    I went on a guided duck hunt last thursday it was a BLAST.  We actually hunted some public land not to far from my house that I never knew existed.  We went in before sun up in canoes and set up in the cattails.  Before shooting light I bet around 100 ducks busted out of the swamp.  At shooting light we had some fun with a nice flock of mallards, a flock of teal and we even got a Juvinial blue goose in to our Canada decoys which according to the guys I was with is quite rare for this part of the country.  I went through a lot of shells and when we left after lunch we had 4 mallards, 2 teal a gadwall, a blue goose and a widgon. 

    Wouldn't you know it but I forgot my camera but the guide took some pictures so I'll try and post then soon.  It was a good time and I learned a lot about duck hunting.  I haven't been out in quite a while.  I can see how you guys get addicted to that in a hurry!

    Super stuff!  I'm looking forward to the pictures.  A nice mixed bag of  web-footed wonders as well.  I know of several duck/goose hunters around here that drop into little known spots and have great luck.  I am surprised with the variety of game that you found at this spot though.  Over all were the number of ducks and geese moving high?  It seems like they've been slow to move because of the amount of crop on the fields and the warm weather.

    I had some duck wrapped in bacon and grilled to perfection just last night. Pretty good stuff! We baked some of it as well but that got a little dried out. What's your favorite way to cook duck?

    I breast out my ducks and geese, cube them, bread them up real good and deep fat fry them.  A Mc Fowl nugget, you can eat it like that, or use the sauces much like chicken tenders.

    Glad you enjoyed yourself Big Buck, that was quite the show when they flew out that morning, only it would of been soooooo much better if they had waited 20 minutes longer when the season was open!

    Yes duck nuggets are great, get the shorelunch batter mix with beer and deep fry! it's like eating candy!,....just don't do it before a cholectrol test!

    I like using various 30 minute marinades teriyakee and pineapple is good, marinade 24 hours, dump everything into frying pan cook on medium to med/low until desired doneness serve over rice, quick, easy, and ohhh so good!

    I'll have to try those duck nuggets. I like to marinate breasts in Italian dressing overnight then put 'em on the grill and cook 'em to medium rare. Nothing's worse than over done waterfowl. I have never understood why people think they need to cook the crap out of wild game yet they eat domesticated animals that lay in their own filth rare. (head shaking) Whack'em wit steel and wrap wit bacon. Rinse and repeat.

    Chris, Rod here, I also live in Wis, Phelps, north central, and I agree that the duck noogies do sound delicious, but why not enjoy the WHOLE DUCK(perhaps you do) My wife found a recipe that is perhaps THE BEST IN THE WORLD, Roast Duck wrapped in bacon/marinated in OJ, OOhhh ssooooo ggoooodd, an inexpensive plucker and this recipe can be seen at www.pluckwitheasypluck.com   Thank You, ROD

    Hi Rod,

    Welcome to the forum. I here a lot about marinating in OJ and have never tried it. Usually when I do whole ducks it's either baked teal stuffed and buried in wild rice and mushroom sauce or whole mallard in the crockpot with mushroom sauce. I'll have to give your recipe a go the next time I blast a red legged northern mallard.

    Cheers,

    CL

    PS... I know your area well. I do some fishing just south of you in Phillips. Looking forward to seeing more of your contributions here on foremosthunting.com
