Results for Minot Predator Hunt 16 October 2010

Postby lyonch » Mon Oct 18, 2010 10:01 am

First and foremost, i would like to thank Terry Bush and his entire family for the great accomodations and amazing food once again!! If it wasn't for the Bush family, this hunt would not take place and be as successfull as it is. I would also like to thank all the participants who came out and participated in the 2010 Minot fall Predator hunt. Your a great group of people that help keep these tournaments running very smooth. Keep up the great work and we will try our hardest to keep putting on these fun hunts.

There was a total of 18 registered teams for the hunt this year, but two of the teams were unable to attend and make the hunt. With windy conditions and a cold snap that rolled in the night before the hunt, 16 teams showed up and took there chances at winning the title of 1st place at the 2010 Minot fall Predator Hunt. With check in times of 5am and a rules meeting following shortly after, all teams departed there directions to there secret spots. Check times came all too soon for most im sure, but at 8pm we had all but two teams come back to check ins. After all coyotes were checked in, there were a total of 27 coyotes and 1 fox shot. There were a total of 81 coyotes seen, and 3 fox. After the cost of the hunt (plaques and advertising) were taken out, and an additional $10 for the points series, the total purse came to $720.00 to split between the top 5 teams.

1st Place: Team #2 Damon Finley (devildog) and Tim Finley checked in a total of 8 coyotes with a combined weight of 197.89 lbs for $216.00

2nd Place: Team #18 Dave Guttormson (BucksnBears) and Tom Guttormson checked in a total of 5 coyotes with a combined weight of 131.7 lbs for $180.00

3rd Place: Team #14 Marty Oyloe (snareit) and Mitch Kvernum (mitchkvernum) checked in a total of 4 coyotes and one fox with a combined weight of 131.77 lbs for $144.00 Even though they had more weight than the 2nd place team, the points of 10 per coyote and 5 per fox puts them in 3rd.

4th Place: Team #3 Nick Nielsen and Matt Klabo checked in a total of 2 coyotes with a combined weight of 54.77 lbs for $108.00

5th Place: Team #1 Terry Bush and John Noonan checked in a total of 2 coyotes with a combined weight of 48.14 lbs for $72.00

Big dog: Team #12 Mike Houmann and Cory Hansen with a weight of 40.43 lbs for $170.00

Little dog: Team #11 Gary Will and Kevin Huntz with a weight of 15.14 lbs for $170.00

Congratulations to all the winners and sincerely apologize if i spelled anyones name wrong. If anyone has anything they would like to add to the hunt, and this topic feel free to do so. Thanks again to all who participated, and the Bush famil for all the amzing accomodations once again :D

Thanks again to the Bush family and all others involved for putting on a great hunt. We had a good time despite the crappy wind, but it was still better than last years 40 feet of snow.

P.S. It's Cory, not Corey :P

Thanks to Levi and Chris for putting on this tournament and to the hosts also. It was a great time. After the first stand and a quick shotgun dog, we thought the day was going to be great, little did we know we wouldn't call another one in until the last call of the day. It was good to check out a new area of the state as well. Congrats to the winners on the quad, that definitely doesn't happen often. Thanks again and hope to see you all in Williston!

She was shot in the face at 17 yds. I was calling in a fence line on the opposite side of Matt. We were about 15 yrds apart so I didn't get to see it but I heard the shotgun bark and knew we had one down. It's pretty funny cuz I was giving him crap about carrying this old H&R single shot but it's super light so he carries it. If we didn't have the shotgun on that one, she probably would be still running. I'm not sure on the shot size but I know it was 3 in. steel 1 7/8 oz.

For sure. We'll be there. I've never hunted coyotes up there. We're going to leave a little early and bring the bows and scout a bit hopefully. Until then good hunting!

lesson learned.... if your gonna hunt N.D. ya gotta get used to high wind :shock: .i left a day early to scout our route and somewhat try to coriagraph our stand set-ups so we would'nt waste time. that worked out for the better. my brother got a bit pissed at me cuz i would'nt let him finish his sandwitch after the first set and 3 dogs down. prime time ai'nt no time to eat.. :roll: . :wink: we located 5 spots and had responces to 3. called in coyotes on the 3 we located in the dark.i would say we walked at least 15 miles. love walking N.D. pastures :) prolly lost 5 lbs.. which i don't wanna do as i'm getting a little thin in the skin :wink: :?: :?: :?: we ended up seeing 15 coyotes but only got 5. had one big one coming in slowly but a black hawk started buzzing it and it spooked before i could shoot :x . we both also missed 2 that were legit shots... just missed :( :( had a great time despite the wind. good to see everyone again!!!!! congrats to the Damon and dad. thats a lot of dogs for a day. thanks again Carrie and Terry :D oohh yeah, Dcoy, we came from good stock :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
