3 shots to hit a coot? I don't know about that.
I immediately looked around in every direction to see what they were shooting at and saw nothing. I have a good eye for birds. Grew up an avid duck and bird hunter. That was before I learned to fish.
Just three consecutive shots. From the same gun. Sounded like they were straight in the air as I couldn't get a direction on them. (didn't hear BBs flying by or see any wads in the air)
You never saw them
...they likely never saw you....
....i have been surprised by a kayaker or wader a time or two. Its unnerving for sure knowing things could have been much worse...
Then there are the paddle clowns that will drift thru your decoys.....
Respect and courtesy should always be given...
I was wearing a bright blue rain jacket and a highlighter yellow life vest. Grass wasn't high and my kayak was sitting in high tide. Their blind was pointed straight in the direction I was coming from with a line of sight down the bayou. If they didn't see me coming, they don't look around much for guys that were hunting.
And to be honest, there's no way to know for sure, but it was a pretty creepy ordeal. Got my heart going and nearly my bowels. Just wanted some thoughts from my fellow 2coolers.
