    Good... Is a stretch. I would say that the odds of getting one that is not punishment for shooting it (i.e. not good, but not terrible) is about 60%. I have never killed one that I would classify as "good."

    Could be, although I do like Yellowtail!

    I would rate gagwall, cinnamon teal, and spoonies all about the same as far as table quality and odds of getting an edible or bad one... I would suppose this will vary regionally and by the preferred diet of the birds in the area and time of year (later in the season, all of these birds tend to eat more protein, and in my opinion are less desirable...

    My kids love ducks, and I did a blind taste test... Served up some cinnamon and some gw teal... They noted right away that the cinnamon teal were "yucky," and my wife was less particular but could tell the the gw teal tasted noticeably better....

    The ones I have ate were early season birds from Nevada, diet could a factor. I don't think they are as good as greenwing teal but they aren't bad. The gadwall from Nevada aren't as good as rice gads or the sago get birds I shoot locally, spoons are edible, but not my favorite.
