I don't normally watch the show, but it was on after Meat Eater, which I do watch. In the opening, I heard the host say they were hunting coot. Hunting in the Delta, in North California, they went out in a bass boat, let it come to a rest, and started blazing away. The host was careful to explain the rules for hunting out of a boat, and it seemed they followed them well. They just let the wind blow them into the swimming flock, and seemed to shoot most of them in the air. Probably a lot of editing there, but who cares. Then they took them to a local resturant, and cooked them in a Cacciatore sauce, after breading and browning to a med rare. Served them over polenta. After tasting them in the kitchen, and loving them, they served them to customers. Everyone loved it. Of course, nobody believed they were coot. So, there you have it. Coot. It's what's for dinner.
