I have met many outdoor writers/personalities over the year but Dwight is by far my favorite. I consider him a dear friend and I have known about his cancer for a while. He actually completed an Iron Man Triathlon while he was battling this illness and on Chemo - and he was over 70 years old. He would constantly joke with me about training and working out and for that I called him the fitness nazi!

I understand he's in a rough spot right now. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this difficult period.

From: elkster

One of the truly good guys. Sad to hear. He and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I met him at the Edmonton, Alberta P&Y convention in 1997 and took the opportunity to tell him how much I enjoyed his writing - I'm glad I did.

I caught a glimpse of him at the 2017 convention in St. Louis and was planning to talk to him when the opportunity seemed right, but I didn't run into him again. He looked very thin and I suspected something was wrong.

That's horrible to hear. Dwight is one of the most humble men I've ever met and a man I really look up to. His book "Hunting Open Country Mule Deer" is a classic that was one of the key reads that helped me become the hunter I am today.

I really enjoy Dwight's writings and also his quick wit. He could really give to Pat in a kind way and it was obvious he likes him. Makes you feel good being in his presence. Peace be with you!

Praying for Dwight and his Family. He had a great influence in my life as a young man. He is one of the reasons that I started bow hunting at a young age. I couldn't wait to pick up Bowhunter Magazine and read his articles. Wishing Dwight and his Family the best.

Dwight is a good friend. My son got to share a goose hunting pit with him a couple years ago. A couple of days later I showed my son Dwight on BOWHUNTERTV and explained to him the same guy on TV was the guy sitting next to him goose hunting my son thought that was pretty awesome. As some of you know he has been fighting Cancer for many years and fighting hard. This is an aggressive Pneumonia that has hit him hard and the Dr.'s are having a hard time getting on top of it. It's serious and yes please join in "Healing Prayers" and specifically to CLEAR Dwight's lungs! Prayers buddy!

Prayers for all involved...

At the P and Y banquet in Lancaster a while back I was having my copy the new Traditional record book signed by friends as well as “famous“ attendees . As I walked into a restroom Dwight was washing his hands I thought his would be a good addition to the memento.

As he passed me I said I don’t normally talk to strange men in bathrooms but would you mind signing this... Dwight said “ we’ll dont start now”. lol

He poked his head backed into the door and said he was in a rush for a meeting and track him down over the next couple of days and he would be happy to.. lol

I grew up reading his articles in Bowhunter. He always had me daydreaming about wild places and awesome adventures. I was immediately drawn to his writing and bowhunting prowess. From what I understand about Dwight, there is probably only one thing he loves more than his family and bowhunting and that is Jesus Christ.

God Bless Dwight. You are in my prayers.

We are praying for a miracle for the Schuh family! Dwight, if by chance you get to read this : Thank you for being a great ambassador to our sport. I got to met you at a ND Bowhunter banquet. Your writings inspired me to hunt the west... a 22 hour drive, diy trip to Idaho-“Bungling” for elk! I was instantly hooked and actually moved our family west to be closer to the action. You have always conducted yourself in an honest, positive, and humble way. And it never went unnoticed. You are a Bowhunting Icon and I’m proud to say that I met you! God bless you and your family!

Dwight Shuh inspired pack Still going strong !
You can do this Dwight overcome this mountainous obstacle!

He has been my inspiration for western big game hunting. bought his books and still use his pack, last year moose hunt, this year wolf hunt. It was one of his articles that got me into appling for western hunts. his point was there are units with higher number of animals and lower number of hunters making for a great experience for the regular guy! After 25 years still in the app game. Met him at P&Y convention Madison Wis was neat to thank him in person. Didn’t realize he was so tall.

Thanks Dwight for all you have done for the bowhunting community.

This thread got me to thinking about how Dwight and Curt handled the sub legal bull moose in 2010. Pretty much speaks to the character of the men involved. I know Curt, Larry D, and MR, and the rest over at Bowhunter are in a lot of pain. Hoping for peace for all.

I have had the pleasure of several conversations over the years with Dwight at P&Y conventions. Always a soft-spoken and willing to answer questions and share knowledge. He and Roy Keefer's input were instrumental in helping me properly set up an effective lower poundage bow for hunting.

His articles were some of my favorite reads in Bowhunter magazine.

My friend Dave Doran is in the Hunting Open Country Mule Deer with Dwight and Larry D. I thought first of that and then the ELK Fever video that was my first purchase many years ago. Dave passed a couple years ago so I'm hoping he's got a couple spotted for Dwight to chase- but Much later.

Still have my Schuh pack too.......

Through Dwight's writing he brought me on his journeys of adventures chasing mule deer, elk, moose and bear, things I couldn't chase in Iowa when growing up. I also learned about bow set-ups, shooting and tuning. He lit a fire in me that burns until this very day. It is obvious he has reached many of us and touched us all in so many ways. Prayers to Dwight and his family to get through this difficult time so more memories can be made.

Many very supportive posts on here- it's apparent Dwight has touched us with his life and actions.

Thanks for the pictures Wishedhead- I haven't read those articles.

Prayers from Wyoming. I've been a fan of Dwight's ever since I read his book "Bugling for Elk" in the mid -80's. I thoroughly enjoyed the old DVD's he made with Larry D. Jones, especially where they took turns putting pine cones in each other's boots. They always seemed like genuine, good people.

As good of a bowhunter as Dwight is I think he is as good of a person. I remember well the giant typical Muley he killed on the famous Paunsagunt. In our family we use his name in a lot of phrases "D-white" tail ":D-white" face ol' muley, "D-white" truck. I think his philosophical writings connect with the masses and provide both entertainment and enlightenment. We can only hope he can fight through this setback. IMHO he is the King of Bowhunting authors, Dwight if you read this remember "If the Schuh fits, wear it well"!

Man, I hate to hear about this. I think I read every magazine article that he put out in the 90s and a lot since then.

Hearing this news is truly heartbreaking. I've never met Dwight. But I've read his books and his articles. I consider 'Hunting Open-Country Mule Deer' to be the Bible of pursuing mulies with a bow. It's a book that I continue to re-read from time-to-time. More importantly, though, Dwight Schuh has a well-earned reputation for his high ethical standards. In that we can learn as much from the life he has lived as we can from the words he has committed to the printed page. My prayers are with Dwight during this difficult time.

As his grandson I have seen first hand what a wonderful and tremendous man he is. Ever since the tender age of 6 years old when he placed that Brand New Matthews Genesis bow in my hands he has been by my side ever since. I write this to you many fans of his by his bedside right now. I’d ask all of you he ya influenced to live everyday and hunt with the passion he did for the rest of your days. As his family we thank you for the prayers being sent. God bless to all.

Although I never had the privilege of meeting him...I loved all his writings. Mr. Schuh had an amazing way with words, and I often felt like I was right there with him on his hunts. He was the real deal and he did it all the right way. Years ago, in the early 90's when we were just getting into the bowhunting game, Dwight was in Edmonton, transitioning into a hunt. A meet and greet night was set up at Trophy Book Archery, one of the local archery dealers at that time. I couldn't go, but my brother did...My brother had the good fortune of meeting and talking with him. We had been struggling a lot with completing stalks on Open Country Mule deer. Dale had shared some of our struggles with him, and Dwight listened ever so carefully. His response was simple and humble, just like the man. He explained that once you were close enough to get a good shot, and you were comfortable with that distance...stay put and wait. Don't get too close. Simple stuff...but smart. We killed many bucks after... God Speed Mr. Schuh. Thank you for all your words.
