I hunt your area and have had great luck flagging specks - from a distance and in the middle of a big spread. The rubs are that specks seem tend to look things over a lot harder than the northern Canadas I grew up with and most of our speck hunting is done from pit blinds or out of tall levee grass that it's best not to draw attention to. I'd suggest trying flagging on distant specks but be very cautious about overdoing when they've turned and focused on you. Fwiw, though, I very seldom flag now that we're no longer working out of big white spreads for them, and when I do, it's a desperation move like simply waving my hat at birds that showed interest in the call but have turned their backs.

If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
