Ed Scherer has been shooting skeet for over 54 years.  In 1943 he enlisted in the U.S. Air Corps and became a P-47 fighter pilot in the Pacific theater.  When Ed was not fighting the Japanese, he would enjoy shooting skeet with a Remington 31 pump shotgun supplied by the Corps.

After World War Two, Ed stayed in Okinawa with the opportunity to shoot skeet with supplied guns and ammunition.  This enabled Ed to hone his skeet shooting skills to a razor sharp level.

In 1947, he shot at his first major skeet shoot, the Alamo Open, and broke 249 X 250 with a borrowed gun. Since then Ed has been named to 13 All-American Open First Teams, won three World skeet titles, won over forty Wisconsin State skeet titles and was inducted into the NSSA Skeet Shooting Hall of Fame, in 1974.

His skill and communication abilities have enabled Ed to be a shooting instructor, produce several instruction videos and books and to become Field Editor for Skeet Shooting Review and Wing Shooting Editor for Sporting Clay Magazine.

UPDATE (3/30/15): Ed Scherer went missing while on a hunting trip in Ontario, Canada on November 1, 1995.  He was 73 at the time of his disappearance.
