I was very lucky to get to attend a seminar at Mike's with Sherwin when I first got into the game and spent several weeks with him over the past years pre-national training with him. His knowledge of dogs is well know by all but what was really interesting to me was his stories of big game hunting. He was "Been There Done That Guy" he was passionate about hunting all over the world he had the big five in Africa many times over, the Grand Slam of Sheep, all the plains game. But to hear him talk about his greatest love of hunting Coues Deer in Mexico would make any one who loves to hunt get excited. He said hunting a B&C Coues Buck was the greatest challenge on the planet.
He called me in late June of 11 and again in 12 and we spoke about nationals and just how tough they were. He was a very passionate driven individual in everything he decided to pursue. My thoughts and prayers go out Sondra and family.
I heard that Clint Swingle just recently passed as well.
Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.
I was fortunate to meet Sherwin on a Duck and Goose hunting trip to Alberta several years ago. Had known whom he was from the coverage of Mac but had never met the man. A very nice individual that knew a hell of a lot about dogs and training. Spent several hours talking and came away from that conversation with a new , deeper understanding of just exactly what dogs and dog training was all about. The retriever community has lost another. Thoughts and prayers.
I have judged him on more then one occasion. He will be missed. Condolences to his family.
He will be missed by his family to be sure. But he will be missed by the sport as well.
He was a major contributor on the high end.
My condolences to the family.
Sad news for the sport for sure.....My condolences to Sondra and His family. Enjoyed the time I spent with Sherwin alot. Lots of wonderful stories and successes in a live large life.
Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Sherwin N. Scott -
The invisible tie that binds us all is his degree of commitment and the camaraderie
reflected by Sherwin's involvement in the retriever field trial game.
That has set the bar high and earned respect from us all.
