Lots of these buggers around each night I hunt.

First is it legal (during the correct season) to bait them with trapped carcasses, spoiled meat, etc..?

Second, is it legal to hunt them over a deer gut pile?

Up here, many of the roadkilled deer are snatched up by predator hunters and usually tied/wired to a tree for hunting bait. Good luck hunting "yotes".

I grab a number of roadkills and rope them to a tree. It may take them a bit to approach them but once they do, it will look like a professional cape job.

As you have read, the answers are yes. Be sure you anchor the bait down because coyotes are well known for dragging it to where eating is much less visible. I've known them to drag a complete roadkill deer (You must get a written permit from the DNR or local sheriff to pick one up off of the road.) a long distance to eat it in heavy cover. Good luck.
