My favorite is a mallard that has been eating peanuts for about a month.
With the exception of teal, we turn almost all of the ducks we shoot in SETX into jerky and summer sausage. We pluck most of our teal in SETX and put them on the smoker. All of the ducks eat the same crap in the marsh down here so they all taste pretty bad.
I'm with you on the mallard that has been eating peanuts for a month, or a Canada goose or a Spec...
Otherwise, for everyday typical birds...teal are our favorite. Most other ducks get turned into jerky for us too.
We eat teal every week during season though. One of my family's favorite meals, even my 3yo and 5yo love it.
