Hey guys, how are yas? I got my first duck yesturday, a woody. Great looking bird. I cleaned it already but I was curious if there was a way I could preserve the head? It's got great color to it, and it would be a really cool way to remember my first duck.
I would not bother you really can't except the bill. For the bird itself I like to soak the bird in water with a half cup of vinagar salt pepper some garlic. and some instant OJ mix like Koolaid ya Koolaid with the sugar. The bird will taste like prime rib with the bird flavor still intact. Soak overnight and roast.
Only a good taxidermist can capture the beauty of the woodies.
They are my favorite duck to hunt and to eat.
The bottomland out here is prime habitat for them and I have helped them pulled off a many of clutches with the wood duck boxes I had installed out here.
