    Some years ago a well known shooter/sportsmen went hunting with his dog
    and was never seen again.

    Do you remember his name?

    Was his body ever found?

    Ed Scherer. Grouse hunting in Canada, never came back. The dog was found but never a hint of Ed. A snowstorm came that day and obliterated any sign.

    He was one of the top skeet shooters in his day and did a lot of teaching.

    Didn't Ed write a column for a sports magazine? Or maybe a book?

    A great shooter and educator. I trained with him. This was a tragic loss. It does not seem that it was that long ago, but the years are beginning to run together.

    Wow, I didn't realize it's been 15 years already. Only one dog was ever found? I well remember what a tragic event that was. Enjoy today while you can. I guess I need to get Alder out for a few more days in NB. Good health and good shooting, Bob

    I took sporting clays lessons from Ed six months before he disappeared. We went out to dinner, and I got to hear about his experiences as a P-47 fighter pilot in WWII.

    What a fine teacher and fine gentleman he was. What a terrible loss.

    He has a book out about him and skeet shooting. He was another of the fighter pilot - skeet shooter group. Skeet shooting was use as a way of teaching young pilots to lead your target, it was cost effective back in those days. I try to follow his skeet shooting methods when I shoot the game.

    Ed's companion, Virginia, is pictured on the cover of "Ed Scherer on Sporting Clays".
