in that situation i would bed a trap in the snow right in their tracks. First i'll set my trap, then i take a plastic bag and run my cable stake into it and punch a hole through the bag with the stake end so that it hangs out of the bag. Next i drive my stake right through the coyotes track. then i move the trap into the plastic bag, and wrap up the excess plastic around the bottom of the trap, then i push the trap into the snow right on top of the coyote track so that the pan is about 1/2"-3/4" deep. and finally i spoon snow on top of the trap and walk away.

Yes, and that's a good reason to do it. Eye appeal!

As for the deer bothering it, I have some trouble with deer hitting it but not a ton. One thing I do is put bait in the hay (straw actually) and some gland lure but no urine. Everything seems to be attracted to urine, deer included.
