The Spring Contest has arrived! Just getting the prizes from Contest 1 all sorted and sent, and now we’ll begin Contest 2 .
Prizes to be announced, but we have some gooders! Looks like we have some great discounts on Taxidermy, a handmade coyote call, some very cool LED lights for a quad, sled or truck, and maybe some cool, innovative new swag from a brand new camo and outdoor wear company.
Rules are simple: Coyotes score 1 point, bears 2, and wolves score 3.
All must be taken in 100% Legal Fair Chase. Must be taken from March 1st 2014 to contest closing on June 15th 2014. All animals taken in this time frame must be reported by Midnight, Jun 20th.
All entries must be taken and entered by registered Wolftracker.ca members. Membership is free, so sign up and drop us a note as requested .
Why the new rules? Well: We’ve decided that, due to Island folks not having coyotes to shoot at (Lucky them), and the fact that Yotes end much earlier in some regions than others makes the Spring contest a bit lopsided. So we asked ourselves “Selves,” we said “what does BC have a lot of that are very active killers of fawns, calves, lambs and kids?”
Well Bears was the obvious answer! So: since wolves are the primary focus of the site, we will stick with the 3 points each, to encourage folks to make that an actual goal. Bears will get 2 points. Coyotes will get 1 point.
An entry consists of a photo, location, species and sex of animal. As a tie-breaker, females will be given a + beside the points earned. Please follow all local rules and regulations. Do not shoot a sow in the company of cubs.
Here’s the first prizes in, with more to come!
From Ray Wiens Taxidermy in Aldergrove BC, what should last as one of our major prizes, unless someone wants to out-shine his generosity! 😀
Ray is my personal taxidermist, and I love his work. When I asked him to step up to the plate and support predator control in BC he wowed me with some nice gifts, one of which will be in this contest. Ready for this?
A $250 Shop credit for Ray Wiens Taxidermy Studio!! Wow! Thanks for your generous gift, Ray! I think you’re gonna see lots of bears this spring! Click on the Cat to go directly to Ray’s page, and tell them Wolftracker sent you!
A very cool item if you have an ATV, a truck, a side by side or any off-road vehicle. These would also be great to add to your hunt camp trailers for those times you come in late to the skinning pole and need some bright lights to light up your camp! This prize is TWO 3″x3″ LED Cube lights which put out 1450 Lumens each in a flood pattern for combined total of 2900 Lumens. Generously donated by ATVtrackkit.com , this prize retails for $220.
