Default IS THIS??

Is this a female woodduck? I'm new to duck hunting and I haven't studied my species. Thanks for the help guys.

Not one of your better eating ducks[:'(], but I have tried a few and to my surprise one of them was not too bad. You can hide them in a gumbo. I don't shoot them however. Would much rather put Mallards and Gadwalls in my gumbo. The drake makes a pretty mount though.

I think that since my buddy already cleaned it that he is going to cook it up just to try. Why not. It won't kill me will it? LOL!!!

I have tried them before. They aren't that bad. Most of the time they eat the same stuff other ducks eat.
