I hunt on a friend's property and he has a standing order on coyotes. They have had a pretty big impact on the deer there. I was there a couple years ago with a couple new guys. One came back in and told a story about a coyote that had walked under his stsnd and the owner got after him for not killing it. Around my house I will shoot them no matter what. I'm not chancing one going after my 2 year old. I saw one chase my rott/lab mix back up to the house at 10 am one day.
