    Cook them on cedar plank, through duck out and eat plank. Only duck that’s worse eating is a Ruddy Duck.

    I never had an issue with how they tasted ... better than Bluebills, Goldeneyes, Buffleheads and the rest of the ducks that have been mentioned ... so try them skinned and breasted out.

    Good god Jerome! I bet you'd eat a dog poop and gravel sandwich and rave that it had flavour! You're the first person I've ever heard that will say they'll eat them. I have NFLD friends who like Murres , Scoters and Eiders, but wouldn't touch a long tail (even with 12 Black Horse ale in them).

    LOL Mike Miller must have the constitution of a billy goat. Marinated or not,those fish ducks could gag a maggot.
    If you're too big to do the little things that count,you're too little to do the big things that really count.

    Hello Fenelon,

    I enjoyed your response ... still laughing at it.

    I tried eating a Black Scoter once ... my mother prepared it the same way as my Longtail Ducks and I was able to swallow it ... barely!

    I have also tried eating a Common Merganser twice ... vomited both times!

    I had a friend from India however who loved them (mergansers) as much as any other duck that I had him try ... "taste is in the mouth of the beholder" ... I guess.

    I am looking forward to my first Tundra Swan dinner.

    Jerome you should try some of that Swede Surströmming if your gut is tough enough to handle long-tail duck ! It's basically rotted herring. The cans are swollen and they bubble when they are opened. Litterally smells like pig s$%t. Most people will puke as soon as you crack the tin with an opener. I knew a guy that opened a tin once in his house and it almost got him divorced. As soon as he cracked the tin and the stink hissed out, his beagle whined and started grinding his neck into the linoleum floor. We had a kid in grade 10 eat a piece as a dare, and he washed it down with a warm can of V8. He belched it up about 40 minutes later in chemistry glass and blew the stink through a hollow Bic pen body, onto the head of the girl that sat in front of him. She promptly vomitted on the floor. Three of us got sent to the office because we couldn't stop laughing. We always wanted to bring some to a movie theater and crack a tin in the dark right after the movie started. I have regrets to this day that we never did it........ (but we did take a Gerber baby food jar with road killed skunk anal glands into the highschool grade 9 dance!!)

    Fenelon,

    I think that you may have missed your "calling" in life ... you should have been a comedian instead ... laughed so hard that my eyes were tearing up!
