10 Best ARs for Predator Hunting

As deer hunters, there's a special kind of passion that goes into predator hunting. Not only is predator hunting a ton of fun, it's also a fundamental part of managing healthy deer numbers.

And when it comes to getting the job done against wolves, coyotes and other predators, an AR can often be a hunter's best friend. Many models and calibers make for great deer rifles, too.

Likewise, varmint and predator hunters were among the earliest to adopt the AR platform for field use, and there are a lot of good reasons to choose an AR rifle for a predator hunt. AR rifles have always been highly adaptable and customizable, and with the modern crop of hunting ARs in a variety of calibers, it's easy to choose the perfect one to meet your needs.

You can outfit them with lights, optics, and lasers, and the AR's short overall length and maneuverability make it a natural choice for the hard-core predator hunter. In addition, AR rifles offer fast follow-up shots.

The large and growing AR market offers a wide selection of rifles that will work well in the field, but these are 10 of the best ARs for today's predator hunter.
