The hunters have spoken, we have listened, and given the answer we've all been looking for.
2016 BEST OF THE BEST
A predator hunter is a specialist. A smooth operator. He is not nervy or emotional, he is chiseled from stone. A predator hunter calls his prey, and makes one precise shot at an unknown distance on a predatory animal.
It is because of this definition and because of a desire to find the best at what we do that this hunt was started. A hunt that is truly 100% for predator hunters and brought to you by predator hunters. It is not a hunt that is won by having thousands of acres in fox country, or thousands in coyote country for that matter, rather one that is won by the skills of the men behind the light, behind the guns, and behind the calls. This hunt searches for the BEST TEAM. Not the best land, location, or the heaviest animals. It is not a hunt for the faint of heart, but if you think you've got the stuff then here it is.
COYOTE 1 POINT
BOBCAT 1 POINT
FOX (RED OR GREY) 1 POINT
HEADSHOT ANIMAL 2 TOTAL POINTS
Contest judges will have final say in any and all disputes
There should be nothing to argue about
All team members will be present at the weigh in
All team members must be able to take and pass a thorough polygraph
WITH EMPHASIS PLACED ON HEADSHOT CONCERNS
All animals must be called. They must commit to a lip squeak or call before the trigger is pulled
Team members will remain together for the duration of the hunt, ATVs are allowed, night vision is not
All team members will present a valid hunting license
All members will abide by the rules set forth by the Texas Parks and Wildlife
No baiting, trapping, or pooling of animals between teams
Hunt will begin at 12:00 pm Saturday, and teams not present by 12:00 pm Sunday will be disqualified
STRICT 5 ANIMAL LIMIT PER SPECIES
Ties will be broken by a timesheet logged by each team, showing the time every animal was loaded
for example: 16 points in 18 hours beats 16 points in 20 hours
An animal found with more than one wound WILL NOT count as a headshot
Headshot disputes will be settled by snaring the animal around the neck at its highest point, and hanging it. An ENTRANCE wound found ABOVE THE NOOSE will be deemed a headshot.
The FIRST 5 ANIMALS KILLED IN A SPECIES are the animals that may be "weighed in". this prevents teams from hunting for headshots
$500 entry per team with a 4 member limit
There are NO sidepots. A heavier animal does not indicate a better predator hunter
First place will pay 80% of pot, and 4 custom championship belt buckles.
Second place will pay 20% of pot
100% total payout. No polygraph cost or fees are taken from the pot
So do the math.... wont take many teams to have a pretty stout pot
