Adams is no stranger to most per the outdoor TV circuit and is a great fit for the area’s bowhunting only and extremely popular trophy deer turf.
Adams became the first ever to arrow all 27 species of North American big game.
What’s more, he accomplished the feat more than 20 years ago and is still going strong as an active hunter.
The event is hosted by the Logan County Chamber of Commerce (LCCC).
It also features famed coyote hunter and colorful how to speaker Tom Bechdel out of Pennsylvania, West Virginia’s McDowell County native and champion turkey caller and Beyond the Backyard (BTB) youth program coordinator Chris Walls, Charleston WV’s professional bass angler Jeremy Starks, WV Game and Fish magazine and famed Virginian river rafting writer Bruce Ingram and others. A Youth Challenge Competition, bird dog demonstration and 3-D Archery will also be on board.
