    Dwight Schuh we will miss you

    A pure hunter and superb athlete who helped thousands of us - Dwight Schuh rest in peace. I've bowhunted the same parts of Oregon he started in and he alone, through his books, taught me how to kill mule deer in sagebrush. I've owned a Dwight Schuh packframe for years and taken out countless animals on it, this year it will have even greater meaning. I'll never "upgrade."

    Really cool guy. I wrote an e-mail to Bowhunter once, mentioning how much I enjoyed his work. He sent me a sincere thanks, along with an autographed copy of his book "Hunting Open Country Mule Deer". That book has made a substantial contribution to my improvement as a hunter through the years. I love his humble attitude. When you read his stuff it seems like he is a friend trying to help you out, not a braggart or self promoter. It's nice to find a writer that you can look up to not only as a hunter, but as a quality human being.

    He was a friend trying to help you out, and I have a similar story, and that book is brilliant. A humble person and an iron man. Quietly knocking out marathons, triathlons, and every bowhunt you could imagine, all without hype or a sales pitch.

    Knew him through P&Y...always spoke with him at all the P&Y Conventions over the years. He would alsways thank me for my service as a lawman......won’t ever forget that. About 6 years ago he was on the same flight as me, my wife and kids......my son sat next to him......he was great and talked Bowhunting and the importance of school with him the entire flight. Class act for sure.......and IMO wrote the best Bowhunting mule deer book EVER (no disrepect to the Eastman’s).......will miss you, DS. I can’t help but think that many flat brimmers could benefit from reading his early and later writings.

    Dwight Schuh was a class act in every aspect of the phrase. Although I never got to share a hunting camp with Dwight, I did share many a trail-run and Ironman where my wife was competing. He was a great bowhunter and an even better person. He would email a few times a year to tell me what he thought we were doing right at EBJ. Funny that he never once mentioned a single thing we were doing wrong, although I am certain there were plenty. His outdoor and personal accomplishments are beyond what most of us know. He literally transformed bowhunting as we know it today, and yes some of the "flat-brim" society could certainly learn a thing or two from his legacy as they currently benefit from it. He will be missed and we pray for his family's loss. A great loss for our hunting community and industry. Rest in peace Dwight. -G

    He was a great man and true ambassador for bowhunting. He'll definitely be missed.

    Here's his Obit

    When I was a teen and majorly getting addicted to bowhunting, it was a great time to be getting into archery (in the 90's). Between Dwight, Chuck Adams, the Eastmans, Dan Fitzgerald, Larry D. Jones, and a few others, it was so fun to see the articles and videos that seemed like they were being tailor made for me and my dad. Dwight and the crew I just listed GREATLY affected my career path. I knew doing what they did for a living was a pipe dream so I went to college for wildlife biology to have some sort of a career in the outdoors. All these years later getting to work in the industry for Eastmans' and see these heroes of mine at various trade shows is truly humbling.

    Dwight Schuh's passing hit me like a ton of bricks. A true sign of the changing of the guard in the hunting world. And I'll admit, I have selfish feelings of remorse that he is gone. I should be rejoicing that he is with the heavenly Father now. He was a strong Christian and embodied that in the way he lived and treated others. Your dedication to archery and fair chase hunting, as well as the way you treated others will be missed, Dwight!

    For anyone who is unfamiliar with his work, you owe it to yourself and your children to do some digging and read/watch it. Stoney-Wolf Productions used to sell them but they are tough to find. I have them on VHS and need to get them converted.

    I echo the above statement by MulyBux7077.

    Having never met the man, I could still read the type of man he was.
    He effected the way I look at hunting and at life in general. Folks like Dwight, Chuck, & Larry are very very far and NONE between.
    Prayers for his family, friends, and anyone effected by the passing of this great man.
