Legends like Fred Bear and Jack O’Connor are gone. Today, only one man survives in the hunting world with what can truly be considered a household name. You’ve seen bowhunter Chuck Adams in magazine advertisements and on posters in archery pro shops, grinning widely beside some big game trophy. You’ve read his magazine articles or studied his bowhunting how-to books. You’ve heard about his unprecedented “Super Slam” conquest of 27 North American big game species with a bow.
There’s little consensus and even less middle ground in judging Chuck Adams. Many of us have made up our minds, though we’ve never had the chance to see the man behind the magazine pictures … until now. This is the true story of Chuck Adams—a behind-the-scenes, unabridged account of the least-understood, best-known hunter ever. Many qualified people interviewed within this volume render their judgments. This book sets out to neither make Chuck Adams a sinner nor saint. There is no agenda here other than to write the true story of Chuck Adams’ life and to finally place you alongside him in the mountains, at a hunting camp and in his everyday life at full draw.
A sampling of the 15 chapters includes, “Born To Hunt”, “Chuck’s Greatest Hunts”, “The Ragged Edge”, “What The Guides and Outfitters Say”, “The Record Books” and “The Ones That Got Away.” The hardcover book is 304 pages and includes many photos which have never before been published.
