Hard to beat a lightly brined rotisserie roasted duck basted with green peppercorn sauce and glaze of choice with wild rice on the side . . .

Today was our last day of waterfowl season. Went out with a bang.  

We breast our ducks and geese and take them to the butcher and have them made into pepper sticks..  yummy

Ought to be able to clone that drill attachment for < $99. The ?silicone? "fingers" have me scratching my head for a secure mounting design, source for the fingers (or raw material)and/or a possible substitute.

https://www.mcmaster.com/silicone-rubber-rod-stock/food-industry-high-temperature-silicone-rubber-rods/    link is for foodgrade silicone rod stock in a variety of diameters.

3 feet of 3/8" or 1/2" is about $10-$12 . It's not "crimped" so that hurdle will have to be vaulted.

Cut up  gum rubber shoe soles from some old Wallabee's would be cheaper, but not food grade:aw-shucks:

Yeah it was a good hunt. It warmed up here for the last week so it opened up a couple of our frozen cattle ponds we hunt. Very good closing weekend.

My father inlaw manages a duck club where my wife and i grew up. The money that some of those members would pay on gadgets to clean their birds was insane. Those little plucker machines sold like hotcakes out there for a while in the late 80s and early 90s. They didn't seem to do a very good job on the pin feathers and then they would start to rip into the skin and meat. Maybe they have improved over the years.

It looks like something you would see in an adult bookstore.

I think I will just keep "skinning the bird" the old fashioned way.

So ,you are going to keep waxing your bird? 

 Have you any local salons where you've asked if they could wax your bird?

There are a hand full of places here that specialize in bird waxing. I haven't had my bird waxed at any of them but I hear they do a fantastic job.

I won't hunt with guys like these. It is always the same story. First they talk about plucking their duck all the time. Then they want you to watch them pluck their duck. Before long they are showing you pictures of guys plucking their ducks. Pretty soon they are wanting you to pluck their duck for them.

I'm happy skinning the bird in the privacy of my own duckboat. Call me old fashioned I guess. Not to judge guys who are into that sort of thing. Im open minded and all. I just would rather hunt with my own crowd.

Are you sure you don't have this forum mistaken for another more "open minded" forum Bob?
My guess is you just want to drag this thread over the line.
I'm sure that more than a few the Nugget Shooter readers are wondering if they want their kids to read your warped drivel.

Now wait just a minute, don't sell yer self short... you just did post a plum good thumb plucking technique. I wonder if rubber finger cots would help the process?:89:

That was a thumb skinning technique. You break the skin and peel 'em. Not pluck em'.

I'm not sure you could improve upon the process. I do wear gloves when field dressing dove but I generally don't bother with quail. From the looks of that video a duck peels quick and clean.

Turkeys are not so easy. You might have to cut the skin up the breast rather than just grab it and split it. But I bet you could peel a turkey in a few seconds if his jacket had a zipper in the front.

Nah.   He said,  "you  roll the feathers off"(those teals he was pluckin)...

 There was no skinning done  , and, as for skinning turkey:barnie::snapoutofit: that's too good to throw away.

I was talking about the first video. Field dressing the ducks.

Not those hillbillys plucking their bird on the internet. That's just sick. And wrong.

When is the last time you plucked a wild turkey Stillbilly? I have plucked a couple and im not doing it again. Not for a mouth full of bumpy birdskin.

Maybe if you had a big pot of boiling water and/or some freaky silicone thing strapped to a weed eater. Jerking those big feathers out is rough and it is a gruesome job man. Not to mention big ground birds have all sorts of mites and bugs in those feathers. By the time you pluck a turkey your arms are sore and you have critters in your sexy britches.

Cauldron of boiling water topped witha pot of melted wax seems a good alternative.(see than Louisiana  link).

Dip the bird for a min or so then slowly pull out with the wax coating, chill, then crack off the wax(and feathers).

You are some sort of a hot wax freak aren't you Stillbilly?

A turkey hunt in my neck of the woods does not involve any cauldrons of boiling water nor a hunk of wax. It may work well. But a flap of turkey skin is not worth packing your candle making equipment over the continental divide.

I'll let you wax the turkeys. I'm just blasting them and peeling them like a bull frog. 

I will admit the skin sure makes them cook up nice and gives them some fat. That is why I plucked the ones I did. But instead of trying to give a gobbler a Brazilian hot wax I use a plastic baking bag and brine. It makes the meat nice and moist and it is infinitely easier.

So wax on bro. Or wax off. Whatever plucks your turkey.

Never plucked a one, Bob .  I only hunt fir butterball turkeys. They're genetic  engineereed to be featherless.

That is like boneless buffalo wings. Boneless buffalo are no fun to hunt because they just lay there on the prairie. You just walk up and kick them a couple times and that's it. There is no sport in it.

I bet they use hot wax to get the feathers off a buffalo wing.

This was an interesting and informative thread until bob took it over with his bs about boneless buffalo, sexy britches and other perverted innuendos.
