Well, You are asking about two different things,

IMO for rabbit hunting pointers and beagles are good cuz for this issue you will need a dog with a high agility rate; but you will need a stronger breed for guarding purposes (like tracking down the coyotes) ... which could be German shepherds , Rottweilers , Pitbulls and such.

I believe walker coonhound is somehow average so it also could be a good choice.

you can compare dog breeds here . good luck
