well I've heard good things about duck so I have to try sometime. Are wood ducks good eating? Thinking of floating my boat down the river a few times during wood duck/teal season and maybe getting one or two.


Wood ducks are some of the best eating. They are fast, though.
Hit me up in the Winter and I'll share my (rather involved) duck plucking technique for maximum yield.

Congrats! Someone told me limb shooting them was illegal I am glad to hear it is not. i thought that was a dumb law if it were true. Again congrats on a fine bird.

the one CANADA goose i killed and cooked was very good. i just skinned it and put it in a roasting bag in the oven for about 3 hrs.

as for wingshooting turkeys, i have no experience with it and therefore no opinion. i just find it odd that some consider it unethical yet if you shoot most any other bird other than on the wing, well then, that is considered unethical by most.

The problem is, in my opinion, a turkey is far heavier, contains far more muscle tissue, and is larger than any other upland game bird:

Ring necked pheasant
Bobwhite quail
Blue Grouse
Ruffed Grouse
Sharptailed Grouse
Sage Grouse
Hungarian Partridge
Chukar
California Quail
Snipe
Woodcock
Scaled Quail
Prairie Chicken
Mountain Quail
Doves
Pigeons
Ptarmigan

I'm not saying that it can't be killed shot on the wing, because it certainly can, but I have seen a turkey in flight shot 4 times, knocked out of the air and hit the ground running. The body shot necessary to effectively incapacitate a turkey seems like it would do too much damage to the meat to be ethical and a effective head shot in flight with a typical turkey setup/pattern is a difficult shot. Again, not saying that it can't be done and that it is not done, just saying that I personally do not approve of it.
