Coot shoot

Postby Canada-hammer » Fri Jul 12, 2013 8:00 pm

From what I have been hearing there is going to be a record number of coots this year. Going to be buyin some coot decoys this year. Who makes some good ones? Ik alot of you guys eat schit ducks, so what your favorite recipe to cover up the schit taste of schit ducks and coots? :beer:

I find that a healthy helping of attitude adjustment makes them taste a lot better.

Duckaroni sticks are great. I would challenge anyone who is shooting them in fresh water to toss a mix of breasts into a stir fy and tell the difference. I bet no one could tell which is puddler and which is diver.

Ocean feeding divers are another story.

This is the year I'm gonna pull off the limit of coots. I'm gonna find out where they are hanging and flat out wear my dog out that day. I want a pic of him next to the limit of coots he retrieved, then I'll grind up those coots into some nice summer sausage or peperoni sticks. You could make sausage or peperoni out of your neighbor and it would taste good.

Tell you what Skagit, If you can mind your p's and q's around here until the start of the season, I'll invite you along on the coot smack down. I think you'd really have a good time!

Just don't get yourself banned or I won't have any way of contacting you when the coots are rafted up thick. :thumbsup:

Easy to do, especially in your area. I have done it on accident once.

Its tricky though. If I shoot one, I want to be sure I can get enough flying by to fill the limit. I've only shot one coot my whole life, when I shot the next one I want it to be part of a straight limit of coots.

Paddle right into them pop up and unload. They don't really fly by, more like swim in.

Oh they fly just fine when given the proper motivation! I just put a motor on my marsh rat which should allow me to pull this off solo if needed. Motor up, drift down, shoot, retrieve and repeat. :thumbsup:

A buddy and I plan to mop up on some coot during early season. There is a local lake with thousands of them. Bella has turned into a perpetual retrieving machine. We are going to see if we can wear her out by shooting two limits. Should be a fun day.

seems to be a "coot" bug going around, I plan to shoot a bunch this year, as do a couple others Ive talked to.

My plan on a slow day is to dry and just drift my boat into a big raft em em, should have enough room for 3-4 shooters out the back.

bring on the "cooter" sticks!
