Let $F$ be an integral linear recurrence, $G$ an integer-valued polynomial splitting over the rationals and $h$ a positive integer. Also, let ${\mathcal{A}}_{F,G,h}$ be the set of all natural numbers $n$ such that $\gcd (F(n),G(n))=h$. We prove that ${\mathcal{A}}_{F,G,h}$ has a natural density. Moreover, assuming that $F$ is nondegenerate and $G$ has no fixed divisors, we show that the density of ${\mathcal{A}}_{F,G,1}$ is 0 if and only if ${\mathcal{A}}_{F,G,1}$ is finite.
