Duck Decoys

Herman Schierl



Herman Schierl, born in 1869, was a lifelong resident of Menasha. In 1906 he operated a saloon. After selling that establishment he became involved in city politics, serving on the city council and was an alderman when he passed away in 1935. He and his friends built a 25’ boat, at his home on Broad St, that featured a 6hp motor that pushed the boat up to 10 mph. His decoys featured a distinctive head and bill design.
