Coyotes don't deserve the very painful slow death you think they do. They are like most mammals. Born innocent, playful, loving, etc. They learn to use the instincts and tools they are born with to become the way they are because they must to survive. They don't understand the amount of pain and fear they cause and they don't "deserve" to. They had no choice in being created and being born into the world. Also, the economic worth has absolutely no bearing on the value of any life. No living thing deserves to suffer because of what they are.

I have had the misfortune of going through some extremely painful experiences that, along with what science has learned and my own observations of animals, has allowed me to relate to some of the pain humans cause animals and it has really opened my eyes. Not to trivialize what you or anyone else has ever experienced or to suggest nobody else has went through as much or more than I have, but I have little doubt that if you had experienced what I have and learned what I have in relation to what science knows (& how) about what animals are capeable of feeling you would never feel the way you do ever again.

So your post not only suggests a lack of the ethics/morals that is expected of all hunters, but also a (understandable) lack of understanding about what you are talking about doing to a coyote or any other animal.

Now that is a great response to a despicable comment.

I shot and hit 3 in one hunt... only found 2 of them. I shot the alpha female and the pack kept circling my stand... it was creepy!

Shot this one while deer hunting in 2013 i believe. He came I'm on a trail initially smelling where about 10 turkeys had just walked through. He stood there a minute then ran off the way he came. About 5 minutes later, I had to take a leak...so I did. As I was zipping up, I look up and here comes the Yote about 50 yards out on a string! Straight in...Stops broadside at 18 yards, looking in the exact same direction where he initially came in, which was about 30 yards upwind of me now.
I'm convinced he heard the pee on the leaves and it sounded like a turkey or critter running on the leaves. He lunged forward about 20 yards and did a few 360's before expiring.

I don't know how many exactly but a good handful. When i switched from recurve to compound a few years ago due to an injury, the first 3 shots at fur were coyotes, and drilled all 3. I then missed my chip shot at a buck for my 4th shot at fur that season, which was my first missed shot at a deer.

I shot 2 with my recurve calling them in during a winter break from college years ago. Bright moon, snow covered ground, shot them at night. After i shot the female, the male wouldn't leave her, so was able to double up. I was a pretty excited 19 year old that night...drove straight to a party and celebrated HARD.

All of the ones I've shot with a bow, have been incidental while deer hunting.

Oh, and I don't shoot any animal in the guts on purpose.

That is creepy. I had 4 go by my deer stand about 10 years ago right at dark. I was wrapping the hunt up for the day and a yote goes by the stand. I had my release off. About 10 seconds later another yote goes by on the same path. I was thinking this is really weird. Anther 10 seconds goes by and another yote goes by. I'm thinking to myself there can't be a forth as I put my release back on. Sure enough a forth goes by and I gave him a carbon greeting card. I waited till the next morning to retrieve him.

I enjoy watching yotes and how they act. Broken the monotony of a slow hunt many times over the years.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

I shot this one in October. He had a pretty good coat so he's getting tanned. I was deer hunting when the opportunity arose, so I gave it a shot. Very memorable hunt for me. I've had many within range - usually hard to draw on.

I have had plenty of opportunities but let them go. Last thing I want is a dead coyote laying around my stand and racket associated with a shot when I'm waiting for a buck to come from a bedding area.

I have shot several, from stand. I have also hunted for coyotes with a bow, using calls and stalking.

I tried twice to stalk a big female we would occasionally see in the corner of a hay field. First 2 attempts I got busted when I was "oh so close"

The third attempt I was able to get to her without my wind busting me. I was at 30 yards of her, bedded in a brush pile. I didnt have a clear shot at anything but the head. I didnt want to take that shot, thinking I would only injure her (with all the stuff around, thought I may catch a twig)

SO, I came to full draw, held steady on her and barked. Yeah that sounded like a good plan at the time hahahah she bolted from the tree blowdown, ran straight away from me, I barked again and she stopped and turned long enough for me to send a shot I had guessed at 50yds. Got a straight pass through on her. After the shot I ranged and the point of impact, and it was at 52. SO the shot was near perfect.

I heard her crash below and started trailing her. 3 blade fixed 100gr Muzzy left me an awesome blood trail. SHE RAN almost 80 yards before expiring. Double lung, straight pass through, she must have been running on pure adrenaline.

At any rate, after the recovery and completing a task I had tried to do so many times before this dog, I decided to have a shoulder mount on a limestone pedestal .

It is still one of my favorite kills, and mount.

VERY challenging hunt too!
