Hello Bowsite friends! Dwight Schuh passed away with family by his side this afternoon. Take care ol' friend! If you can they are getting ready to escort him out of the VA as I type this with Flags by his side and the playing of TAPS. Many tears so take a minute to pray for comfort for his friends and family that are there to witness this moment. The Bowhunting world lost a great man today, but Heaven gained a good one.

From: StickFlicker
I hope that by the time the rest of us make it there, he will have figured out bowhunting in Heaven and have some tips for the rest of us! I enjoyed first meeting him at the Edmonton P&Y Convention in 1997.


From: Heat
May the Peace of our Almighty Creator, which surpasses all earthly understanding, be with all of his family and friends. Prayers up from AZ.

Godspeed Mr Schuh.

From: Screwball
He is a wonderful place now. Peace and prayer to his family.

From: nijimasu
This makes me very sad. I'd bumped into him several times, even in the hills, once. He read my son's essay for Bowhunter magazine the year he won the youth writing contest. Never got my dog-eared copy of his mule-deer hunting book signed by him, always thought I would. Goodbye, sir. Hope the rain-kissed sagebrush smells as nice where you are now as it does here in Idaho, and the critters are plentiful. The world is a better place for having known you.

I never met the guy just read his books,,, but as a brother in arms, I can just know, what a fellow he was to be with,,,,, it must be hard on Larry,,,,,, I have shed a tear tonight...

God Bless Dwight

Godspeed indeed.

RIP Dwight

Rest in Peace Dwight

So many above echo the same sentiments and sense of loss. Our community has lost a great voice.

God has called him him home to be with him for eternity. I am so sad to have lost Dwight and yet happy that the Lord has eased his suffering and called back one of His own.

Thank you for the brief time You allowed us to have him among us down here and looking forward to being reunited with You in all Your glory. May you bring comfort and ease the grief of Dwight’s family and friends in the knowledge that he is with you, in perfection, forever.

'No Man is an Island'

... every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

Never met the man in person. I believe that we, as hunters, are lesser without his voice. My condolences to his family.

From: Sean D.
RIP Dwight!

From: Glunt@work
Rest in Peace Mr Schuh. I had the pleasure of meeting him briefly but the real connection was reading his articles. I have a copy of Elk Fever somewhere in the bottom of a box. I need to round up a VCR and watch it. May not work, my buddies and I wore that thing out dreaming of getting an elk with a bow some day.

From: Turkeyhunter
RIP Dwight.

From: Paul@thefort
He authored a book on Elk Hunting which I carried on many elk trips and read in camp, just to keep ahead of the game. Pulling this compound bow back, the string with his teeth, showed true dedication to the sport when he was having shoulder issues.

He set the bow hunting bar high with his actions and words, but now he is in another Higher Place.

My best, Paul

From: Jaquomo
He was a slight man but a giant in what he pursued, accomplished, and contributed to this world. RIP Dwight.

Damn, sorry to hear this...

From: Frank Noska
As we all are in agreement, we have lost a true gentleman and a legend in bowhunting. My prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace my brilliant writing, moose charged bowhunting friend. Your writing skills and penmanship are going to be missed dearly, as no one can duplicate. Your contribution to bowhunting, we all cherish, will never be forgotten. But what I will remember the most, is the true gentleman that you always were. RIP.

Just reading all the tributes. He left things behind with others far more valuable than wealth or objects.

Sad to hear this. Prayers for the family, RIP Dwight.

How sad to read this, this early AM

Prayers from Utah to his loved ones.

Keep the Faith, Robb

From: steff
Sad news indeed! Rest in peace.

From: elkstabber
RIP Dwight. Thank you for your tremendous contributions to our favorite sport.

From: Olink
Well done, Mr. Schuh. We were all blessed by your contributions to the bowhunting community.

From: Amoebus
I always thought that Dwight came along at the perfect time for him and us - he was knowledgeable, he was humble and a good writer when people still read books on hunting. He came into his prime as archery was hitting its prime. If he came along 30 years later, he would have been drowned out by the multitudes of braggadocio outdoor-channel/youtube hunters. If 30 years sooner, he would have been talking to a much smaller audience. His open country mule deer book has been read at least 15 times over the years in my house - not many other books can claim that.

