Teal wood top 2- divers best prep in trash can. I avoid them like the plague.

Canvasbacks are actually not bad- in sausage

Quail best, and duck worst

Your dabblers (mallards, teal, black, woodies, pintails, gadwalls, etc.) are going to be the best tasting.

Diving ducks (canvas back, mergansers, redheads, buffleheads, scaups/bluebills, etc.) generally aren't going to have as good a flavor because their diet is significantly different than dabblers.

Keep in mind that a whole lot of it is contingent on how the bird is prepared. I've found that most people that swear duck tastes like [censored] have eaten only duck that is far overcooked - in which case it won't matter if it is a diver or dabbler.

Lots of misinformation on the Can. The Can is king! On the table, too. Breasted out with the skin on, blackened on an iron skillet. Best duck you will ever have.

I'll second that, we shot a couple cans earlier this year in east texas and cooked them up separately but at the same time as gadwall and mallard, the can was gone in a hurry.

Shooting ducks and throwing them away is called Wanton Waste and it's against the law. If you're advocating for that on a public forum, it's time to hang the waders up and take up golf because you're a liability and disgrace to the hunting community and its just a matter of time before you become fodder for anti-hunters.

The fact that you would even put Canvasback and sausage in the same sentence tells me everything I need to know. You don't like eating duck? Then either give them to someone who does or don't hunt.

Quail.

Chukar is better than pheasant.

They all taste the same in gumbo. I save the teal, mallards, woodies, gadwalls and wigeon for the bbq, the rest go in the gumbo bag for the end of the season.
