Decades ago, I sort of cut my bowhuntin' teeth watching Dwight Schuh & Larry D Jones in the old VHS hunting classic, 'Elk Fever', which I watched over & over again back in that era. Long story, but back when I first became an Oregon bowhunter, when I was young & resilient..lol, watching that movie was a key component to be successful at taking elk 'solo' with a bow, out in the wilds of the Great Northwest before I ever stepped foot into that awesome mountain terrain.
Here's a video clip of an interview with Larry that includes excerpts from the movie, 'Elk Fever':
Hey, just rejoice over this, ladies & gentlemen, for Dwight went on Home a brief moment ahead of us! Yet, even now, I suspect he'd still agree that nothing else down here equates to standing inside of "the bull's lair" during the elk rut... :-)
I have yet to read the so rightly-deserved tributes, but we would have hearts of flint and eyes of glass not to feel very moved or shed tears when remembering all that Dwight Schuh did for bowhunting and for sharing his very considerable experience with all of us. God rest him and good hunting for the next life.
Saw Dwight at the SCI show in Minnesota...one of the best seminar speakers I ever saw...captivated the entire audience with reflections of his many Alaskan hunts and shared a wealth of information on how to do it on you own before DIY was the rage it is now. Hell of a writer too, Bowhunter mag just ain't the same without him.
He was a very humble man and did so much for our sport! Loved reading his articles because he always found a way to express in words the appreciation of the entire hunt and experience and not just the kill.
