D7000 focus with 70-300 VR. Strange focus issue. What settings do you use?

My settings -

I have the back button set to AF-ON continuous focus. Using single point focus in the center.

When I focus the camera never locks on. It constantly hunts for focus. What is a better way to set camera focus with that lens so it can lock focus?
Has anyone else experienced this behavior?
