    We have bagged several specks over small spread of floaters while duck hunting. We put out four snow floaters with a dozen speck floaters and have invested in good calls. We are working bunches of twenty to forty with regularity. In my opinion they are as easy to call as mallards ( which by the way like the spread). We usually set them off to the up wind side five to ten yards of the duck spread.

    Yep I Agree, less and less canadas just like what happened to southern il. just dont get the amount of snow we used to. especially in wisconsin and chicago area which in turn put them here. kinda sad

    Does the specks and snows in the spread change the way the canadas work?

    Not from my experience as long as you keep the specks segregated. If you watch them on the ground they mix in groups but keep within themselves while grouped. Specks mix with snows freely. I try to keep the specks up wind in most instances.
