coot shoot

Reply
 
Went to Lake Boeuf this morning and got 30 coot. Had 20 by 8 o'clock but decide to have a little fun and make some far shots. Took us only 25 min to get the last 10. All in all in was a blast. Birds constantly flying. We were letting them land in the decoys to get a little farther shot from other birds. The only bad thing is that I didn't see a single duck. Was hoping to get a few of them too but the were no wheres to be found.

Coots
I have an old cajun friend that eats everything....He told me all you have to do is cut the back out and everything else taste good. This is the same guy that says you can eat opposums, but you have to trap them in a cage and feed them corn for about a week.

Recipe
put the breast on a small board about 3/4 of an inch thick. Spaced about 1/2 inch apart and fill in the gaps with chopped onions bell peppers parsley. some people use celery and seasoning of your choice (Tony's) Lawry's Mc Cormick's etc. coat with a garlic butter and put in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. Remove from oven and scrape of the breasts then EAT THE BOARD!!!!

I brown my seasoning mix(prechopped mixes), then add birds, cook on medium for about 45mins, add TC's Roux mix and add ice. The TC's Roux mix makes a great gravy. Overall I cook mine for about 2.5-3 hours on low-med heat. Everything is tender and is just about falling off the bones. I cooked 5 on Sunday and between me and my 2 kids, there was nothing left. I even got my daughter(6) to eat the gizzard and heart. I cook the breast/legs/heart and gizzards.
