Arkansas Specklebelly Goose Hunts
That un-mistakable laughter in the air as you look skyward. For most people they have no clue what species of waterfowl may be flying above, but to even the youngest waterfowler, these laughs are the sound of the white-fronted goose. Or to most people a specklebelly goose. Named after their white-front above the bill or the speckling of their belly, these geese, when you hear the distinct sound and laughter cause a hunters adrenaline to start flowing.
These specklebelly geese tend to be very wild and not tolerant of any human interaction, causing them to be one of the most sought after geese for any waterfowler’s trophy room. Even though these highly prized geese are tough to hunt, Mike Bogy of Flying Feathers Guide Service has been one of the few that has mastered the calling and successfully hunting these white-fronted geese. As a professional goose hunting guide and call maker, Mike has fine-tuned his specklebelly calling throughout the years, placing all his clients on amazing guided goose hunts.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to hunt these elusive and prized geese, contact Mike at Flying Feathers for your next guided goose hunt. Leave the scouting and calling to Mike, and worry about the shooting and watching those feathers fly!

What to Expect at Flying Feathers
When hunting with Flying Feathers Guide Service, you should expect a laid back and enjoyable hunt. Our guides enjoy the fellowship as much as the kill. We can tell stories and jokes, laugh and carry on in the blind. When the ducks get close and your guide is calling you should have your faces tight and ready to shoot when your guide calls the shot. We like to call the shots because it gives everyone ample opportunity to shoot and it will increase the chance of taking more than one bird at a time. However, it is your hunt and as long as safety isn’t a concern and you think you can kill, go ahead and get some!
