Re: equipment questions

Well if you’re going to shoot at 50 yards on called Yote’s at night’…, you might try a SAVAGE 24 Over Under COMBO Gun 223/12ga. Top it off with a Leupold Prismatic with illuminated reticle and good loads; you’ve got a Yote popper. Most the M24’s I’ve used in a .223 Rem; had {MOY} minute of Yote out to 250 yard’s or so. M24’s are light short and give you some pretty good close in advantages with the .223 Rem in a good varmint bullet and the 12ga with BB’s or #4 buck.
As for the camo…. Its night time, don’t worry so much about color; worry more about your scent and outline… in the day time must stuff from Duck hunting to Military clothing works. You might put on a small pressure pad green light laser at the bottom of the shotgun barrel just for fun… nothing large just a small cell laser that can be zero’s with the rifle/shotgun’…., its a hoot.

Me…. I like the Yote out there in the thin air as they say…. the longer the better, but still using an accurate walking weight rifle, leave the heavy ones on the bench.

Re: equipment questions

This one is easy----many rifles will do the trick at 50 to 150 for this. Might think about even a 223 but the optics are a no brainer. USO SN4 which is the best low light optic I have used. Don't be fooled by the size it is the best for short range low light. I use one for short range feral hogs which are all at night---none better IMHO and I have them all from the PMII's, SN3's to the VMV 56mm's.

Re: equipment questions

I would say stick with your .223 as it is for now,because when you hunt in the day light you will be all set and my opinion is that with your scope on its lowest power you will be able to shoot at night if the spotlights are any good.
Go buy yourself a couple predator calls the closed reed type, that means the reed is inside the call, maybe a dvd about the sport ,watch it ,then go someplace way away from everyone a start making some noise , you will make mistakes we all have and still do. Here is a good site to check out
www.predatormasters.com lots of good info and people.
Just me but when I want to try something and a "club" tells me that all my equipment is wrong it makes me want to prove them wrong. Anyway good luck and hope you have success.

That made me grin from ear to ear.

For now, I think I'm going to go ahead and use the rig I've got. It's the calls and techniques I probably need to worry about most right now. I could waste days looking for optics and gear. Days I could use to learn about hunting.
