Iny state we are not allowed to shoot them during rifle season because the DNR doesn't want the hunters to mistakenly shoot wolves. It really sucks because I could always shoot a few during firearm season.
A few years ago my hunting partner shot a coyote; he was in a very close quarters swamp and using a can call, all of a sudden there is a coyote quartering at him that darts off, then another one, then one behind him. He finally got.freaked out enough that he got out of there. On his way out his sixth sense tingled, he turned around and there is a coyote running down the trail at him, he yelled, "HEY!". The dog kept coming and he dusted it.
He was pretty freaked out.
Another hunting buddy was gutting out a deer that he had taken in the last legal moments of shooting time during archery season and a pack of coyotes kinda circled him and basically forced him to leave his deer. The next day we went out during the day and it was basically just bones.
To compound my fun in the woods we have a large cougar that has been caught on trail cameras right where I hunt.

They get shot. Unless I know I have a nice buck right on top of me, they yotes get it.

i will shoot the coyote 100 percent of the time, no matter what. Coyotes take about one third of the new fawns in this part of OK.

I am 100% shoot the coyote. If the opportunity arises the dog is going to die. We have way to many coyotes around here so we shoot them every chance we get.

I shoot em every time.

I guess if I had a monster buck I was trying to get on and one came by, I'd shoot the buck. But since that has never happened...the yote is going down.

I shoot everyone I see. If I know it is going to be a full moon I will bring my coyote call and try to call some in after shooting light for deer.

don't cut them much slack during bear season either

very nice. my biggest yote wass 43 pounds. two years ago, opening morning of muzzleloader, came right down a heavily used runway, nose right to the ground. .50 cal sabot from the ol smoke stick puts an aweful hole in one

Whenever i see a coyote i try to get a shot on one, i accually killed my first coyote last saturday (last day of rifle season) and a 4 point buck (that i also shot) walked out about 15 minutes after i shot the coyote from the same direction.

Pretty much sums up my feelings. And seriously how often do you get a chance to shoot coyotes? I hear them often but never really see them for a shot. If you are seeing them all the time, I have to believe you have a SERIOUS coyote problem and you better shoot them all.
