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 $25 upon that request. This $25 will be refunded back in the event the ruling in question is overturned, If the ruling stands, the $25 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. NOTE: Rule 18 is not reviewable, and is only enforceable by the tournament director.

18. 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 asshole, 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 tournaments sponsored, promoted or officiated by Coyotehunter.net, and Coyotehunter.net reserves the right to refuse entry to any team or team member who has displayed the above mentioned unsportsmanship-like behavior.

Man I really wanted to hunt this thing! I had a blast in Minot and felt we had learned a few new things and was ready to compete! Well ok maybe a little over the top on the motivation! ha..

The part that really sucked is that I had to work and wasn't able to compete in the tournament. The part the extremely sucked was that my work had me in Williston most of the day on Saturday!!! I wanted to get away just to go look at those new rifles!! Good job to those that participated and for those that won those new Olympic Arms rifles - I'm in the market for one!!!!!!

Wish you could have made it. How to justify taking vacation time from work, arranging for someone to watch the dogs, away from my daughter Halloween weekend, drive 900 miles round trip and all the other things that go with running a tournament (stuffing envelopes, ads, building blocks...) for 14 teams and 14 coyotes. Long drive home.....
