Re: Ar or Bolt action for yotes?
I also shoot both. I have a light Dan Carey built AR with all the bells and whistles and a Savage Predator Hunter both in .204. As to accuracy, RRA makes some nice rifles that will shoot with most bolt actions any day. That said, the AR is a different beast. They definitely have a different feel and handle than a bolt rifle. Some bolt guys never quite get used to them. The AR has also become very reliable but never quite as reliable as a bolt. Too many moving parts. I shoot both and I'm comfortable carrying both but when the fur has to hit the ground, I find myself packing the bolt rifle.
But, if you haven't done the AR thing yet, it's worth trying to find out for yourself. The fast follow-up is pretty nice and when you get one running across open ground, it's kind of fun to "stack some brass"! Good luck! Hope you pile up some coyotes!
