Have you guys noticed that there are alot more coots this year? I've noticed twice as many coots before the season started, than there were in the prime of last season.. How do you think these guys affect duck populations? I noticed last year that the coots pilaged alot of my holes last year, and the ducks seemed to give up in looking for food in these areas and stuck to the resevoirs. The bag limit here in California is 25, but I think it should be more. I'm not going to shoot any but I think it would be a good idea to have waterfowl biologists see how these birds might be impacting other waterfowl populations and possibly extend the seasons for those that make pet foods out of them.
