WATERTOWN -- A painting by South Dakota artist Joshua Spies has been chosen to appear on a gift card issued by Cabela's, a company that sells hunting, fishing and other outdoors merchandise.

The gift cards will feature a painting of a mule deer by Spies, who is from Watertown.

Colleen Dorwart of Cabela's says the company based in Sydney, Neb., decided to use the painting because its customers relate well to images of deer. Spies is an outdoorsman, conservationist and hunter.

Spies has been a finalist in the federal duck stamp competition five times, winning it in 2008.
