Video: Killer Coots?

Killer Coots?

Delta Waterfowl researchers captured some surprising video during our Manitoba canvasback/overwater nesting duck study: Coots harassing canvasbacks, destroying nests and attempting to attack ducklings. A member of the rail family (they’re not ducks), coots aren’t nearly as impactful on nesting waterfowl as some other predators, but they do cause predation to ducks.

    I’m with Riley on this one and will certainly shoot every coot I can this year.

    I hunt coots more than ducks. They are good to eat. I’m going to do my part and kill and eat more coots.
