Acually spend more than the gun cost on a scope.

I like the nikon monarch line of scopes. I run their 6.5-20 's on my pdog guns. For coyote you might need a lower power for a wide field of view. Its hard to find them running at least for me.
I may try a nightforce on my next build. They have some that start at 3.5 power.

I have always agreed with this and have stuck with leopold and nikon but if you stick with a smaller calibers take a look at mueller. They are a Michigan company and produce a nice scope for the money. I have their 4.5-14 apv scope on my 22-250. They get great reviews and a friend of mine has one on a 30.06 and has no issues. (personally I would not put on a high recoil gun) Rimfirecentral is a great forum and have tons of reviews on it. Just my two cents.

Millett is another good option for an affordable scope with great glass and a lot of options. I have one on my 308 and its very consistent out to 600 yards. I believe its an American made product too.

Go with the monarch series if you go Nikon. You really do get what you pay for.

My cousin has a Redfield on his .17. It's a 12x power I think, pretty nice scope and is very easy to find target and works nice in low light.

Gun or Rifle?????????

Also once you figure out what you want for a scope go to Optics Planet, I saved hundreds on each scope I have bought.

Great service and quick delivery.
