Default Do you eat mergansers?

Had another nice day out yesterday. Shot a few mergansers, BIL got some too and another hen mallard. Shoulda had a goose. It came outta nowhere. Landed in the spread then wouldn't fly!Oh well. Let it go for another day.

Anyways. My BIL said the mergs tasted crappy. But I hate not eating something I harvested. So I go home clean the mallard. Goto clean my first merg and the smell overtakes me. Something along the lines of tunacan water and swamp muck. The meat looked like beef liver (which I like) but I got through it and their in the freezer (boned out).

Any tips or suggestions? or am I in for a "Real Treat"

I gotta a feeling they'll taste like they smell.
