Coots don't typically decoy like other waterfowl... I've only seen it once in the last 10 years!! Heck, has anyone ever seen coots migrate??

I know a guy that gets covered up with coot in Danbury!! I'll pass your email onto him...

You know they say, "Once you go black, you'll never go back...."

I want to go Coot Hunting

Postby :-) » Tue Nov 12, 2013 5:42 pm

I have a couple dates open next week. I supply the boat, dog, decoys, and the blind. Fully guided hunts are $200.00/day 3 person minimum...tips are also accepted. Lodging is NOT included, but is available in the area.

Y'all water-swat the coots, and I'll cook em! Grilled some up a couple days ago, and was told they were really good.

I didn't try em, but my son & his buddy did. They begged me to let them shoot some on Saturday...I laughed & told them if they cleaned them I'd cook em.

The whole time they were cleaning the ducks & coots I was laughing inside...I was gonna teach them a lesson. Anyway I cooked teal, gadwall, whistling ducks, and a few coot for them on the grill. The favorite was the whistling duck...the coot was a very close second followed by teal, and least favorite was the gadwall. Sounds crazy, but it's true...my 5 & 6 year old girls liked it also. My wife was upset because she cooked a big roast for dinner, and all the kids liked the duck better.

Honestly, I can't get passed how ugly they are, but I guess you can't judge a duck by its color.

There is VERY little breast meat on a coot! Most of the meat is in the legs and gizzard...

You won't find me eating any!!

Coots just have the ugliest beaks and feet and the noise they make is awful. I think I have a deep welled hatred for coots.

You know. Really this is a management issue, sort of like what's going on with gafftop and hardhead catfish. As a Pouledeau representative, I'd like to remind you all about the delicate balance of our ecosystem. Gafftop, hardhead catfish, and coot, rails, morehens and clappers all must be taken, consumed and returned to the earth via the toilet. If more people kept these critters as table fare, we'd have less giant rafts of coot to worry about running our boats through, less gafftop stealing our croaker and top water lures making us think we had a big ass sow trout on the line … and more gizzards in our skillets. If you've never eaten a coot, you're a giant throbbing magical lady part. For shame the hatred towards such a majestic critter. Be damned those who damn the bird that bless many a gumbo pot and fryer vat.

For shame … for shame …
