Chuck Adams to Headline Logan Show


The "World’s Most Famous Bowhunter" headlines the inaugural Chief Logan Hunting and Fishing Expo this weekend in Logan County.

Chuck Adams will appear at the event Saturday and Sunday with seminars each day.  Attendees will also get a chance to meet the legendary archer one-on-one during the event.

It won’t be Adams’ first visit to West Virginia.  He was the keynote speaker at last year’s West Virginia Bowhunter’s Association annual banquet in Flatwoods.  There is where he first learned of West Virginia‘s unique "archery only" zone for whitetail hunting in the heart of the coalfields.  Adams says he’s never heard of such a thing.

"I’m not aware of it and I do get around quite a bit.  My guess is you guys have a lock on that."  He said during an interview from his home in Cody, Wyoming. "It was pretty exciting in talking to the bowhunters last year and they tell me there’s great deer hunting down there."

Adams was the first hunter to kill all species of North American Big Game with a bow.  He accomplished the feat in 1990.  He’s killed numerous big game animals around the world and is a noted outdoor writer who’s penned thousands of published stories about his travels and adventures.

"If I was pressed to the wall on it, I would have to say that elk are my favorite animal to hunt," Adams said. "Every elk hunt is extra special for me just because elk have big antlers, big bodies, they taste great, and they live in spectacular country."

The expo is being put on Saturday and Sunday by the Logan County Chamber of Commerce.   Adams will conduct his seminars from noon-to 1pm Saturday and 1:30pm to 2:30pm Sunday.

Also attending the event are champion turkey caller Chris Walls, professional bass angler Jeremy Starks, and coyote calling pro Tom Bechtel.   

A variety of ongoing exhibits, displays, and booths will also be part of the two day event which opens at 8:00am on Saturday and 10:30am on Sunday at the Chief Logan Lodge.
