Poacher Brags About Kills on Facebook, Gets Social Media Slut Award

In this high-tech digital age, we're taught to be careful about what we post on sites like Facebook. Potential employers may not find the humor in that photo of drunk, shirtless you wreaking havoc on the streets of south-side Chicago during the St. Patrick's Day parade a few years ago. You know the one we're talking about.

Be that as it may, some just can't help but jump at the opportunity to publicly humiliate themselves via social media. Take Darin Lee Waldo, a Davenport, Fla., native who openly bragged on Facebook about how he illegally killed several whitetails. This moron even extended invitations to illegal hunts to undercover wildlife agents who had messaged him through the social networking site.

To top it all off, Waldo is a convicted felon who shouldn't have even possessed firearms in the first place. The Aristocrats!


For posting anything and everything without thinking like some brain-dead teenager, we at Petersen's Hunting award Waldo with the prestigious Social Media Slut Award.
