no manners **coughs** Fetching some freshwater mussels to eat from the riverbed. Spotted a river duck! Grabbing branches to use for cover. Swim gently towards them moving slowly and silently. Once you are close you can judge where they are and dive under to swim to them. And grab them for dinner! The duck is killed by breaking the neck quickly to limit pain. Then you can pluck it. Light a fire and put the bird on a spit for roasting. You should cut and remove the innards first. Holding the duck in the flames first will make the skin crispy. Keep it moving to cook it evenly. The fresh water mussels are cooked at the bottom edge of the fire where it is very hot. The duck is then cooked slowly above the fire to cook the meat inside.
