Please be respectful if you call. Simply let them know that you feel this is an egregious practice and needs to be stopped. Be sure to also let them know how this may affect businesses and the economy in Sublette County.

These senseless predator killing contests which occur across the state are often called coyote calling contests, predator hunts, or varmint hunts. Wyoming Untrapped believes these events are not hunting, they are a blood sport. It’s time to say NO MORE to these wildlife killing contests.
