Well for me the great coot debate is over,shot a couple at barrett on Sat breasted them out clean all the skin and fat off, little butter and garlic powder seared at high heat real quick and not bad at all,I would be real picky about where I would eat them from but not so bad over all.

Yep, high heat 1 min. on each side no more than one minute or it is trash. must eat rare. this is for fresh water coot. Salt water (the sea) coot, don't bother shooting.

Food is relative, but if you are a chicken breast type guy chances are you won't like much wild game.

Or you just over cook everything and make it all taste like shit. learn to cook.

What you don't like carp?
No. I love catching them, but I don't like them.
I used to catch them all the time. I had a guy working for me that loved them. He told me I hadn't had it prepared right. I took him 2 5# fish one night after fishing.
The next morning he came in with a container for me. He said he stayed up and filleted them. Then did his magic to them.
Still tasted like a bowl of fresh mud.

Ive been saying that for years. Everytime I shoot them I always get a funny look from other hunters. But to each their own.

Stand on coot feet and lift up by the wings makes breasting them out easy.

I can’t imagine them tasting much differently than ducks....same water same diet I know people that say they taste the same
