Richard “Dick” Schiebel hails from Hutchinson, MN and has been a lifelong waterfowler, artist and world class decoy carver, specializing in Diving Ducks.
Richard has been both a competitor and a judge, at the Ward Foundation World Championship Decoy Carving Contest.
Richard’s lifelong friend Carl Melichar introduced Dick to Sea Duck hunting and in Oct./Nov., 1990, Dick journeyed to St. Lawrence Island in pursuit of Spectacled Eiders, and is thought to be one of the very last hunters to pursue the Spectacled Eider before its listing on the Endangered Species List.
Richard is featured in Carl's upcoming book: Spectacled Eiders of the Far North.
