Typically I soak mine in cold water with kosher salt poured over the meat. The amount of salt I use varies with the amount of meat, about a few tablespoons of salt per duck.
Two things, use cold water and don't leave them in for more that an hour.
I usually do mine untill the water/salt solution looks good and bloody. The salt helps remove the blood and other impurities in a way that I'm not going to take the time to explain.
By soaking for a short time, your not marinating the meat. Just pull if from the water, rinse off and then do whatever you normally do.
I do this prior to cooking or freezing. I dress out the birds, rinse them, soak them, rinse them, and then freex or cook.
Also works great for fish!
