Charles was the son of Bob Perry who was a veteran market hunter. By 1905 Charles and his younger brother Herbert were also involved in market hunting with their father. Together they became known as the “Perry threesome”. 

The men continued market hunting together until 1918 and they also guided sportsmen for many years. The Perrys’ used sink boxes in Kitty Hawk Bay and would use approximately 300 decoys per sink box that were made by Charlie and Bob. The brothers went to East Lake, NC to buy juniper wood for making the decoys. A local decoy carver in Kitty Hawk stated that Charles made some of the finest looking decoys around.
