Yes they are dungeness. Never tried a blue crab myself but I'll find one one of these days. Just got through cooking them and now they are the color most people think of when they think of dungeness crab.

Smoke em! Kinda tastes like smoked liver. :lol3: Other than that slice them up and marinate them in ginger teriyaki marinade. Little broccoli and some rice, doesn't turn out too bad. That's what we do with most of our divers/sea ducks.

Here in Florida you can have six ducks, and five sawbills. Separate bag limits

The two we shot we ate and mounted. I believe that any bird can taste great but its how you prepare it and what other flavors you use. We don't see much in our part of the state in SE North Dakota so we mounted it
