Arkansas Speckle Belly Goose Hunts

Our 3,000+ acre farm is also known for the numbers speckle belly geese that migrate down claiming our property as their home for the winter. Thousands of these birds arrive during late October and early November and they stay until they begin their northern migration.
The speckle belly responds to a call as well as the mallard does. They have exceptional eyesight, their ability to see makes them tough to kill. Once the decoys are set and all hunters are hidden these birds cant resist the sweet yodels and clucks that our guides have mastered. This "fowl language" typically sits them down in the decoys several yards in front of our hunters, giving our clients the perfect opportunity to shoot them.
