Note the ages of most victims, coyotes tend to try and get food (in most cases) a full grown person is too much for them to handle. I don't know where you are, but heavily populated areas tend to increase animal encounter as well, since the animals are being pushed out of territory.

Always walk to the stand with 4 rounds in the clip but nothing in the chamber, until after I clime up.
While I am sure that can change from state to state, I never considered it a volition of the law for the firearm to be loaded. Figure I was not hunting, but rather transporting it to the hunting stand. If the rifle being loaded is a violation for hunting before daylight, then the same could be said for that Glock on your hip.
While others have express opinions that a coyote will not attack, I personally have no experience with them, so I can not say. But Iíve been attacked by wild boars, and Iíve had a black bear stand up on her hind legs and act real nasty. Seems I stumbled upon an area with her cubs. And while hunting desert rams, in the Southwest, the guide and I had a mountain lion circle us.
In any case, glad you had a loaded firearm with ya, and you made it out OK.
Hunting weapon of choice

Basically yotes are harmless when it comes to adults. A few years ago, we had a nearby school kid walking when he was circled by a half dozen or so. No bites or any attack occurred. Don't feed is a good rule, unless you want contact.
I shoot them on sight since there are way too many up here.

Like the coyotes wouldn't ruin your chances, never seen deer and coyotes hanging out together. I think the deer would steer clear of the whole area once the coyotes presence was known.

I've hunted coyotes for years. They dont like to be around people much at all, and they are smarter than a lot of people too.
Even the ones in the city that are used to humans will bolt at the first sign of a person approaching. I know they are well in city limits around here, as I see them foraging in the neighborhoods and industrial areas. The minute you approach, they are gone. They are far more elusive than deer.
I ride dirt bikes all over the eastern half and midwest of the U.S... I've seen a few yotes while out on my bike, but its always been a quick flash of their backsides and they are gone.
I cant imagine one let alone two allowing someone on a on ATV to get within pistol range in a rural area. They must be the zombie yotes we have been hearing about.

In northern Arizona we shoot them on sight, The Babbit ranch (hashknife brand) welcomes varmint hunters w/open arms. I have found my CZ to be a perfect rifle for shooting them.
CZ 527 chambered for .223 rem, 3X9 illuminated retical mil-dot scope. A winning combination for varmints!

It's not illegal to have a loaded gun, you just cant shoot deer til after a certain time.

coyotes here in NEPA are pretty gutsy. which is good, because it saves me money on targets at gander mountain.

I would be more worried about running into a feral dog then a coyote..the coyotes around here (south kenton county) make a lot of noise and stay hidden.
