I cut the meat into small pieces, soak it in salt water in the fridge over night, change the salt water and put em back in the cooler for a day or two then rinse.
Do them up in bake and shake, get the grease hot, deep fry the pieces fast (only a minute or two to get the blood out) and serve with plumb sauce.
We need a drooly smilely.
Don`t bite down on any shot, it hurts!

 I have duck hunted with a BPS 10. I bought this gun mainly for goose hunting and it has a 30" barrel on it. Its a little to top heavy for duck hunting out of a blind. If I had a shorter barrel I would use it more often. I guess for now I will have to stick with my little 3 1/2"  12 guage. :) :)

Blue Bill Ducks areThreatened in Michigan

There are only half as many blue bill ducks, also known as scaup, in North America as there were two decades ago, and that has Michigan scientists and environmentalists worried. Losing half of something is of much concern.

Scientists say that the ducks may be dying after eating zebra mussels, clam-like creatures that were accidently introduced into the Great Lakes in the mid-1980s.

Scientists suspect mussels are poisoning the ducks. Zebra mussels filter water and any toxins, bacteria and other impurities in the water stay in the mussels. Blue bills gorge themselves on the little orange-and-black clams.

 If you want quackers you need to come to Eastern Arkansas.  Every morning and night the skys are black with them going to the fields to eat rice.  Geese are so bad that there just about open season on them  and they turn the fields white and it looks like it snowed.  I have hooked their feet under the matt clips at the car wash and blasted away.  Now there is a sign at the car wash now.

  "No plucking - goose or duckling"
  "If caught, your goose will be cooked"

   I tried to wash the bay down but the DanG feathers went every where.  We need new pillows this year so I guess I will have to hand pluck.  20+ birds is a bit of plucking in one sitting.

We had a good opener, 21 ducks between 4 of us. Would have done better had our shooting been better. As for eating them, I prefer to cut the breasts out and make jerky. It comes out better than beef jerky, very lean.
We get a decent number of bluebills later in the season and they make for some fantastic shooting, but are almost inedible. They feed almost exclusively on small clams and taste so fishy that even a strong jerky recipe still leaves a strong fishy after taste in your mouth. So we have all but stopped hunting them. I have been told that the best way to deal with them is to cook them like fish, in a chowder… but I have not tried that yet.
