My Mini-14 never got any negative feedback from Ol' Wily. They just lay there, real quiet.
Same for my Ruger 77 Mk II light sporter. Granted, it shoots a tighter group than a Mini, but inside of a couple of hundred yards it's not enough to worry about.
Unless you're in really wide-open, short-grass country, it's pretty hard to get a second shot on a coyote if you miss the first. He's rather rapid about practicing being elsewhere.
