My favorite is a mallard that has been eating peanuts for about a month. food

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.

Y'all boys sound like y'all don't know how to cook up a good duck.... Dry aged sous vide duck is hard to beat once you learn how to do it. We pretty much eat duck every weekend of the season using this technique

I will post the full recipe this season once we start collecting some birds.

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.

Mine almost always get made into a gumbo. On occasion I might make poppers from teal, but big ducks are almost always turned into gumbo. Easy to make and everyone loves it.

When I was young, my mother believed ducks should be cooked until all sin and hell had been cooked out of them. Tasted like liver. The first duck I cooked myself was a canvasback. Rare and way better. I've probably had better tasting birds since then but that bird gets best tasting from me.

Hard to make that call between Teal and Wood Ducks.

My favorite by far is Wood Ducks...I did a side by side comparison with Mallard hen, Gadwall drake and hen, and Woodys last year using same cooking style and the Woody won!

Find a Can or Pintail with very white fat, pluck him, gut him and roast him whole as hot as your oven can get.

500 degrees if you can for about 20 minuets

Serve with a red currant sauce.

Marinated teal for 24 hours or longer is hard to beat grilled rare on mesquite. Rest of em end up in tamales.

Easily black belly tree ducks. Pretty pink meat. Even better than woodies.

Mallard for me. I pluck them and bone them. I end up with a whole boneless duck. I truss it back up. I boil their ones to make a stock.
