Accessories for Savage Axis?
 
So I just went out and bought Savage Arms's Axis in .223, specifically for yote hunting. I have a general idea of the setup I want to do with it, BUT price is an issue (as always). Just curious if anyone has any setups that they love or have any suggestions?

Scope? 3-9, 4, 4-12? Brand?
Bipod? Shooting stick? Sling?
Laser? Flashlight?

What do you guys use/suggest? Keep in mind I can't go spend $600 on a Leupold with night vision and all the bells and whistles hahaha

Flash lights you will have to check your state laws on. Lasers are illegal in all states for huntin as far as i know.

Savage Axis $319 w cheapo scope and rings
Bushnell Banner 6-24X40 $102 new on amazon
Winchester bipod $39
If you have decent glass you will be able to see at night if you have a decent moon and no cloud cover
ever thought about a 12v varmint light ?

Right now I have the axis with the cheapo 3-9x32 that came on it. Added a cheapo winchester bipod and wally world sling. Flashlights are legal for yotes in IL, just can't be connected to a vehicle. Would like to find a quality light that I could mount for cheap and a good scope too. Im gunna look into that bushnell banner that u mentioned on amazon.

I bought a different bipod other then a Harris. What a piece of Sh!t. It was a Caldwell. Pure junk. OP, don't buy cheap! There are some great options that are not cheaply made, but inexpesive. Nothing is more frustrating then having something fail or not work in the feild. Get a Harris Bipod, Look at a Sightron SII scope, Bases are more importent. Warne Maxima bases and rings work perfectly. You can go inexpensive, but do yourself a favor, don't buy cheap. It will cost you more long term. Replacing components costs more then buying a piece at a time for better qaulity that will last.

I gave $ 250 for an Axis in 22-250 with a scope but only a box of ammo through it. I took it home and put on a Leupold scope that I gave $ 400 for used. I now know that the gun shoots real well. I plan on takeing that scope off and putting on eather a 3 x 9 or a 3 1/2 x 10 Leupold. DO NOT BUY CHEAP SCOPES!!!!
