This should be a great tournament because it is early enough in the year and have a good possibility of calling in family groups of coyotes. It is also a great time to meet people who have been at this sport for a long time and they might just give you a little insight if your a rookie :wink:

gsehnter-bloms: In my opinion i would say any one who is in the age range of 12-dead. :lol: Most kids that are 12 years old and love to hunt have there firearm safety certificate. On the other hand you will need someone that can drive you around.

Lukeos: You can pm (private message) me and ask for this information and i can give it to you, or you can email me at [email protected] and i will send you the flyer for the tournament. I dont think i can post on here where to go to get it cause it would be advertising. If you were to contact me one of those 2 ways then you can get it for sure :beer:

Hope to see you there :sniper:

The 2008 Minot Predator Hunt went well!! I would like to thank Jamie and TBush!!! Without those two guys this tournament would have never happened. Another thanks needs to be given to TBush's wife for cooking an awesome meal for everyone at the end of the hunt. Everything in my opinion went smooth. Thanks to all the gentleman and ladie (Tbush's wife) for participating in this tournament. I am sending all the information to jamie for record and review by him and he will be posting the final results page and or editing my post.

The results are (after skinning all dogs and gutting big dog):

1st place:
Jesse Sucket and Damon Finley
checked in 6 coyotes (saw 11) with a check in time of 7:00 pm and also won big dog at a weight of 36.5lbs.


2nd place:
Marty Oyle and Luke Oyle (aka Lucos on the site)
Checked in 2 coyotes (saw 9) with a check in time of 7:29pm and also won Small dog with a weight of 23.35lbs.


3rd place:
Thomas Carson and John Bohnenkamp
Checked in 1 coyote (saw 5) with a check in time of 5:07pm (Didn't get a picture of them because they had to take off to get back home. This is the coyote they shot)


4th place:
Travis Bush and Casey Olson
Checked in 1 coyote (saw 6) with a check in time of 6:05pm


5th Place:
Richard Testa and Daryl Bargsness
Checked in with 1 coyote (saw 4) with a check in time of 7:11pm


Since there was only 12 teams (15 being the cutoff) the payout was 75% and only the top 3 placed teams will be payed out. At the end of the day there were 12 coyotes, 1 red fox, 1 raccoon, and 1 badger checked in. 12 teams saw 54 coyotes on a day that was very windy!!!

Congratulations to all who participated in the tournament and to the winners!! I hope everyone walked away with at least a learning experience for next year!! All the teams that participated in the hunt were top notch teams. Everyone had great cooperation :D

Thompson has been fun in the past. I am really worried that I can't make it this year as the inlaws Christmas is going to be in Mandan this year. :-?

I can't skip that big shindig so I will just keep my fingers crossed. If I can't hunt it I will do some calling out there and my spirit will be with you all! :D
