    Speck guys and gals, this is a thread dedicated to everything about specks. Pictures of them, calling techniques, favorite decoys, theorys on new migration routes and growing populations, gadgets that help success, dog pics, Tule geese info. Any thing and everything that has to do with specks and only specks! Many of us are addicted to them and cant get enough of these wonderful birds!

    I harvested my first speck 38 years ago. They were a novelty in Nebraska then. I still remember how I shook in my boots as that flock descended into my duck decoys on one of the rain water basins! I was incredibly proud of the accomplishment because I had fooled them with my tube call! I greatly enjoyed eating that tasty bird as well. I have been lucky enough to harvest a few of these birds over the years, but still feel privileged and lucky to get a chance at working them. They have always had a tendency to hurry through the areas I hunt.
    Times are changing and they are starting to stay a little longer here now. Pockets of them can be found here and there later in the season every year. They have inspired me to practice calling again and also sent me scrambling to figure out better ways to hunt them. I am addicted! I love these cagey birds!

    Looks like a good supper sitting there! They seem to really like white. I see you got those beauties over socks. I cant tell from the pic..Any dark decoys out in the spread as well or is that more live specks in the background? :)
