Given the expected widening of the pulsar emission beams at low radio frequencies, searches at decameter wavelengths may particularly be advantageous for pulsars whose narrow (high radio frequency) beams miss the line-of-sight towards earth. This article briefly summarizes the results of searches for decameter wavelength counterparts of several radio-quiet gamma-ray pulsars carried out with the above view, and presents preliminary details of a serendipitous discovery of a nearby pulsar.