I wish his family peace in this trying time.

RIP Dwight!! I was very happy to have met you!!

Rest In Peace

From: South Farm
Read lots of Dwight through the years, one of my favorites! Saw him give a seminar way back at the Earl Brown Center in Minnesota on Alaska moose hunting and nobody could light a fire in the imagination like he could! Awesome writer, editor, speaker, and ambassador to bowhunting; he'll be deeply missed for sure! We've lost a great one..

From: Starfire
For our group Bugling for Elk was the bible. But I think his Wild Side articles in Bowhunter were truly inspirational. I wish that I had kept them. I particularly liked the one where he talked about the pain of bowhunting and how its worth the cold and wet and sore to make the memories. His faith was also a great inspiration and I take comfort in knowledge that he is with our lord.

From: 12yards
I've got tears. I can't tell you how many articles of his I've read, but I know he's had a big influence on my bowhunting life/how I hunt. He was a great Godly man and he will be missed. Hope to meet him in heaven someday.

Dwight hurt his shoulder (many years ago) and could not pull his bow. Instead of grabbing a crossbow he got a mouth piece to pull his bow and actually hunted and killed that season. That was a special time in His and Bowhunter Magazines history as he told that story. “Never give up”!

From: Feedjake
I grew up reading his column at the end of Bowhunter magazine. Did a lot of good for a young kid to read such a level perspective.

Well Dwight you might have crossed the finish line but i doubt your resting in peace, your probably resting after a long hard pull to the top of a mountain to glass the new country. Thanks for giving this 50 year old all those great bowhunter articles to read growing up we will keep the fire burning for ya thank you .

From: bentshaft
RIP brother.

From: DL
He was in Oregon Hunting one year looking for a reported 380 class bull. Friends from the ranch next door ran into him. They Had a very enjoyable meeting with him. Didn’t get the bull. My hunting partner did. I first saw who he was from an elk hunting video he and Larry Jones did on elk hunting years ago. Both of them were such class acts. His life will be missed but his stories will live on.

Can't really add anything more than what's been said, but he sure fought the fight to battle cancer.

I've known Dwight since back in the mid eighties when a buddy and I were hunting elk in our super secret spot in Idaho. We started seeing these strange animal tracks on the trails, as well as some huge boot prints, like size 13 or 14. We finally found the answer when my buddy came upon a camp early one morning and it was Dwight and Larry and Jay Rais with a pack of llama's and they were making the video "Elk Fever". Unfortunately for them, we had already been in there a week or more and had all the elk pushed around. The called us "those damn backpackers", because our tracks were everywhere. Dwight even told me that one day he hiked to the highest ridge and out to the farthest point he could make it in a day, and when he got there he saw a bunch of Redwing boot prints in the dirt. He said he almost threw up. I wore Redwing boots that year. In the picture, Dwight is in the middle.

Reading Stickflingers post with Pat's interview, Dwight talks about his Wyoming moose hunt. After a couple of weeks, he was getting a little burned out and took a day off and came over to our place and spent the night and got cleaned up. We decided to take the plane and check out some new areas he hadn't been in yet, so the next day we jumped in the 206 and took off. Shortly after takeoff, the engine started acting up, so I came back and landed and did some tweaking on the fuel pump. The next attempt went well, and he liked what we saw, and I think he killed his bull soon after. I think he also had a couple or grizzly encounters. I asked him later if he was nervous about the plane acting up, and he said he didn't really know what was going on.

Heat: Thanks for the heads up on the service this Saturday with the YouTube link.

From: nijimasu
The Service was excellent. It left me wishing I'd known the gentleman more than just from his writing- but as people talked about him it did confirm that he most definitely was that guy we know from his books. I hope the live stream on YouTube worked, and some of you all got to see the Service. Again, I did not know Mr. Schuh personally, but I can certainly tell you now- If you can truly measure a man by the love of his friends- Dwight Schuh was huge.
