After contemplating it for a couple years I decided to add a varmint gun to the weaponry. I bought a Rem. 799 in 223 added a Cabelas Pine Ridge scope 6x18x44 and a Harris bipod. Nothing real fancy, but something to go play with coyotes with.
I started with my 243 but this year decided to specialize for my yote and bobcat hunting with the 22-250 in a Savage Predator which I put my Nikon Buckmaster 4.5 x 14 on. After doing my research on the two calibers I am happy to have gone with the 22-250.
Here it is and I must say it's accurate and I love it. Can't wait to wack some yotes with it this year.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue.
