A group of Charlotte-area hunters have created their own method to solve our region’s growing coyote problem – a statewide coyote hunting tournament.
Over the past couple years, coyote sightings have been increasing around South Charlotte neighborhoods, with reports of pets being snatched, and many parents fearing for their children’s safety.
The town of Tega Cay near Rock Hill has even hired a professional company to come in and set traps to try to deal with their coyote problem, although so far, they’ve only been able to catch 4 coyotes.
Local sportsman and owner of 704Outdoors.tv thinks he has the best solution to the problem – a statewide coyote tournament. Next month he will be organizing the 6th annual Carolina Coyote Classic tournament.
The tournament will take place from February 8th-10th and will be held at the Albemarle American Legion. It is open to all 100 counties around North Carolina.
The Grand Prize winner of the 6th annual Carolina Coyote Classic will take home $3,000 in cash and the winner of the Biggest Coyote will be awarded a Predator Hunting Rifle Package with a Sniper Hog Lights Rifle Light Package!
