Ducks are not only some of the most stunningly beautiful wildlife that a hunter can target, but they’re also insanely tasty, especially a nice Mallard or Wood Duck. The meat is rich and deeply gratifying and doesn’t require a whole lot in the creativity department to make it taste good if you have your fundamental kitchen skills down pat. This recipe is a fairly simple affair inspired by a classic French dish utilizing fresh cherries for some added acidity and earthy sweetness. Put your Henry shotgun to work and capitalize on the bounty with this dish fit for a king.
