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

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!
