A Few Tips for Duck Season

Wood Ducks on the Wing! *


One Way to Pluck Ducks & Geese

Plan to pluck your ducks and geese dry.  According to MDH (my deer husband), they are easiest to pluck soon after shooting.

If you situate your ducks/geese over a bag or deep pot, you can pull the feathers down and into the container.  Pull down with the lay of the feathers.

Another Option

If this sounds like too much work, I have an alternative.  Delta Waterfowl president, Rob Olson has some great videos on cleaning ducks.

Breasting a Duck

Leaving a Wing Attached

Don’t Forget the Drumsticks & Thighs – Great info on how to BBQ a Goose!

Plucking Ducks

Dressing Ducks

Each of these are 2 to 5 minutes and well worth your time!

Tending to Your Decoys

Before storing your duck/goose decoys, spend a little time checking them over for next year.

This tip is from Chuck Barry, President of Texas Hunting Products (in Houston, TX).  To repair shot holes, use a short length of polypropylene rope.  Touch the lit end of a match to the end of the rope.  Dab the liquid polypropylene on the holes.

This operation can seal the holes.  However, if you check the repair before the area cools, you can use all those cuss words you’ve saved up (for just such an occasion)!
