What do you guys do with the ducks you don't eat?

I'd like to have some to dehydrate for dog treats. I don't duck hunt.

I would love to try some if you have any extra. I'm in Forney, Mesquite, and Blach Springs often.

Anyone use them for dog treats?

We try to eat them all. I've been thinking about taking a bunch of breasts to a processor and having some sausage made.......

Insert duck sausage joke here


We will try and have a big cookout and make a bunch of jalapeño duck poppers. I'll pluck several as well.

Jokes about duck sausage aside, my buddy had some dried duck sausage made (I think mixed with venison) and it was delicious. I;m planning on a large portion of our ducks getting turned into that this year.

Jerky. Use Teriyaki and what you would use for venison jerky. Can't tell the difference. Bit of Tabasco helps.

I'd like to try some duck sausage or any other way anyone knows how to make it. The last time I ate duck or hunted it I was 19 and tried frying it like chicken and it was not good.... kinda greasy. Our hunting consisted of jumping tank dams.

We eat the breasts. The rest of the carcas and organs go to our dogs. No waste at all.

Key to cooking...rare to medium rare. Cook it like an expensive cut of beef. I often stuff with smoked gouda cheese and jalapeno and wrap in bacon...grill over hot flaming charcoal until bacon is crispy. .tastes like bacon wrapped filet.

The best way hands down to cook duck is:

Place it on a cedar plank breasted or plucked whole
Throw the duck away and eat the cedar plank.

That is what I do. After season in Feb I take all my duck, geese, and any other small game I have left to Kubys to have sausage made from it. Even Mergansers get breasted and thrown into it. According to my extended family I share it with, the stuff made from the waterfowl/all game tastes better than the sausage made only from venison. I agree.

Kuby's stuff is good. Last season I found a guy who wanted all my ducks and would clean them. I can't remember eating a single duck and only cleaned a limit.

Guy is the biggest proponent of duck sausage on this board...just be careful if he offers to share grin rofl

This is more along the lines of my expectations but too many people keep replying with constructive ways for people to eat their ducks rather than give them to me.

Ha!!!! Now quit it cheers

Part of your problem is you were most likely shooting ring necks if you were tank jumping.

I eat every duck I shoot. Put it in a gumbo and you can't tell a difference.

If you want to bring Judd out of hibernation, just make a post about duck sausage, he will come out of the wood work. Judd don't don't like just any duck sausage tho, he likes big fat ones. eek2 grin

Seriously, I did Kubys duck sausage twice. First time it was excellent, however I could not taste any duck in it, and I wonder if they threw away all my duck and just gave me pork. So the second time I did it, I told them I could not taste any duck last time, so the second time I could taste the duck, it was a lot dryer, and was really not that good. So not sure what to think. End of season if I have a lot duck in the freezer I will try it again tho.

Mallards I like to eat like a streak, I breast out but leave the skin on, cook on cast iron skillet very tasty. And I try not to freeze, eat it freash, but like to age it a week or so.
