I shoot a lot of buffleheads every year and eat them all. As long as you marinate them in some sort of acidic solution (I often use lime juice or orange juice with oil and spices) for at least 24 hours, they can be really tasty. They're also good to add to your venison/pork mix for sausage. I agree that the males are absolutely stunning and it's worth mounting one. I think they might be the most beautiful duck that makes the Chesapeake home in the winter. Snow geese are also on the menu for me. I hang them for 3-5 days as long as it's cold outside, then cook them fast and hot like a steak, or broil them wrapped in bacon. Hanging makes a big difference in tenderness (yes, I did a double blind test with two of the same size/age---one sat in the fridge and one that hung outside). Yum.

I'd prefer scooteroni. Lots of spices and maybe even thin it with beef.

Opening day was a bust, didn't see many woodies and not much shooting in genera in the area. Got a couple. No wind and the tide was so high I could not hunt my good blind and the woodies didn't move.

No pics, but I limited on Mallards and scored a Woody too.

I would have had at least one more wood duck but I forgot to reload my gun after the previous fly by

Had a lot of fun yesterday but the only thing I got was a "You are absolutely useless" look from the dog.

Lol my son kept mumbling something about “missed opportunities.”
We did manage to kill a few though. I caught a decent little smallmouth after the ducks were done. I love this time of year!

Went out today and got 3 wood ducks, which was better than Saturday when my friend didn't see a bird.
