    Eurasian Hunt 7/28. Brawley / Calipatria.

    Started out the morning at the grain pile just outside the city limits of Calipatria. Absolutely full of life, but the only problem was that the sky was full of Mourning and White Wing dove, with the normal share of Euros in between. I only took no brainer shots at the birds just to make sure...

    New to SOCAL, looking for pheasant

    To be honest, I've had extremely good luck in the cut alfalfa and abandoned fields outside and around Calexico the last three years.

    I do know that it is required but if anyone could explain the situation that would be great. Better to learn now before heading out again

    Offshore 182 to 9 bank for nothing

    got to bait at 630 for solid dines. Weather rolled and stayed bad through the day, continuing to get a little worse as things went on. Came up on three dry paddies and then came up on a solid streak of about 300 terns following what looked like a pod of porpoise. Trolled around it, even marked...
