    Quail report 10/15

    Me and my buddy John went to the IV for the quail opener. Hopes weren't too high with the continued drought but we went and hit several spots which have held some birds in the past. First spot no signs of bird life. Second spot we could hear birds calling from an extremely dense patch of...

    If it hops, it drops 9/2

    After shooting doves in the IV on opening day, my buddies slept in at the motel on Friday morning and didn't want to go out again early, so I decided to mix it up a little. Headed out alone, found a good brush line next to an alphalpha field and it was fur ball city. Pretty fun and my crock pot...

    WON bird blast

    Did anyone else read Western Outdoor News last week? Page 1 story the writer sitting next to a pile of "feral pigeons" in El Centro. His guide was the guy running the largest hunt club down there. WON has a DFW rep on their editorial staff so I'm assuming we can legally shoot pigeons "aka...

    7/29 It was 111 degrees, so I went hunting

    Had a job in Palm Springs so I brought my guns with me thinking I might have time to run down to the IV and shoot at something. Driving down Hwy 111 I looked at my temp guage and it was 111 degrees outside, so I figured that's too much of a coincidence and must be some sort of sign that I...

    Braved the cold, treacherous winter seas for its bounty 2/10

    11/25 2nd season dove IV report

    I don't usually travel so far from the OC for work, but I intentionally took a job in the low desert so I would have an excuse to run down to the IV. I didn't hunt at all during the first season and didn't know what to expect. Checked out a new area (new to me) in the north end of the Valley...

    Last chance lobster and a diver in the harbor

    Decided to hoop LB on closing night. Current was bass ackwards from normal and that seemed to shut them down. Ended up with only 3, although one was a six pounder. Did have some wide-open calico fishing between pulls, caught lots of fish to two pounds and got freight trained and broken off...

    What's the deal with Pigeons?

    I was in the IV for the dove opener, and there was a handout in the hotel lobby with a map of the DFW fields and a summary of regulations. It said it is illegal to shoot rock doves (pigeons), ground doves, and Inca doves. I can't find anything in the regulations about shooting pigeons/rock...

    150 Yard Rule

    A buddy of mine was cited by a DFW warden in the IV on the dove opener for shooting in a field within 150 yards of a metal warehouse building that is part of a grain/seed plant. He told me the ticket cites section 3004 which says: 3004. (a) It is unlawful for any person, other than the owner...
