As a young teenager, I hung a wood duck on my porch while I ate supper. When I returned to my prize, I discovered the croker sack I had been carrying it in wasn't as strong as I had thought, and my duck was caught again, this time in the midst of an escape.
This incorporated Grainger's first use of tupelo wood, seen here as the torn sack material. If you click on the "view detail" button on the right, you can see a closeup of the frayed croker sack.
