Hunter Adams 1
Dawson County native Hunter Adams, 18, traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the bull riding division in the Junior NFR. Adams placed 10th out of the 200 hopeful young bull riders who tried to make it to the national rodeo held in December.
Dawson County High School graduate Hunter Adams recently earned tenth place for bull riding at the Wrangler Junior National Finals Rodeo held in Las Vegas Dec. 7-15. The Junior NFR was in conjunction with the NFR as well as the Cowboy Christmas convention located in the Las Vegas Convention Center. “Vegas is pretty crazy. It’s nothing like Dawsonville,” said Adams. “It was just a whole other world I guess – it was a culture shock.” The young bull rider was excited to qualify for the national rodeo. Out of 200 hopeful bull riders, Hunter was one of the top 15 in the nation to make it to the annual competition.
