The American coot as a game bird

Manuscript that wonders if the American coot, also known as a mud hen, would become a game bird. Coots were considered nuisances because they took away food sources from ducks. According to the document, ducks used coots as buffers in order to better protect themselves from hunters.

Finley, William L. (William Lovell), 1876-1953
