Nice shooting DNS. Pound for pound coyotes can be one of the toughest animals to kill IMO. I have dropped them in their tracks many many times but have also sat slackjawed watching some I knew I hit well run off like nothing ever touched them. I shot one with a .270 WSM at about 50 yds out of a deer blind a few years ago walking straight away from me so the bullet hit him midway down the top of his spine. He pancaked right there and to my complete surprise, jumped up and took off with only 3 of his 4 legs working. I tracked him down, he was leaving a trail of hydraulic fluid and parts as he ran, and found him about 40 yds from where he was hit. I turned him over and he had been pretty well hollowed out and to this day I cannot figure out how he made it that far in that condition.
