I would suggest a 3-9. The larger FOV on the 3-9 will be a well needed advantage at closer ranges. Most of the time you will be calling coyotes with the power on 3 anyway, or you should. No telling how may times I have had coyotes or bobcats come in and my scope was set on 6 or 7 and that coyote got away. I think the ideal calling scope is a 3-9. Light, compact, and really all you need for shots out to say 400 yards. The thing some people do not realize about coyotes are they do not give you time to range them and see how far they are 99% of the time. You have maybe 5 seconds max on a coyote that you have called and then he is gone. Higher power scopes are nice if you have one sitting out there sunning himself and unaware of you being there, but that dont happen very often. Most are coming in fast and quick and you need all the field of view you can get in that situation.

Just my opinion ;\)

There is a huge difference between the vx11 and the vx111. The vx111 is MUCH better in all catergories. I would go with the nikon monarch ucc over than the vx11.The leupold vx3 is my favorite scope.

I havent bought a leupold since they changed thier Vari-XIII to the VXIII and so on but the Conquest is head and shoulders above the Vari-X III

The VX-III is better than the older Vari-x III's. You still might like the Ziess better, but you should check out the newer VX-III's.
