Resurrecting The Adam Henry Awards – Trophy Hunter Edition

October 1, 2015

There seems to have been a rash of trophy hunters behaving poorly of late.  While I’ve been known, on multiple occasions, to take my pot-shots at the antler fixation, my targets have largely been relatively innocuous… at least inasmuch as breaking the law to attain their goals.

But then I read about the yo-yo from Sportsman Channel’s The Syndicate poaching multiple species in Alaska… apparently for no better reason than to acquire footage for the TV show.  Another TV host was busted in the lower 48 for similar reasons, including trespassing and unlicensed hunting (unfortunately, I can’t find a current link for this one).  It’s enough to make me want to smack my head.

Truly, any of these guys would rate the Adam Henry Award (Adam Henry is an informal radio code used by some law enforcement and emergency services personnel to designate someone as an asshole, in case you didn’t know).  But then, as I was perusing the news releases Wednesday night, this gem lit up my screen.

Apparently, this young fellow, one Nick Davis, was so eager to make his bones, so to speak, that he actually screwed a monster set of antlers from a PA deer to a dead NC deer… and proceeded to have it scored as a new North Carolina state record!

Seriously?

Yeah, sadly enough, it’s absolutely serious.

And sad.  So fricking sad…  I mean, what an idiot move, right?

Better yet, though, the Blind Tom who scored and approved it… Joey Thompson, from the NC Bowhunters’ Association… didn’t seem to pick up on the discrepancy and is so upset, according to the article, that he might not score any deer “for a while.”

Really?  I sort of think it might be time to hang up the tape, amigo.  You know… just give it some thought.

On top of everything else, apparently our boy, Mr. Davis, took it a step further by shooting the NC deer (a 3-point, eastern count) with a rifle during archery season.

Honestly, this was all it took for me to blow the dust off of the Adam Henry Award.  Mr. Nick Davis, of Elkin, NC… you earned this!
