    Default coots

    Does anyone use them in the spread?

    Nope. Not in AK. I've hunted the lower 48 where they help out. I have yet to see a coot in AK. If you want a awesome confidence decoy get swan decoys.

    Agreed, I don't believe coots come this far north. However, I have been in coots a couple times. Bud

    Ya I got a couple last year because I was young and dumb to waterfowl ( still am young and dumb) but might use them this year to add little contrast to the set up

    Agreed.. Anything floating from a black milkjug to a coot decoy should help...

    Ya I think I'll just throw them in the back of the spread and see how they work if anything I'll paint them. Thanks all.
