Were they shot in brackish or salt water? If so, brine them for 2 days and smoke them slowly over hardwoods. Hickory or oak is good.

If they were shot inland and you have reason to suspect their fat is clean and tasty (cut off the Pope's Nose - tail - and fry it slowly, you'll smell whether it's clean or fishy) just roast them whole with salt and pepper and maybe a little Worchestershire sauce or a squeeze of lemon.

Here in California, ringnecks are pretty good eating; better than scaup at any rate...
I love all of God's creatures, properly prepared.

I just cooked up the some of those ringers, and it was some of the best duck I have ever had. I soaked it in saltwater with choped onions, a little garlic and some redfish magic for about 2 days. heated up a little bit of oil on high on the stove put the breast in a bowl with some whichteschere (sp) sauce, a little garlic powder and some mesquite seasoning mixed it all around for a bit and threw it on the oil for a few minutes, my first attempt at searing. took it out of the pan and let it sit for a bit, ate and repeated.
