    I would have to agree with some others. If they come in while I'm deer hunting with a bow then they better hope I miss. If I run out of arrows then I'm throwing any nearby hard objects. West Virginia (my native hunting region) had come overrun by them and that just was not the case when I was a kid learning about the woods and venturing out on my own. Fact is though they are everywhere I never see them. I hear them all the time but never see them. Perhaps if I worked on calling them in and actually hunted them it would be different. We have a year round season for them here to.. I don't think you even need a license of any sort to kill them but I could be wrong. The coyote is another big mistake of DNR and insurance companies (my personal opinion).

    Same here, when hunting with the bow if one appears, I drop it. I keep several different arrows in the quiver just for them. I also carry my rifle when I'm out & about, took out 7 two years ago while scouting for cow Elk. Open season year round in Nevada and no tags or permits needed.

    I was elk hunting last early season using a cow call trying to get a bull to come in, I was kneeling behind a sapling when I seen movement. I thought is was the bull but two coyotes come out sniffing the ground about 40 yards from me. I pulled my bow back put my 40 pin on him my meat seeker and green nockturals went thru the bigger yote like hot knife thru butter. I don't hunt them but if their in my sights and ruining my hunt I'll take'em out! No pics didn't care to.

    So far I've only done so whle deer hunting with a bow.... missed one at 50 yards, and missed one out of my stand... he looked up at me when I drew; they're skitterish little things LOL. I've thought about setting up a spot and try out a predator call and just hang out with my bow though, I could think of worse ways to waste an afternoon

    I've done coyote hunting several years ago, where a buddy got pretty good calling them in. We hit 4-5 different locations and he called in yotes at every site. What really got me was how fast them come in to a call. They don't sneak in - they come a runnin', trying to get to the wounded critter before their pack mates do. It's pretty exciting when that happens. Great way to spend some winter days when other game are not in season.

    I have only had 1 shot at a yote while in the deer stand and he jumped as I shot. I would love to whack one with a bow eventually. It's easy with the AR-15.

    I do not know anyone who does, it would be hard to get them in that close

    They're very tough to hunt specifically with a bow, as most posters have said, they've taken them while on a deer or elk stands. Very keen senses, and pretty smart, most taken are that year's pups. They will always circle around and get on the downwind side, very keen hearing and sharp eyesight.
