celebrating the life of dwight schuh

MY RELATIONSHIP with Dwight Schuh, iconic bowhunter, writer, editor, and my predecessor, began like it did for most — I met him in the pages of Bowhunter Magazine. It was 1980. My brother-in-law, Gary Fischer, arrowed a whitetail buck with his new-fangled compound bow. His exhilaration struck a nerve. I wanted that. Days later, I picked up a copy of Bowhunter, and that’s when the words of Dwight Schuh, M.R. James, Larry D. Jones, and others awakened the bowhunter that had been hibernating in my soul. Dwight’s Western focus quickly drove me to an addiction to bowhunting elk. I consider the 30 or so elk hunts now in my rearview mirror to be gifts from Dwight that I can never repay. Dwight and I eventually developed another relationship as “master and apprentice.” I’d…

a special friendship

ON FEBRUARY 5, 2019, the world lost a great man. Dwight Schuh was one of the nicest and most humble human beings I have ever had the pleasure to know. He was a devout Christian who showed his faith in the way he carried himself and the way he treated people. He was one of those guys who when he wrote you a letter, you kept it, knowing that you may refer back to it time and time again for the sage advice it contained. Dwight had a great sense of humor that at times could be self-deprecating, and hard not to laugh at. He was a great woodsman, tough as nails, and I loved teasing him. So, I hope you don’t mind if I share a few of my Dwight stories…

downrange enjoyment

A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE will occasionally give me updates on how many arrows he has shot throughout the year. He keeps track, and is the kind of guy who simply loves the process of shooting. He’ll shoot 10,000 arrows in a year, which is a lot. I’m jealous of him, because while I also love to shoot, I get bored easily. Standing at a set distance and shooting groups at bull’s-eyes is not my thing. I do it every year, especially at the beginning of the summer when I’m trying hard to get into the daily groove, but it doesn’t take long for my mind to start wandering and my desire to toe the line with a full hip quiver wanes. It’s at that point in the summer when I know…

my buddy dwight

IT WAS TOTALLY WEIRD. My good friend Dwight Schuh and I were shooting the breeze over coffee at the Bowhunting Trade Show in the early 1990s when we started comparing things we especially enjoyed. We’d known each other for two decades, had hunted together, and we obviously liked archery and writing. But that was not the gist of this particular conversation. It started when Dwight mentioned that he didn’t bowl, play tennis, or golf. But he loved to watch all these moving-ball sports on TV. Ditto for me. Then we compared college careers and were astonished that we had both majored in English and minored in Philosophy. That’s an odd combo to begin with, and even more unlikely that we shared it. I asked when Dwight’s birthday was, and he told me…

no immediate cure for cwd

RECENTLY, the Internet has been buzzing with questions about the seriousness of chronic wasting disease (CWD). For long-time readers, you know I’m a data guy, and the data are quite clear on just how serious this disease is. A 2018 Wisconsin study showed that CWD-positive deer had an annual mortality rate of 69 percent, while those that were CWD-negative had an annual mortality rate of 35 percent. This begs the question, why are people not finding dead deer lying around in the woods? The mortality study I’ve just cited used GPS radio collars, so that when a deer died, the signal stopped moving and the researchers went in and determined the cause of mortality. Some were shot in hunting seasons, some starved, some got pneumonia, some were killed by predators, and…

remembering dwight schuh

LIKE MOST BOWHUNTERS, I knew of Dwight Schuh as a bowhunting writer long before he was my “boss” at Bowhunter Magazine. As my editor, he was simply Dwight — polite, soft-spoken, efficient, effective, and a great guy to work for. I fondly remember a hunt in Argentina that Dwight, Larry D. Jones, and I did for Bowhunter TV . It was on that hunt that I learned firsthand that there was much more to Dwight Schuh the bowhunter. Like most hunts, we were able to enjoy some downtime in the middle of the day, which I used to catch up on sleep. Dwight, however, would put on his sneakers and sweats and take off running for at least an hour every morning. I’m told that even when his cancer became…
