Rice Duck

Shot this lovely mallard on Saturday at Delevan. I heard you can still cook them up and eat them, but my question to you is would you still cook it up and eat this?

The bird has already been throw away. I am just curious to see how many people, if any, would attempt to eat it. From what I have read up on when you cook them the parasite turns clear and you cannot see them anymore and there is no change in taste. Just from what I have read. Anyone have any first hand experience in eating this?

I killed one with that earlier this year and there is no way you could have got me to eat it.

I got some last year and they went in the trash :sad:
Read the same about after you cook them but I wouldn't want to try it.

Cooking thoroughly makes it safe to eat, but who wants to eat their duck well done???

Csook -

Notice how little fat there was on that mallard. That indicates the tool those parasites have taken on that bird. Normally at this time there is a nice, thick layer of fat to help the bird get through mating. I throw mine too. I've heard it said that you could boil the meat and feed it to your dog, but I wouldn't want to do that for my dog. She works hard to help me so I want to make sure she gets the best I can find for her.

We used to pick all our birds..... at least those that weren't too shot up. Can't help but think a few of those were consumed..... :help:

Last season I plucked a nice fatty gadwall. After I was completely done plucking and cleaning the bird I just happened to pull back some of the fat and noticed a few grains of rice breast. Pulled back the skin and saw there was lots all over the breast. Wasted 20 minutes cleaning a bird that ended up going in the trash. Since then I at least pull back some skin on every bird I pluck to take a peek. I'm sure I've eaten a few, but wouldn't do so knowingly.

No way. That's a no brainer in my book.
