    Are any of you Yote hunters familiar with any organizations or clubs that have put on a fun predator hunting contest?

    I'd like some ideas on what works?

    Around here there are a lot of contests. Most are $100 entry per team(up to 4) and $10 side pots for the largest animal of each category brought in. All must be called in, teams hunt together, follow all state laws.
    coyotes-5pts
    red fox- 4pts
    bobcat- 3pts
    grey fox-2pts
    Some have a 5 animal limit per category and some are unlimited.
    Hunt noon Sat-noon Sun.
    Lie detector for one team member of each winning team
    Usually pays 3 spots 50% 30% 20%

    Hey thanks for the reply. I had a point system of some sort idea to. Up here we'd probably add 10 or 15 points for a wolf.

    I'm thinking to, that maybe it should be then divided by the number in the team. A team of 3 have an advantage over a team of 2, or an single hunter???

    For got 1pt for coons. So with the side pots entry is $150. 3 no advantage over 2 but a single hunter would have a hard time at night with the light and shooting.
