resident specks

I watched a speck fly in with a group of Canadas at the city lake this evening. Will they summer here or is he just super late? Kind of neat seeing him, one of the very few I've seen up close.

interesting you ask this. After bagging one last year I have become obsessed with them. I have been curious if there is enough in NEOK during season to make it worthwhile to add some specks to the spread.

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to have a few in the spread, but what do I know. I hardly ever hunt geese.

Me either, but since they upped the limit it's enticing.

I'd keep an eye on that speck. It may have taken a liking to a canada this season.

You sure it wasn't a cormorant?

Just giving you a hard time, that one has some nice tar for sure. Hen goldeneye on the far right?

Shoveler drake. I was a lot dumber then and didn't even think about it being kind of rare for this part of Oklahoma and ate the speck after that hunt.

Ah I see now, I didn't look at the wing.


If it makes you feel any better I wanted to mount mine but the wing was really tore up so I thought to myself, oh well I hear they are really good to eat. Well long story short my fiances mother really likes duck so i tend to give her some now and then, well my fiance gave her the speck breast thinking it was duck. So I didn't even get to eat mine. I have become somewhat obsessed with them now, would love to get another one and get it mounted.
