Thanks, Paul! I never get tired of hearing stories like that. It's nice to hear about bowhunters who hunt for the love of hunting, not for records and publicity. You were truly lucky to spend time with him.

I am just now learning about Paul Schafer. What a thrilling read, what a vibrant life. I know that just as the stories make the blood race, they are also going to give me pause in my travels, and lead to some quiet moments of contemplation in the field.

Thank you, Mr. Brunner.

Nobody EVER calls me "Mr. Brunner"!!!!!! It's Too Short, if you want to be polite and nice. Otherwise, you wouldn't believe what my hunting mates call me!

I know nothing of Hunter, Paul's son. There was a very nasty custody battle and not long after that Paul was killed. I would guess that Barry W. might know more. I lost track.

I am not much for being polite. Nor nice. I was intending to show respect for you, TF, and for Paul and your memories of him.

See if I make that mistake again!LOL!! [tunglaff] [Razz]

Wait a minnit...if calling you "Mr. Brunner" gets your goat...

That's a great tribute. Is there a biography written on Paul Shafer? If so, I'd appreciate its title and author.
Thanks,
Ken

Cool post Paul. BTW I just watched the Elk Dream Hunt video Saturday night. My heart was pounding and I wasn't there!

I still think about that hunt, Tom. I got into another situation like that this past September. I had DOZENS of bulls going in one basin. It was insane. I thought of Schaf, as I was stalking in on the one that goes with my posts.

I met Paul Schafer many years ago at a P&Y function. A physically impressive man. very soft spoken and just all out nice guy. Over a few years in the late 80's and 90's I was able to corrospnd via letter (before the net sterilized communication). I have saved those letters and game pictures. they adorn my den of mounts and extensive vintage recurve collection. Paul is a major part of my Archery history display. As is the 8th Dwarf, and the Wensel boys (senior citizen and all). Rich Lopez [bigsmyl]

I am simply amazed, I've heard of the Silvertip, and heard Paul's name mentioned but never had any idea of what this man has accomplished both personally and in the friendships he made.

"WOW" does not cover it, you fellows sure are blessed to have spent time with him.

Praise God for men like him

I would think there is enough info, stories, pictires, etc. on Paul for someone (you know who) to write a biogrophy of sorts... say funded by The Montana's Bowhunter society with portons of the proceeds going to his son.

Archery Elk, The Dream Hunt should be available from Stoneywolf Video productions in Minneapolis. They have a web site, so do a search and you will find them. Ebay will probably have some, too, although not all the time.

Dan, you don't know but about 2% of it! This man tried to keep his name OUT of the public eye and was ten times the hunter SOME OTHERS who seek notoriety will EVER be! Maybe we will get that book done...then some of the incredible stories will come out for all bowhunter to read.
