Troy Adams started walking at seven months. His mother said by 11 months
he was running, and if you ask the local wildlife, he hasn't slowed
done much since. The first critters he ever "hunted" were crabs on the
island of Bermuda when he was three years old. Troy discovered that his
little toy plastic rake was the perfect weapon for digging them out of
their lairs and dispatching them.
Later, as a young boy in Arizona, he bravely defended his dog's dish
from marauding house sparrows and starlings, air rifle in hand. At age
16 he killed his first coyote and, that very day, his passion for
hunting predators was born. Thirty five years later the passion still
burns as strong as ever. Troy has hunted everything from tiny kit fox
to large black bears, from Alaska to Africa, as well as all over the
western United States, Texas, and Canada.
Although Troy has hunted many different species of big and small game
his favorite animals to hunt are predators. Black bear and coyotes are
right at the very top of the list. He feels there is a thrill which goes
with hunting predators, especially when they come into a call, that he
cannot find hunting any other animal. Whether it is in the fall, winter,
or spring, it is a sure bet that Troy will be out hunting coyotes or
bear with his every free minute. Troy is married to his wonderful wife,
Terri, who supports him in all he does. Together they are raising their
six children: four boys and two girls. With that many mouths to feed and
support, spare minutes are not overly abundant, but Troy has been able
to strike a balance, between family, church, work, and his passion for
hunting. One thing is for sure and for certain, the local coyotes sure
do wish he would spend a lot less time in the field. Coyote calling is
Troy's addiction and he is not looking for a cure!
No seminars or other events are scheduled for Troy Adams at this time.
