Challenge Information (Jan 17 - Jan 19)
The Eastern U.S. Predator Calling Championship was founded in 2017 and continues to grow every year. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe and fair predator hunting event for predator hunters all across the United States. Predation on livestock, wild game and pets is a growing problem throughout many communities and predator hunting helps to reduce this problem. The EUSPCC includes predator hunters from all across the country helping to control the predation problem in 26 states east of the Mississippi River.
