I've been pretty fortunate, I've only seen 1 bird with that.
Are they like maggots? If you dig 'em out are they moving?
You could save them for ice fishing
I only bring home about 8 birds a year though.

I had a bird like that in Oregon a couple of years ago. The round, hard fat nodules look just like maggots. I showed it to my wife, who is a nurse. She said, "Maybe that image and a reminder that you have already had a heart attack will make you look again at the Mediteranian Diet."

They're the size of a grain of rice, not really big enough to use as bait. I've been lucky, so far only shot 1 bird with rice breast.

Hutch, I thought you liked ducks over rice. What's wrong with nature combining the two for you? I've never shot one, but it seems when they come its in multiples. I've had buddies that shoot 2 or 3 in a shoot, which makes sense given the origin.

You're trapping already? Or did you just catch the picture???

They say you can eat ducks with "rice breast" if you thoroughly cook the meat, but the few times I have encountered it I have thrown the duck away. You are looking at a parasite.
