Just one pic to get you all in the mood. No I didn't take it. It is my favorite mallard pic I have ever seen.[attachment=0:29qikjmm]cuppedmallard.jpg[/attachment:29qikjmm]

Here's one just to get Clark in the mood..... LOL. Pulled this from the Fuge. The Cali forum there is running a Spoonie eradication program (just for grins) and I volunteered to help with the Utah chapter. :lol: This however, is not Spoonies.

Hey man... nothing like a little coot stirfry... and they are certainly fun to stalk through the weeds.... keeps your sneakyness up to the right levels. :lol: I do like waiting for them to get closer and closer before putting the smack down. I even offered to take Clark on a coot expedition on Utah Lake but never heard back. Oh well..... 8) Here's some other ducks I posted on Bullocks too... not my pictures but ones I've saved in my picture file over the last couple years from different internet sites.

Wigeons




Spoonies (my new favorite... move on over coots)




Pinner


Greenwing Teal headshot.... I'd take a day full of teal anytime, over anything else.


And the token Greenhead park duck shot. :lol:

Sorry... the other guys answered your question. Yes, they are coots, numerous on pretty much every body of open water here in Utah. :lol: I actually started out "duck hunting" by chasing coots, teal, Mallards and whatever else I could stalk through the shoreline weeds on Utah Lake. I killed a mess o coots in my short six years hunting. I actually learned they are quite tasty too... don't expect too much but if you take the breast meat and the leg meat and slice it up, roll it in some spicy shake and bake and then panfry in a little oil till browned, they make dang good nuggets. Whatever you do, when pulling off wings and legs, try not to rip one open.... thats worse than getting a faceful of runny diaper. Yeeechhhh!!!
