First coyote of the season with the AR

I caught this fella chasing mice up a valley in North Dakota a few weeks ago. A single downhill shot at 181 yards folded him like a camp chair. I am liking the rifle and optics set up a lot!

TT- Thanks! That is my Bushmaster Varminter in .223 with a Nikon M223 4x12x42 on top. That rifle is a shooter. I flat out love that rifle. I may have to repaint it for the winter, but for now the paint job works pretty well.

Just wrap it up with Vet tape for the winter. No need to ruin a nice paint job that works for 3/4 of the year.

+1! This was my first AR and I couldn't believe how well it shot. I thru a Magpul PRS stock on it and it was a huge improvement.

Re: First coyote of the season with the AR

Yeah, you are probably right, I should just tape it for winter, or use one of my other rifles that are already painted white..... or just use it as is. I have shot for more coyotes back in the day before painting your rifle was "cool" anyway, and never seemed to have a problem.
For you guys that have taped them after painting, any problems with wear on the paint???
