Scope for MN Coyote

7 posts in this topic

I'm new to coyote hunting, and curious what size scope is best suited for typical MN conditions. I'm planning on getting a savage .223 that will be used primarily for local stuff. I doubt I will go west into bigger areas. I was thinking a 3x9x40. Is that enough magnification?

get the burris fullfield II combo from cabelas, you get a good scope and a good set of binocs too. it has the baslistic plex in the scope which is nice to have too.....3-9x40 is the scope power

If you don't reload, I suggest the 55gr. Hornady Vmax Varmint Factory loads. Very accurate, very consistent too......

The "which scope?" topic will drive you crazy. Shopping for deals on equipment is my off-season hobbie. I spent last winter hunting for a scope for my new .204 Encore. I choose the Leopold 3.5-10. It was a bit pricey.

For a .223, any good 3-9x40 will do a good job. Burris, Nikon, ect. Find the model that you like. Go to Gander, Cabels's, or SMW and look at a lot of different models. Don't fall for the more you pay - the better the scope. It is true but you can over buy from what you need. Look for deals. If you can wait, the holiday sales will be great this year due to the ecomony.

Take a look at Natchez shooting supplies. Incredible deals on top brand scopes. I shoot a .22-250 with a 4x16 Nikon Monarch.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
