Glenn researched the antler configuration of the Roosevelt Elk, this provided criteria that led to it's acceptance into the Boone & Crockett record keeping lists as a separate species from the American or Yellowstone Elk.

From 1940 to 1994 Glenn wrote numerous articles for archery and outdoor magazines and newspapers to further the interests of bowhunting, including many on controversial subjects.

In 1985 he produced a video to save the art of making yew and osage bows for posterity. This professionally sixty one minute documentary was titled " Billets to Bow " It was also published as a book.

In 1997 "Bows on The Little Delta" was published. Written by Glenn, it is a fine story of a man with vision and the love of the outdoors and bowhunting.

Advice and Wisdom from Glenn St Charles ...

1. Credibility comes from firsthand knowledge, whether writing or speaking. Assumption, rumors, hearsay won't do it.

2. Don't search for a profound justification for hunting. You hunt because the animals are where you want to be.

3. Hunt ethically and in fair chase. You'll know the feeling when you have done it right.

4. Don't let peer pressure make you a trophy hunter. Be a trophy hunter until something else comes along.

5. Respect the animals in life and in death. A boot in the rump won't do it. A little humility is better. You may be alone but remember there is a higher Presence.

6. If possible, find a home for all usable parts, the meat, hide, sinew, and hooves. It's called respect. A rack worthy of a mount deserves the best in taxidermy.

7. Don't get caught up in the numbers game. If asked how many animals you have killed, all you need to say is " enough."

8. Remember everyone is a VIP

9. You really don't know a person until you have hunted with him.

10. Leaders need credibility. Be an independent thinker. Never let anyone or any entity own you.

In the early days of archery in Washington the only archery club was the Seattle Bowmen. Glenn went down to show them his stuff in a shoot at the Mountlake Playfield. He thought of himself as a pretty good shot …. he came in last ! Little did he know they would be shooting a York Round which was shooting at 48" straw rounds at 100 yards. " That was not my bag."

Notice any thing different in these two photos ?

In one he is shooting right handed and the other he is shooting lefty … I believe he started righty and went to lefty for his dominant eye ...

Glenn with a few Cascade Yew wood staves on his young shoulders. Glenn's father worked in the woods and I'm sure Glenn had the inside scoop on all the good spots to find the prime Yew. Son Jay still harvests Yew to make his fine longbows.

The picture on the left is Glenn while he was a Boy Scout in Troop 291. He learned about Yew Wood and making bows in his Scout manual.

The picture on the right is Glenn at 16 while he was attending West Seattle High School
