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.
