New GHG Coot decoys for the passionate duck hunter
The new Coot decoys from American GHG are really great and clear proof of why GHG is one of the industry’s most recognized manufacturers.
Here you get a box of 6 drakes made in over-size to ensure the most visibility for ducks flying in. These decoys are the ultimate blend of economy and performance.
The material is ultra-strong polyethylene plastic that can last for many years of use, and of course, GHG carvers and designers have worked hard to recreate realistic feather details and anatomy.
The Coot decoys have a dura-weighted keel that ensures a flawless ride in the water.

Information on Coot ducks:
The Eurasian coot – also known as the common coot – is a member of the rail and crake bird family. It has a slaty-black body, a glossy black head and a white bill with a white frontal shield.
The coot breeds across much of the Old World on freshwater lakes and ponds.
The Eurasian coot is much less secretive than most of the rail family and can be seen swimming on open water or walking across waterside grasslands. It is an aggressive species, and strongly territorial during the breeding season, and both parents are involved in territorial defence.
The coot is an omnivore and will take a variety of small live prey including the eggs of other water birds, as well as algae, vegetation, seeds and fruit. It shows considerable variation in its feeding techniques, grazing on land or in the water. In the water, it may upend in the fashion of a mallard or dive in search of food.
