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.
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
