PS: This isn't just a coyote contest- or coyote/coon. Predators include fox, wolves and bobcat among other things. Also- all animals must be called and killed. No trapping, baiting, hounds or road hunting allowed. You should find Howler's threads from last season and use his information to format this years contest.

As Jrb said, if this contest is going to be like last years, we didn't allow trapped/baited animals, called only and we gotta include all the predators that can be called.

Just wondering if a bobcat or fox was considered a predator?

Sorry to be such a pain in the ass... but the closing date should be revised to MARCH 15th as it was last season. If you waituntilAprilwe'll have a handful of problems including dens full of starving coyote pups and most of the contestants (myself included) will no longer be visiting this site on a regular basis.

Most recreational hunters stop calling inJanuary/February as fur quality declines not to mention thatnearly ALL Midwestern and Eastern states have seasons that close within that timeframe.

Here's the basic layout we've used in the past... take this and run with it...

Interesting, but how do you call bears and coons? A spot light in the tree for coons isn't really calling, and cooking BBQ and leaving the cooker out to attrack the bears isn't calling either. If we want to play that way, I guess I can, but last years format was easy.
