For yotes i use my Rem 700 bull barrel 22-250 mat black with a hair trigger and sporting a Bausch &Lomb Elite 4000 6x24x40 with a fine cross hair. Its a tak driver 3/8 group @200 yards with 55gr v-max rounds.
Savage Model 10 Predator in 22-250 with a eXplore optic 4X16X50 with Target Dot Reticle. The target dot is so small that it makes a coyote look like a German Shepard at 300 Yrds. I use Berger 62 gr. VLD HP.
I always carry way more gun than I need. The most important is carry none that are larger that you can shoot good, accurate shots will beat out bigger gun that you are afraid to shoot. The other part of the equation is get plenty of practice in the off season as well as the hunting season. Follow what the loading manuals say for bullet weight, length powder charge size and primers.
For deer sized or larger I have a Tikka 270wsm. It is really a good shooter and sure puts down everthing that i shoot with it. shot two pigs at new years with it. I also have have a sako 75 in .243. shoots great for smaller stuff. looking into a tikka t3lite in 204.
