The February 2014 Big Dog Predator Hunt in Henry County saw a record turnout of hunting teams who also set a record for the number of coyotes taken in the four year history of the event.

It was a snowy morning but winds were calm and that worked in favor of coyote hunters who could better see the sly predators coming.

There were sixty teams entered in competition this year and the crew harvested some 58 coyotes and five bobcats. There were six teams who checked in a three coyote limit.

Also noteworthy was the big coyote taken by the team of James Askew and Mark Matheny that tipped the scales at 43.7 pounds! That’s the biggest one ever checked in during the hunt’s history and it sounds like the coyotes are doing well out there in the wild.

The Askew/Matheny team earned $1,000 for checking in the biggest coyote.

The McKenzie team of Eddie Basford and Hunter Garrett won the event with a three dog limit weighing a total of 114 pounds. These guys are good as they’ve won the event in times past. Their win earned them $1,000.

Second place went to Nathan Leonard of Camden with a limit weighing 108 pounds, followed by Richie Chilcutt and Sammy Cox with a limit weighing 104 pounds. Fourth place went to Shannon Bethune and Russ Buffington with a limit weighing 100 pounds.

“It was a great event overall and shows the growing popularity of the sport here in this area,” said hunt spokesman Randall Bowden. “We’re looking forward to next year’s event already.”
