I went across northern Alabama this past spring with the family, in route to Gatlinburg for Spring Break. There are a lot of WMA's spread across there. Of course at that time, I would not expect to see many ducks, but they must hold all the Coots or at least the majority of them for the USA. Every body of water we passed had hundreds of coots on it.
