Hunting a Mixed Bag of Deer and Predators

The one-two punch of an accurate rifle topped with a high-quality optic goes a long way when asked to perform double duty on deer and predators.

Hunting a Mixed Bag of Deer and Predators

Trijicon Credo HX 2.5-15x42mm Riflescope — The lightweight, low-profile Credo HX 2.5-15x42mm riflescope was designed by Trijicon for hunters who want to take a tactical approach to hunting — with durability and rapid target acquisition the main focus. It has a wide field of view that’s ideal for the fast action of hunting paranoid predators. It features an impressive magnification range and comes equipped with an MOA center-dot reticle with red and green illumination that provides pinpoint accuracy and quick ranging and holdovers. During my hunt, the Credo HX provided a bright, clear image from edge to edge and worked wonderfully even for night hunting. Crisp, precise windage/elevation adjusters require no tools, and the scope has a zero-stop feature. An easy-to-find repositioning magnification lever made it easy to keep situational awareness while shooting coyotes from 30 to over 100 yards. Contact: 

Springfield Armory Waypoint Rifle — The ultra-lightweight Springfield Waypoint bolt-action rifle is built for precision and accuracy, loaded with premium features such as a fluted bolt, TriggerTech trigger and AG Composites stalk. The hand-laid stalk features bedding pillars and multiple QD pockets for adding a sling, and the fore-end has three M-Lok slots on the bottom. The Waypoint is equipped with a carbon fiber barrel and weighs 6.5 pounds and had a fit and feel that made it a great choice for our combo deer/hog/predator hunt.
