One of my hunting buddies LOVES mergansers. He will pass up every other duck for a change to get one. Claims there are best plucked and grilled.

We always joke that if you fillet a merganser real thin and deep fry it, it will taste just like catfish

He passed on some years ago and I do not know who took up the torch to rid the state of them.


I’m not in Tejas, but I never pass on a shot on one. Sumbiches will eat every trout in your pond. My late father in law called them water turkeys also. Local waterfowl hunters call them “double-enders” since both ends have a similar profile in flight. A load of steel 2’s or BB’s makes quick work of them. None of my Labs will pick one up! LOL. I guess they stink. Won’t pick up a Merganser either.

I would love to hunt puffins and would in a heartbeat if I could keep one to mount. We have them sort of locally off of Maine. Alas, they are off-limits...

Ask him if plucking makes them any better, pls.

I shot a coot one time and tried to eat it. Pure "Mud Duck." Threw it away. I took some city boys duck hunting once and one of them downed a water turkey. On the Texas coast that's what we call cormorants. They smell like rotten oysters so we never attempted to eat one. One snow bird lady killed one and thought it was a goose and no body had the heart to tell her different she was so proud of it. I'm not sure what a puffin is but have a feeling I'd rather not know. Now days the only thing that's wild and fly's besides dove, quail, grouse or pheasent, is a speckle belly goose or a sand hill crane. Maybe a pintail. Mallards around here get fishy too.


What goes up must come down, what goes around comes around, there's no free lunch. Trump won get over it!

I remember shooting a few "spoonies" in SE Texas as a "yute"..., the few we cleaned were full of parasites imbedded in the breast meat. No thanks.
