Almost every species of wild game in Louisiana has been used in the creation of gumbo. Because most Cajun men were hunters and trappers, it is not surprising that wild duck and smoked andouille were often used. Many times hunters staying at Reid-Toerner House in Lake Charles, La., will contribute wood ducks from the morning hunt and combine it with smoked andouille to create a magnificent gumbo for the evening meal.
