How long do ducks last

Postby aschaef » Mon Sep 28, 2009 7:44 pm

Since I haven't slept more than 8 hours in the past 3 days the last thing I felt like doing after each morning hunt was cleaning ducks. How long will an uncleaned duck last in a cold fridge?

I agree with swampbilly...as long as they aren't gut shot badly...they will be fine. Especially if you just plan on breasting them out. :thumbsup:

I've got 4 from Friday morning and 4 from Saturday morning. I'll just make sure to clean them tonight then. Thanks for the replies.

I don't shoot them if I don't plan on eating them. Don't worry they won't go to waste.

I know the feeling. They keep for a few days in the fridge. Just keep lots of room for air to circulate around them, aka don't leave 8 ducks and a pair of honkers in the there!
