I remember the first time I ever hunted Specks, they are really crazy. We used to hunt waterfowl Klamath Falls/Tule Lake area on the California/Oregon border. Hunted in a lot of harvested potato fields. The geese used to really love to eat the left over spuds in the fields. In addition to their crazy calls, Specks would fold a wing and tumble in the air when they decoyed. They also really decoyed well, seemed a little dumb compared to Honkers. The best eating of all of the geese IMHO.

no need to use spinners up there, how many deeks are you putting out? good shooting
Pretty small amount as we are always on the X. The standard spread here is.
4 dozen full bodies /handful of specks
Depends on the day but they fill in with dive bomb silos
3 dozen dive bomb duck socks
2 dozen dive bomb pintail silos
2 spinners in the hole
