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.

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
