“Last year, we had some incredible head-to-head competition that resulted in talented new champions being crowned in five different divisions,” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF President and CEO. “We look forward to more dynamic call matchups this summer and invite moose hunters from across the country to join us and get involved.”
The field will be seeded based on past performance with bracketed head-to-head competition in all divisions: professional, men’s, women’s, voice, youth and pee wee. When it comes down to the final eight competitors, the format will change to double elimination in the Pro, Men’s and Women’s divisions, while Voice, Youth and Pee Wee will remain single elimination from start to finish.
Several previous champions expected to compete include 10-time singles winner Corey Jacobsen, as well as his daughter Jessi, the 2021 women’s champion, and defending pro division winner Cody McCarthy, while defending men’s champion Tony Gilbertson will move up from level to compete in the professional division. .
Devoted defender of public lands, elk hunter and life member of the RMEF, Randy Newberg, will once again serve as master of ceremonies.
