    I hope the boundary line is changed and the season is opened earlier. The ridiculous jog north that they made once the line reached Clinton county really makes no sense. I'm not sure how to get them to listen, but I'll be talking.

    Specks with a few snows mixed in the migration yesterday. Pintails and GWT, before sun up yesterday.

    In the last couple of years we have seen lots more specs migrating through our area. Wonder what caused the change?

    Speck numbers are increasing rapidly.

    We too are seeing a lot more Specks!!! I’m sure it is the population boom that is helping. Have been giving some thought to adding a few Speck decoys to our late season spread!!!

    Good luck

    Your speck increase may be due to a shift in migration patterns as much as a population increase. We have wintered significantly fewer specks through the central part of Kansas the last few years. My guess is they’ve moved East. They sure are fun to hunt. Hearing your reports has me worried that our numbers around here will be low again.

    Could be. If the baws on the LA forum are seeing alot more juvies, early in season, could be both.

    Spinning wing decoys are causing specks to change migration patterns.
