That's an interesting question, because I don't know what the difference in the process might be, but I have the impression that dry aging lasts a lot longer than the typical couple of days for hanging.
Hanging is with the entrails in and feathers on, right? Dry aging is after plucked and drawn.
Recipe in OP says:
Dry off the duck and remove remaining innards. Remove the breasts and set aside. Use the rest of the duck for confit and stock.
So per balex, this is hung, not dry-aged.
I give up. It's all moot for me, anyway, since I already bought and broke down my three ducks for the year. Six legs for confit, six magrets, and the rest gone into stock (without him having to tell me).
