Pluck and gut them. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash the bird, then cut out the backbone with a stout knife, like a chef's knife. Salt liberally, and sear skin side in an ovenproof frying pan until it gets reasonably brown and lovely. Put the ducks skin side up in the oven-proof frying pan (cast iron is perfect) into the hot oven and cook for no longer than 15 minutes. It might take as little as 8 minutes. If you have a meat thermometer, you're looking for 135-140 degrees.

Take it out and let it rest 5 minutes. Grind pepper on them and enjoy!

Glad to hear it! Wood ducks and teal rarely need anything more than that. They're two of the best-tasting ducks in the air, IMHO.
