My friend recently killed an elk for his 200th Pope and Young animal, very fitting since elk are his favorite animal to hunt. Congrats Chuck!

Congrats to Chuck. I’m not an inches guy, never measured an animal and for sure have several species over minimum. But if that’s your thing, I’m happy for you.

Good job chuck. You are an ambassador of the highest order. Thanks for what you have done for the sport.

Thanks for the insight in what motivates you dale

29-Sep-20
200 animals with a bow is quite a feat. 200 animals that have made P&Y's records officially is just incredible.

29-Sep-20
Surely an amazing feat. His consistency and drive for many decades to be a successful archer are inspiring.

That guy loves bow-hunting. He's also a fine ambassador to our sport. Congrats to him on the incredible milestone.

Wouldn't surprise me if Frank Noska is the next guy to do it. A quick check of the new records database shows he has 166 right now.

Has anyone else killed over 200 big game animals with the bow? I’m talking about not only P&Y animals. Is there anyone who is not nationally recognized that’s done it, Congrats to Chuck! Truly a bowhunting legend. Can’t imagine the amount of time and money it took to do it.

29-Sep-20
An amazing accomplishment. From what I’ve heard from a couple of guys, he’s a great guy.

I hope he continues enjoying his sport and time afield and I look forward to notification that he’s surpassed 250.

Hearty congratulations Mr Adams!!!

Mentioning Chuck and Raglin in the same post is sacrilege. A good percentage of Roger’s Whitetails are high fence kills.

And to think most of those were killed with a longer more forgiving bow, round wheel cams, tie-dyed pants, flannel shirt and fingers release. Truly the world`s greatest bowhunter.

From: TEmbry

As Chuck would likely admit himself, records are set to be broken. Will be interesting watching others chase after him. What an incredible accomplishment!

Hats off to your dedication and success Chuck, second to none. And a really nice person who I met once at a sportsman show, who presented me with a signed pic of his Kodiak bear kill.. Still have it! I think that bear was one of the 200....

Really nice guy. Back in the 80s I had the pleasure of having booths at sports shows next to Chuck. Harrisburg / monroeville PA/ ohio.

I really enjoyed just talking with him. Even back then I knew he was driven

I'm really glad for him

My friend let me borrow the 3rd Edition of Bowhunter's Digest by Chuck. Read that thing front to back probably 5 times. I was hooked on bowhunting from then on. Even got Chuck to sign the book for me in 2002. Congrats Chuck. Keep inspiring.

From: TrapperKayak
01-Oct-20
Spike78, I think so, the thing is enormous. If I find the pic, I'll post a scan of it. (My 1st comment in the undies thread would qualify there).

01-Oct-20
Yes, Chuck taught me how to bow hunt through his books! He has some very impressive trophies, several former world records.

Ron, curious how many critters Chuck has taken that did not quite make P&Y on top of the 200 entries?

Congratulations to Mr. Adams, hell of an accomplishment.

From: Chuck Adams
02-Oct-20
Hello, Chuck Adams here. My thanks to all of you for your kind comments! I hope everyone enjoys bowhunting as much as I do. It's really not the numbers that count--it's the super fun along the way. Good hunting this fall!

From: Ron Niziolek

Congratulations Chuck, Wow, what an epic accomplishment and What an epic post!

I was trying to wrap my head around this and the “How Much Have You Spent on Taxidermy” thread came to mind. That’s when it hit me that Chuck has spent more on P&Y entry fees than most have spent at the taxidermists! Not to pit people against people but one thing about Chuck is that he bridges the past to the technological era of today in which many do not know of all of the challenges from then to now.

From: Frank Noska

Hello Chuck. I want to personally congratulate you on your 200th P&Y animal. And yes, I completely agree that the real trophies are all of the fun, work, hardships, sacrifices, ups and downs, highs and lows, that this amount of bowhunting represents. These memories are priceless. It is about all of the far away places we travel to, cultures experienced, people met, and friends made. I enjoy bowhunting as much as you do. I admired and looked up to you when I first began my own lifetime journey of bowhunting, many years ago, and I still do.

I remember Chuck wrote years ago, that he anticipated continuing to hunt until he was 75. I suspect there are a lot of critters out there that can hardly wait. Maybe they will have a birthday party for him.
