Directions:
Dress two mallard ducks, hang outside overnight to chill or freeze. Rise up early, 5:30 a.m., have breakfast then cut up the chilled ducks, roll in flour seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. Place in No. 8 dutch oven, cover with lard or oil. It doesn't take much oil, for two ducks fill the dutch oven. Before you take off on your daily run of traps, place two sticks of wet or green wood in your already hot heating stove. Cut off top and bottom draft. When you return around 5 p.m. put dry wood in stove and open dampers. When ducks begin to brown pour off most oil and brown a little more. After 12 hours wading water with gum boots on, you can take care of at least one or more ducks. Serves: 2 hungry men Prep: 24 hrs.
