Just shot my first ducks, a couple bufflehead hens! I filleted the breast meat off (about the size of a chicken nugget apiece) and now I am wondering how to cook these up. I was thinking of just throwing them in a frying pan with some salt, pepper and butter, but I figured I'd ask on here for some tips first. Any help is appreciated.

Lots of recipes on here if you look through this forum.
I soak them in milk or cream over night, then marinate a few hours in red wine. Cook them in oil or butter with garlic.
Did you say woodcock or woodduck?

You are going to have to marinate them with something, bufflehead are very strong tasting. They are fish eaters around here and their meat reflects that. You can salt/pepper and fry if you like chewy fishy liver.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!
