Chuck Adam’s Seminar Topic:

Bow Hunting Adventures

Chuck Adams is the world’s best-known and most widely published bowhunter.  During the past 35 years, Chuck has written 5,300 magazine articles and 11 full-length books.  He has received the Bowhunting World Reader’s Choice Award for 18 consecutive years as the most famous writer in that magazine and has authored the two best-selling books in the history of archery.  Chuck was presented an honorary doctorate from Penn State University for his landmark writing in the archery field.

Each spring, chuck delivers 30 to 40 hunting seminars and keynote speeches at America’s largest sporting events, and autographs a yearly average of 29,000 free color photos for fans.  He appears 50 to 60 times each year on the Outdoor Channel, and stars on the “Easton Bowhunting” television show.

Chuck’s writing and public appearances reach an average of five million people per month. A level of exposure unrivaled in the hunting industry.

On January 4, 1990, Chuck became the first archer in history to harvest all 27 varieties of North American big game–a feat called the Super Slam.  Chuck has bagged more than twice as many official Pope and Young record book trophies as any other hunter in history–122 at last count with another 36 pending the entry process.  Chuck has held archery World Records in Sitka Blacktail, Coues Whitetail, Mountain Caribou, American Bison, and American Elk categories, more P&Y World Records than anyone else.  His giant Montana elk was presented the Ishi Award, P&Y’s highest honor and only the 15th bestowed during the Club’s 40-year history.  Chuck has 10 bow-bagged animals registered with the Boone and Crockett Club, and 189 archery animals in Safari Club International’s bowhunting record book–more entries with each club than held by any other archer.

Chuck is the only bowhunter to complete five Grand Slams on American deer.  He has taken 73 record-book deer, more than anyone else.  During a single 12-month period, Chuck bagged 13 official P&Y record-book animals, a record for one year.  Eight of these were deer, including three giant whitetails.

Chuck Adams is a Senior Member of the Pope and Young Club, Professional Member of the Boone and Crockett Club, and Life Member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.  At age 60, he is the youngest person ever inducted into the “big three” bowhunting halls of fame–Safari Club International’s, Bowhunting Hall of Honor, the National Bowhunters Hall of Fame, and the Archery Hall of Fame.  He has also received many awards for excellence in journalism and promotion of archery, including the coveted NFAA Chief Compton Medal of Honor and the ATA Fred Bear Communicator Award.
