Still a ways off but I expect the rains will put a big damper on teal season around the coast. Anyone remember past years with this kind of thing happening before the season. I have my teal tags already at least...least year I almost could not find any.

I've yet to make a coastal hunt, so no clue as to what the wet weather will do. But, and I hate to say this, but getting to the coast may not be an option during the early teal.

I just haven't found a good recipe for duck, so I leave them alone nowadays.

I think there will be more than enough water.

Cut the breast into strip, cover with De Jon mustard over night. Roll in whole wheat flower and fry.
A friend told me he sticks an onion in the cavity wraps it in aluminum foil and bakes it. I'll let you know about that one.
Grill it like you do dove only soak the breast in water over night, like I do dove. No liver taste barf

Breast them with skin on. Olive oil, salt, pepper... cook them rare/Med rare on stove. Drizzle melted butter on right before plating. Taste like ribeye.

Or

Jalapeño, cream cheese, slice of duck all wrapped in bacon. Throw it on the grill.

If neither one of these are good to you then you've got problems.

up to mix things up a bit instead of butter on option 1 use a combo of honey and soy sauce in the pan the last minute there on the stove. Drizzle the gravy over sliced cuts after it sits a few minutes food

Yes...water won't be a problem...but sometimes too much of a good thing is a problem. If a duck has 10 holes he can pick and you are in one then it's decent odds...but if there are 100 then your hunt might not be as good. Guess it comes down to scouting.

In Louisiana the storm surges would kill grasses in freshwater marshes and duck season would generally be poor.

Saltwater marshes would fair better in longterm but Teal would seem to move more towards the rice fields and scatter.

I usually marinate mine for four days and grill medium rare or make poppers. I use grill mates on the poppers.

I'm thinking I might like that. I never tried a teal. Never could cook a duck back in my younger years I liked. Mostly mallards and spoonies is all we ever shot though tank jumping.

first time I had duck I expected it to taste like a mud turd the way everyone talked. I cooked it simple.. salt, pepper and a hot frying pan to maybe just hair past rare. It was great and every duck after that as well. Never had it with the skin on but that's on the books for this years birds. Meat almost looks like beef and kind of reminds me of it to.
