Squirrel tourney Saturday

A very unique event begins Saturday on the west side of the Seymour square.

It's the annual squirrel tournament, organized by a trio of Seymour High School classmates — Nick Collins, Josh Cook and Josh Wright.

Rules for the tourney are simple.

Hunting begins at daylight on Saturday.

Check in follows at 2 p.m. that afternoon on the west side of the Seymour square.

Teams consist of three people, and the cost to compete is $30 per team.

Any weapon method is allowed.

Limits are six red squirrels and six gray squirrels.

The team with the most squirrel weight wins 60 percent of the pot, second place takes 30 percent of the pot, while third place earns 10 percent, as the tourney has a 100-percent payout.

Entry fees with team names can be given to any of the three organizers by 9 p.m. this Friday night.

Collins can be reached at 417-496-3451, Cook's number is 417-838-1904, and Wright's number is 417-773-6327.

Those competing also can go to Wright's Facebook page, find his post about the tourney and tag themselves.
