by Hand) covers the history of water-fowling on the Jersey Cape and related industries; market hunting, tourism, and decoy making. The first Europeans settled in Cape May County in the late 1600s, they came for the whales but fed their families on wild game as well as the fish, clams and oysters they harvested. Jim Talone has woven vintage photos and his own still shots and video footage to accompany Hand's narration. Questions and answers will follow the presentation.
