[rquote=1503788&tid=104907&author=ducks1]I am tellin ya,say what you must about coots. I have shot tons this year. If I cooked a mess of ducks and threw the coots in you wouldn't even tell the difference. I bet all of you that say oh those are gross haven't even tried one before. Its hillarious what folks will believe if they hear it enough. Oh and I wouldn't shoot anything I don't eat or take to the yaxi shop. [/rquote]
To each his own, I would never eat or shoot them fishy ol ducks!! If you are that hard pressed to shoot at something, get a beer can. It ain't like some great "COOT" CALLER called in a flock of coots. Take em guys.....that is a seriuos joke. I've heard down in the swamps of LA people eat them things, but only after they run our of **** and possum. When I lived and hunted in AR for 13 yrs, we wouldn't even shoot blue bills. No sense shooting something we wouoldn't eat. Teal is handsdown the best eating duck, followed closely by green head's/susie Q's.
BLUF; don't be killing any coots to eat, they are a fishy duck
