    They look pretty elegant when there are no other birds working.

    Apparently I am not as familiar with duck nicknames as I thought. What is a bootlip drake? or a Hollywood?

    Don't get me wrong, I will shoot them if I must. I prefer not to.

    LOL. To quote one of my buddies, "You just put on Facebook, "Limited Out.". You don't post pictures of that day's kill."

    a Spoony,Spoonbill....thats what we call them down south in Tex and Louisiana...."Hollywood" because they look like Daffy Duck....known as a trash duck with the guys I hunt with, very poor tasting duck, pretty plumage, but will decoy to just about any set up and call

    Id never seen one before, and when I saw all the color landing in my dekes, a load of number 2's dumped him.
    Im not a meat hunter per say, but if something I shot turns out to be inedible, I can always use it for training in the off season.

    Spoonbills taste the same to me as other ducks. I eat lots of them. They decoy easy and offer lots of shooting for the new dogs. One of my staples.
    YUMMMy Had a batch for dinner yesterday and lunch today.
    A couple of tips from rtfer's made all the difference in duck preparation,,, they probably never thought it would work on shovlers.

    nothin' wrong with a rice fed spooney!

    as for taxidermy, my wife does not have ducks in her decorating plan! after we married i came home one day and she said, "the bass are on the bed." i thought she meant she wanted to go sight fishing for big sows in shallow water. nope, she had taken all the double digits off the wall and laid them in the guest room.....on the bed!
