I will visit the Website, but it would still be nice to know the dates of this event.

Matt- Can you tell us more about the “kill block” and how it is used and it’s purpose. I haven’t heard of that and couldn’t see them in the mouths in the photos section. Just curious.

The kill blocks are used to determine that the yote was shot that day.  After the yote has been dead for 30(+/-) minutes, you won’t be able to open the jaws enough put something like that in there because of rigamortis.  Plus the hunters are supposed to label the kill blocks with the time that the yote was shot so we can use that to record the time and temp data of the yote when needed.  We can compare the time the yote was shot with the internal temp to confirm the yote was shot during the legal contest hours.

Hope that answers your question.

you can click on the pics on the website to see them full size.  You will be able to see the blocks in the mouths of the yotes.  It doesn’t have to be like they are in some of the pics.  I recommend a 2x2 cut about 5 inches long and just zip tie around front of jaw.  Make sure data is easily read on blocks.

Makes perfect sense. I figured it would be part of determining if yote was legal in the contest. Good call on the internal temp as well.

Over the years we have developed a excel spreadsheet where we can enter the weight, time of harvest and temp of each coyote and it will create a graph for each team.  With that graph we can immediately determine if a coyote is being lied about.  It also does all the calculations and placements for me so I don’t have to add anything up myself.  Its all patent pending of course, lol.

The event is over and what a weird day.  Everyone woke up to a fresh coat of snow with high hopes for an exciting day.  But I guess the coyotes didn’t think it was a good day to be out.  We had 34 teams hunt and only 18 coyotes turned in.  We average around that many teams every year but average around 35 coyotes.  The top team brought in 6 coyotes but they had to start driving ditches to get those after many failed calling attempts.  We had 8 teams come back with coyotes.  It was a rough day hunting but still a successful event.  Thanks to all that came.
