Years ago decided to organize a local Coyote Hunting Tournament in our backyard to help with Predator Control as well as a great event to bring like minded sportsman together. The three years were a success and the 4th Annual tournament was even bigger and better! We’re excited for this tournament to top them ALL with a great location and awesome prizes that have collected!


Stanly County is the home of 704 Outdoors! With such overwhelming support from Stanly County over the years, we are proud to host the C3 Tournament in our backyard. We hunt in Stanly, we usually gather in and around Stanly County to leave on trips to destination hunts, just to hang out, shop and eat in town. We are proud of our partnership with the Stanly County Convention & Visitors Bureau and even more pleased to call Stanly County home to the Carolina Coyote Classic. Special thanks to for getting us set up at the American Legion Post 76, formally known as the Stanly County Fairgrounds.
