Watauga SD coyote hunt rules:

1. Entry fee shall be $60 per two man team. 90% payback (1 place for every 5 teams entered) 10% to cover tournament expenses and to go toward next years tournament. Limit of 25 teams. Call Scott Katus @ 701-522-3453 or Josh Schneider @ 605-484-8693 to enter.

2. Largest coyote ($10) and smallest coyote ($10) weights will be taken at check in. (100% payback). Cash paid on the night of Feb. 4th.

3. No more than two persons per team. One vehicle only.

4. Coyotes must be taken at least 50 ft. from any vehicle.

5. You must locate and CALL your own coyotes. You cannot have another team scouting for you.

6. Use of an ATV, Snowmobile, airplane, helicopter, Para plane, and/or ultra light to locate and/or chase coyotes will not be allowed. Use by either a team or by someone on behalf of a tournament participant will result in immediate removal form the tournament and will be banned from all future tournaments that tournament directors put on.

7. Coyotes can be taken with any .24 cal. or smaller cartridge, and/or shotgun or bow.

8. Blocks will be distributed at the Friday night rules meeting check-in and placed in each coyote's mouth immediately upon retrieval. The block must have the team number and time of day marked clearly on the tag. Bands will be provided to place around the coyote's mouth (top and bottom) to secure the block. Core temperatures will be taken and you should expect your coyotes temps to fit within the group. THE BLOCK MUST BE FILLED OUT COMPLETELY AND BANDED IN THE COYOTES MOUTH. ANY COYOTE TURNED IN WITHOUT A PROPERLY FILLED OUT BLOCK (SEQUENCE NUMBER, TEMPERATURE, TEAM NUMBER) BANDED IN THE COYOTES MOUTH WILL BE DISALLOWED. Coyotes must be exposed to the outdoors. Coyotes cannot be placed in plastic bags. enclosed boxes. or stored inside vehicle. This makes it impossible to get consistent core temps if these standards are not followed by everyone. NO EXCEPTIONS. $10 deposit on blocks will be required. Full refund when blocks are returned.

9. At least one team member must be present at Friday nights rules meeting.

10. All applicable licenses must be in your possession at time of tournament. If you are hunting without a state furbearers license or applicable tribal license, local authorities may be notified and you will be disqualified from the tournament.

11. All entrants must be present and available to answer questions at the evening check-in.

12. No live decoys and/or dogs. (No running coyotes with dogs)

13. No baiting.

14. All coyotes will be inspected, weighed, and will be a donation to the tournament to help cover expenses to the event.

15. All ties broken by total weight. In case of weight tie a coin flip will be used.

16. No pooling of coyotes between teams.

17. Check in times are strongly enforced. No morning check-ins, official start times are 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset. Afternoon check-in is as follows. Feb. 4th 6:00 pm MDT. Be on time, 6:01 will not be allowed! It is your teams responsibility to find a tournament director for check in.

18. Anyone banned from ANY prior tournament will not be allowed to enter.

19. Calcutta Auction: You are required to buy your own team for $25. Your team will then be available for open bidding to be purchased by the highest bidder. 100% payback. Three (3) places.

20. Sportsmanship. Any team--upon the sole discretion of the tournament directors--that shows a lack of consideration for other teams, the rules, or is just being an all-around asshole, will forfeit their entry fee and be asked to leave. If it is determined that any team or team member who--in the past--has a history of questionable actions, coyotes, behavior. etc., that is deemed detrimental to the enjoyment of the tournament by others, they will be banned from entering the tournament. No team has an inherent right to hunt tournaments sponsored, promoted or officiated by the tournament directors, and the directors reserve the right to refuse entry to any team or team member who has displayed the above mentioned insportsmanship-like behavior.

21. Chili feed and prizes at Saturday night check in!

The rules are set out for the benefit of all participants to ensure everyone has equal opportunity for a great hunt and a chance at winning the tournament. Each coyote will be examined at check in, and all rules will be strongly enforced. Core temperatures, time of kill, and sequence will be checked on all coyotes checked in. Properly filled out blocks are imperative. We will have a large pool of coyotes to compare temperatures and times with--you should expect your coyotes to fall within those ranges. If you check in a coyote that does not fall within those ranges, the tournament officials will have sole discretion of disallowing the coyote in question. Violating the tournament rules or the laws of the state can lead to that teams removal from the tournament and depending on the situation, the local authorities may be notified. If you have snowmobile and are considering entering the tournament just to run the coyotes down, I would suggest you do not spend your money on the entry fee. There are several tournaments available to hunt in that do not have rules and/or do not enforce the ones that they do have. This is NOT one of those tournaments. Trapping, snaring, live trapping, shooting coyotes the night before, shooting them from a vehicle, having another team or individual locating coyotes, or trying to take a coyote in any way that would jeopardize the integrity of the tournament will not be tolerated and you will be removed from the tournament immediately. Anything questionable will be up to the discretion of the tournament officials to determine if a coyote will be allowed or disallowed. It is the burden of the tournament participant to follow the rules and to turn in coyotes that do not appear to be taken outside of what is allowed by the rules. Meaning, that if your team turns in 4 coyotes that two of them are blocked incorrectly based on times and temps. The ones in question will be disallowed. If you turn in coyotes that are all shot in the hind quarters with a shot gun, with dry bladders and empty colon, you may have a problem convincing anyone they where taken legally. The tournament officials do not need to see you in the act, and explaining what happened will not help if every indication points towards you running them down with a snowmobile. I would rather have one team mad because of an honest mistake than all the other teams upset because we did not enforce what would appear to be an obvious rule infraction. The burden is on the hunter to prove that the coyote was taken as per tournament rules--not officials.

If you would like to spend the weekend talking with coyote hunters and hunting coyotes with chance at winning some gas money for more hunts, we would love to see you at the tournament.

Please sign that you have read the rules and understand them. At least one member of each team must sign prior to receiving blocks.
