Come participate in our Coot Shoot.
Coots are seen as the mud bird that no one wants to hunt in Utah.They have been hunted so little and there are so many that the daily bag limit is 25. What many people do not know is they are a threat, to the waterfowl we love to hunt. How? It turns out that coots will raid duck nest, kill ducklings.... and if you haven't noticed there's a lot of coots (predators) out there. However, other states revere coots as a delicacy and a prized fowl to harvest. We have been asked by several local waterfowl hunters, to bring this one of a kind event to Northern Utah.
To help promote the harvest of Coots, each participant who successfully harvests two or more coots, on the event day will receive a Coot leg band.
