    It depends on what type of area I am hunting. If I'm sitting in the woods, I'll take the bow. Hunting over fields or pastures, it's rifle time. I've shot a half dozen coyotes with a bow, and about the same with a rifle. Anytime I have a coyote within range during deer hunting, I let one fly at it. Doesn't matter if it'll possibly ruin the nights deer hunting, I'd rather have the coyote gone.

    I would shoot a coyote with the bow if they would just stop for a few seconds. I've seen them while I'm bow hunting but they never stop moving and usually they tend to hang in the brush. I've shot a couple while gun hunting years ago. Until this year it was illegal to shoot coyotes in the northern part of the state because of the wolves, but now that they opened up wolf hunting in Wisconsin they opened up the coyote season to year round.

    Popped a couple, but was deer hunting at the time. Shot both I think last year. One, left with his "rear wheels" not working real good. Later, found it dead way out in a bean field after the field was combined. The other I blew through his boiler room and ran a 75 or 100 yards. Must have had a couple gallon of blood in reserve because he left blood all over the place and still bleeding when he went down and slipped down a hill. About the same as when I rolled one with my .30/06, enough blood to make one of them horror movies. Throught brush where it went, me and the wife couldn't walk because the blood sprayed all over! Wife and I tracked that one for 2 miles and never did find it. It's laid down 3 or 4 times and left a puddle of blood every time. It just plain vanished.
    DC hunts coyotes and pretty much said the same thing, "they'll drop dead or run forever."

    A couple of years back, during a eastern plains whitetail hunt, I had a young coyote sitting straight in front of me about 25 yards. He didn't even know I was there. Unfortunately there was also too much brush between us (afraid any arrow would deflect before getting to him) so I waited to see if he'd move. He did and kept right on moving and only gave me one open spot to shoot for 1-2 seconds before he disappeared. I almost wished I had taken a chance on getting an arrow through the brush but ethics got the better of me, not wanting to would even a wound-be deer killer.

    Now that wolves are known to be in Colorado I'll be keeping an eye out for them too and if they happen to cross my path within range...

    We are infested with them here in NC. I was watching a couple deer during bow season and they spooked and I knew it was nothing I did. Then I saw the coyote tracking them. I did not have a shot. I did kill one that ran up on my corn pile looking for deer to track, and I killed it with the 50 cal muzzle-loader. A bigger one followed it and slinked off after that happened.

    I hate them. If I see a deer and a coyote together, I am shooting the coyote.
