All blocks issued for tourney must be returned to KFD!! Coyotes must be exposed to the outdoors, laid out side by side and not stacked.

18. Contest hours are 6:00 am cst to 6:00 pm cst January 21, 2012.
19. We will be picking 5 teams at random by number to be mediators, with 5 additional teams as alternates prior to the start of the tournament. In the case a team with any coyotes that are disqualified during the check-ins, the team/s with the rule infraction will have an opportunity—after check-in on Saturday—to request a review by their peers. The review will be of the facts as they pertain to the coyotes in question. One member of each of the five teams will have a vote, and the majority vote will be the final ruling. The team that requests the review will have to pay an additional $75 upon that request. This $75 will be refunded back in the event the ruling in question is overturned, If the ruling stands, the $75 will be forfeited by the team who requested the review. This is not an opportunity to re-write rules, but an opportunity to an impartial review of the facts.

20. 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.

21. Sportsmanship. Any team—upon the sole discretion of the tournament director—that shows a lack of consideration for other teams, the rules, or is just being an all-around jerk, will be refunded their entry fee and 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 our tournament, and the KFD reserves the right to refuse entry to any team or team member who has displayed the above-mentioned unsportsmanship-like behavior.

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 is imperative. We will have a large pool of coyotes to compare temperatures and times with, you should expect your coyotes to fall with in those ranges. If you check-in a coyote that does not fall with-in those ranges the tournament officials will have soul 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 a snowmobile and are considering entering the tournament just to run the coyotes down we would suggest you do not spend your money on the entry fee. Trapping, snaring, live trapping, shooting coyotes the night before, shooting them from a vehicle 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 official 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 out side what is allowed by the rules. Meaning that if your team turns in 4 coyotes that two of them are blocked in correctly 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 running them down, and explaining what happened will not help if every indication points towards you running them down with a snowmobile.
The burden is on the hunter to prove that the coyote was taken as per tournament rules not the officials. If you would
like to spend the weekend talking with coyote hunters and hunting coyotes with a 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.
