It is with great sorrow that we say adios to our dear friend, Coyote Calhoun AKA Lamar Shelnutt. We have been pardners since the middle 90’s when we first crossed paths in the early days of Mule Camp. I can say that through the years this was truly one of the finest cowboys to grace the range. Coyote Calhoun was more than just a Wild Bunch member but a true friend to those he met. The cowboy way was his motto. In past years, he has honored us with his presence and cowboy spirit at Hangin’ at Coyote Creek. Coyote’s enthusiasm, energy, and creativity have been vital to SASS and will surely be missed.
For those new to this shooting sport, Coyote Calhoun was a Wild Bunch member and Hall of Fame inductee who passed away suddenly September 20th while attending to business at SASS’ New Mexico Headquarters. He had assumed many of the major SASS business responsibilities for the past few years. Coyote Calhoun was the SASS National Programs Director and Marketing Director. He was a co-founder of the Shootout at Mule Camp, the first SASS Regional Championship, and, as a member of the Magnificent Seven, received the SASS Spirit Award in 1999. Coyote began working for SASS in 1999, bringing consistency and enthusiasm to the SASS National Shooting Program. He was part of the development of the SASS Range Operations Safety Courses and served on the SASS Range Operations Committee. He was an outspoken advocate of the “B” Western shooting category. In 2004, Coyote received the prestigious “Top Hand” award and was inducted into the Cowboy Action Shooting™ Hall of Fame in 2009.
As his best pard, San Quinton, so tenderly stated, “Adios PARDNER. I know Hoppy, Gene, Roy and Tom have greeted you with a Cowboy Howdy and welcomed you to their camp fire. Ride easy and keep an eye on us until we meet again.”.
