Roland Cortez reports from Arkansas: Lots of specks have shown up here as of late. Dry conditions have them limited on water most of the farmers have turned over there fields being so dry specks or constrained in area where water and food are more specks or on the move from the north with a front coming this week for should fellow down
Gus Laws reports from Princeton, California: A lot of specklebelly geese, pintails, and a few bunches of snow geese are in the valley. They are all sitting on the closed zone, specifically the north eastern part is where the specks mainly sit right now. We have no weather or anything to push them around. Lots of birds around, no weather to push them.
Bill Daniels reports from SW Louisiana: We are halfway through the first week of our season s are here but seem to be concentrated in certain areas with not much movement from the reports I have heard.Some people in traditionally good spots are struggling while others are having great hunts.Still hot Temps are probably not helping.Some snows and ducks are also slowly showing up.
Brady Duhon reports from Gueydan, Louisiana: Not seeing a lot of birds down here. Few high birds, hunted this morning was a little slower than Saturday and Sunday. pretty good north wind today hoping this front brings more birds. Not many concentrated birds seems that more people are starting to flood up for ducks and it’s scattering the specks. We just got our first rain in over a month. Lots of food so we shall see here, Saturday is duck opener.
Rickey Bourque reports from South Louisiana: We have decent birds numbers but the ones that are in this area are being very picky. I wasn’t able to get out and hunt this past weekend but some of they guys i talked to.that did said the birds were acting like it was the end of the season and they had seen it all. some of this may be in part to lack of wind and weather and they are still stacked in big concentrations. We have great weather moving in all week and i will be out all weekend hunting. hopefully with good reports and results.
Lance Stancik reports from Garwood, Texas: Specks have continued to push into the area. No huge numbers yet but more than enough to make for some great hunting. We are finishing up our second crop rice harvest which is giving the birds plenty of fresh feed. We have been killing a few on each duck hunt using speck floaters and full bodies to entice them to the spread.
