About 10 years ago, California suddenly had a 50 bird limit on coots, WTF?
A game warden told me that so many European hunters had moved to California that they were shooting too many and they needed to set a limit.
he said since all they eat is grass, they taste just fine, but the only meat is in the thighs and legs as they swim all the time and rarely fly.
They used to swim right up to you, but not any more. FYI, when I was growing up they were called mudhens
