Default Stainless Steel Barrel?

Come next weekend I'll be hunting coyotes here in NY.
I'll be using a caller, decoy, and light, possibly a ground blind and hunting them with my AR.
My queastion is this:
Will the 24'' stainless steel barrell on my AR spook the yotes? The light will be attached to the scope so it is bound to shine on the barrell too!
Second, if I wrapped it in camo wrap would that change the "harmonics" or something?
Third, what are the chances of the yotes catching a scope glint?

If you're using a light and have the coyote in the halo of the light they won't see your barrel or glint from the scope.
I'd suggest a can or shroud on the front of your light to direct and concentrate the beam.



Don't be a newbie and leave the inside of the shroud shiny. Paint it flat black at least as far back from the end as the shroud is wide. I paint the entire insides flat black on my shrouds.

If you're worried about barrel glint, camo tape will not affect barrel harmonics unless you apply 40 lbs. of it to the barrel lol.
