Yea, it's enough power to see one. My bino's are 10X and I can see them much further than 350 with the binos.
Reticle thickness is going to be a bigger concern though. The finer the better for prarie dogs, but too fine will be a detriment for calling coyotes, unless it's illuminated. Something around 1/4 moa dot or finer crosswires is about right IMO without going to an illuminated reticle. I've got a NF rangefinder reticle on my coyote rifle, and I hardly ever need the illumination but it's too thick for some praire dogs. In contrast, I've got another NF reticle that is great for PD's but too fine for coyotes at dawn/dusk when they're in the brush (unless I light the grid).
