The Contest Details
The idea behind the hunt is to have a weekend event full of predator calling action. From the organizer's standpoint, the focus of the event is to provide a friendly predator calling event for hunters of all experience and skill levels. In the past, the winners received a large sum of money for their efforts. For 2007, the emphasis will not be on capturing the prize money, but rather simply participating in a fun hunt.
