Geoff Nemnich — contributor to Predator Xtreme magazine and this website — and Dustin Patterson won the 2015 World Championship Coyote Calling Contest. The contest took place in Arizona on December 3 through 5, 2015. There were 67 teams competing in this year’s contest.
Nemnich and Patterson were able to take home the crown by harvesting 17 coyotes during the day and a half contest. On top of that, they did so hunting 100-percent public lands. This makes back-to-back wins at the World Championships for Nemnich. The top three teams had to take a polygraph test to ensure the rules were followed and all teams passed.
Temperatures were up in the 50s and 60s during the day and down into the 20s at night. Winds were 5 to 15 miles per hour during the first day and light and variable the second.
Nemnich and Patterson found pockets of coyotes that were responding fast to the call. This forced them into a run-and-gun strategy to cover as much ground as possible. The duo made roughly 30 stands the first day and 16 on the second.
