Thinking of buying a camo gun (serious about coyote calling) and wondering who is making decent quality camo optics.   It looked to me like Nikon was about all there was.
 
Anybody know of any other camo scope manufacturers?

I recommend you buy the scope that best suits your needs then camo it yourself.

You can always rattle can it.

 If you're really serious about concealment, (and you should be for coyotes), a camo tape job is very easy to add to ANY scope, and an ARD lens cover for the objective lens is probably even more important. (That big bright ol' objective lens looks about like the eyeball of a giant squid from the front and I believe it to be instrumental to the survival of many thousands of dumb and not-so-dumb animals.)
 That said, Nikon scopes are certainly worth a hard look. They are very good scopes!
 
edited to add:
 -posted before reading Rancid's spray paint option-also a very good idea.
 If you go the tape route, Hunters Specialties has a fabric camo tape that looks better and isn't glossy like some paper camo tapes...

Burris Fullfield II in 2-7x32 with Ballistic plex comes in camo, also some of the Bushnells in banner and trophy series come in camo.

+1 RONK & RANcid fan...

j/k but if you can shoot from 600yrds and 800yrds you shouldn't need concealment.  
again
j/k about anothe topic being discussed currently... 
 
I have takin coyotes in the winter and use an old white throw to cover-up never thought about whiteing out the scope and rifle... I have always tried to be seen but to late to do anything...
 
Went with someone with a digital caller "hurt" "horny" "hungry" "hunting" "pups"... they came running each time was kinda taking the fun out of it.  They were causing the local farmers some striffe they kept on missing animals they used for their own food eggs, chicken, bacon, sausage...

 Nikon makes a scope just for coyote hunting, even call it the Coyote.
 There is a good review of it here on OT. Do a search for it i'm sure it will come up.
