Default Will hunting coyotes on my new property scare away the deer?

Will hunting coyotes on my new property scare away the deer? Down here in ct we rarely see any more deer because the coyote population is getting so high and we dont want that to happen up in Ny so im thinking about coyote hunting...but will that scare away the deer? If it does, how long before they come back?
Thanks
Mike

well you can look at it this way. opening morning my buddy shoots a doe, the next day his dad shoots one around 8 am and then at 10 am. i shoot one.this is all within 200yds of one another. and we have seen deer after that too.

They might move a little from howling, BUT it's temporary and they will return to the area soon after you're gone.
Killing a few coyotes would probably do more good than anypersivable harm that use a howler might do.

Ya know I did a little experimenting early season, when I was scouting deer and had my Coyote calls with me. Does with young ones would split with tails in the air when I would howl! When I did this with bucks in the field they paid no attention to the howls, they just kept on feeding! I don't know what their reaction would be this late in the season! I say go for it, many a time I was Coyote calling and deer would all of a sudden be there! Go for it! Good luck!

The deer SHOULD stay around. I don't say WILL, because nobody knows for sure.But, kill as many coyotes as you can from the day deer season ends untill you get tired of hunting coyotes, and I cannot think of 1 negative impact that you will cause the deer herd.
