Rick Kent brought in a beautiful bobcat along with one coyote during the Camp Gibbs Predator Hunt for first place in the hunt. He was awarded $310 in prize money. Second place was won by Dave Johnson and Paul Jarski with two coyotes for prize pay-out of $190.

Lori Polich, right, and son Jake took third place in the Predator Hunt for a winning amount of $155. They had two coyotes, the same as the second place team, but the Polichs’ catch weighed less. Lori also received $50 for the smallest coyote harvested. Jim Marcell, who took fourth place, received $50 for the largest coyote along with his $120 winnings. Bombo Alexa was the fifth place winner with one coyote. His prize was a Limited Edition Rodeo Raffle Calendar. Other hunters who received $25 for single coyotes that didn’t place in the top five were Rick Lapp, team of Bob Chmielewski and Jerry Smith, and team of Steve Stochoff and Dave Ridolphi.
