I've hunted coyotes with my bow and only got one. If you use very small broadheads there is very little fur damage. Getting them in close enough is not the problem, its drawing without them seeing and string jump. I've shot at a few that were broadside between 20 and 50 yards and all of them jumped clear of the arrow at the sound of the shot. They are very fast. Its really fun, give it a try. set your rifle beside you for backup.
Same here. Have drawn on Coyote several times at 20 to 50 yards while out on foot for deer. They've been just too quick for me, plus I've missed once and hit under one. Sure made him jump........
I've also had a couple pass under me while in a tree stand, but let them pass.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
