    Best Coyote scope

    Might get into hunting them and i was wondering what scopes are good for it.They dont stay still very long and i imagine they're at a good distance so you need quick adjustments(i would guess 1/4 moa).

    We need to know your budget before we can help you decide, my friend.
    You just picked up a hitcher...a prisoner of the white lines on the free way.

    Are you thinking of some sort of ranging reticle, or do you want to "lase" 'em?? :wink:

    Well, that MIGHT be true, I suppose It depends on where you plan to be hunting them. You are correct that they don't stay still very long, but--as I know all too well--sometimes they are VERY close. In fact, I've never shot one outside 200 yards...just depends on terrain.

    With a $500 max budget, you can get into some very good optic/mount setups. What rifle will you be mounting this scope on?

    Knowing what I know, I would recommend a 2.5x10x variable from Bushnell, Leupold, or any of the other reputable companies in the price range. DON'T forget to include a quality set of mounts in your budget, I recommend Talley one-piece alloy ring/mounts, or for a Weaver setup, use Warne bases with Burris Signature Zee rings. If you wish to go Tactical/Tacticool, Picatinny systems are an option, but more pricey, and really not necessary for songdog rifles, in my opinion.

    BDC reticule might be worth considering for coyote hunting, providing the BDC is a good match, it allows for quick compensation of range on those constantly moving little dogs.

    I Nikon monarch w\ bdc would work nicely for coyote hunting.

    I concur with Mel and Hypno, the Monarch with a BDC would be a lethal optic!

    Professionals that demand nothing less than the best, demand Tac Ops.
