Freezing Duck to store

Does duck do well in the freezer?

If so, how long does it keep?

small packs (4 breasted teal=2 breasted mallards=1 whole mallard), double wrapped in freezer paper, frozen then placed in gallon size freezer ziplocks have stayed fine for me until the next season. legs can be taken off the birds and frozen in quart ziplocks half full of water. i like to do the salt water soak for a day or 2 before freezing the meat (see "brining" thread).
