I am not a duck hunter at all. I have friends who are. Well my buddy brought me a couple of cleaned ducks. I am in no way a stranger around the kitchen either. I prepared the ducks like a would a chicken or any other bird. When the birds were done, I did the carving up and was shocked by the dark red color of the meat. I thought the inside meat would look like chicken or turkey. After a few bites, I was on the phone with dominoes ordering dinner. This was the nastiest s!#* to ever cross my lips. He shot them that morning so I knew they were fresh. My question is how do you guys hunt ducks and eat them if they taste like what I tasted? These things had the gamiest foul (not fowl) taste in the world. Even tasted like rotten fish. Is this how duck is supposed to taste. If so, I'll never get into duck hunting, because I do eat whatever I kill. And I will never eat that again. What's the deal with this guys?
