No offense taken. I have never harvested a canvasback and that would be very cool. I like duck hunting, don't get me wrong, butm ost of my access is to goosey places so that's what I focus on.
I've found cooking goose is a lot easier than duck, pulled goose is awesome. I find that marinating it in beer takes a lot of the gamey flavor out, which I don't mind but my girlfriend hates. Since I'm usually cooking for 2 or more I have to keep that in mind.
I have trouble getting duck to come out as good and prefer eating goose. If you have any good duck recipes I'ld love to see them.
Have a Merry Christmas!
