This little guy

Saw this today... Kind of a crappy picture but I don't like to get too close to things as ugly as Oprah Winfrey

Trust me. 8 hours in a pond with leaky waders, to not fire a single shot... Is still better than work.

Ruddy ducks are beautiful ... Oprah on the other hand not so much .

I'd take a ruddy over Oprah any day.

Ruddy ducks are good eating, and certainly more attractive than Oprah. Strange though, that guy is in summer plumage.

Really? Do you skin em out or pluck em whole? Do you cook them with the board or leather shoe trick?

I think we've had this discussion before, but for those that may not remember this article from Hank Shaw::

That article says it all. Pluck em and roast. Their meat is dark and rich, but not fishy like many divers.

Have at em. They are still mud dredgers no matter what you read on the net. They were the #1 bird used in the case study for lead poisoning of Eagles way back in the 70's. Seemed those round pellets were abundant on those mud bottoms and perfect for Mr. splatter arses gizzard.
