Do you know/understand how the hot wax works? If you don’t, google. It works great.Do you guys dip your ducks/geese in hot water before plucking?
I use and preach this method. Try and pull the skin "down" from the cold wax rather than the wax up from the skin. Works wonderfully and you can reuse wax.Do you know/understand how the hot wax works? If you don’t, google. It works great.
basically, melt a bunch of perafin wax in boiling water. Submerge goose in pot, keep dipping underwater. Hang bird and let cool/dry. Then peel like an orange. Works pretty good.
Saves on early onset of carpal tunnel.
i concur. stand at the alter of duck fatPluck the feathers, leaving only down.
Dip in hot waxy water then Dip in cold water to set the wax. Remove the wax.
You’ll get an incredible amount of fat from a goose this way. Follow Hank Shaw’s recipe exactly for roasted goose and have some jars on hand to store the fat from the pan. Sweet potatoes roasted in goose fat will change your life.
My 12 and 10 year old are great duck pluckers for me! They race each other while I handle the knife work! It’s fun and a win-win for everyone!!places where waterfowling is popular. Arkansas, Sac Valley, etc.
Drop birds off, come back, birds are plucked.
pay guys who plucked.
I used to pay my daughter $5 a bird to pick. She grew up. Damn it!
