I got drawn for the second weekend of dove season at Carrizo Plains Ecological Reserve. Does anyone out there know anything about this place? It's going to be about a 3.5 hour drive for me and I was just wondering if they have loads of dove; enough to make the trip worth it. Thanks.

Carrizo by itself is not a dove hunting place by any stretch.
The Chimeneas unit/ranch, which I believe these hunts will be held at, is probably better.

I'm not gonna have time to scout. should be interesting. Chimeneas makes up Carrizo so I'm guessing these are the areas we can hunt. i hope DFG has some info because from what I've heard its rather large.

If you haven't ever been there its worth the trip. 14 miles by 39 miles. Looks like cowboy movies you saw as a kid.

What part is the eco reserve? I have scouted it earlier this year and did see some decent spots holding dove. I ask what part because it was much earlier this year that I scouted and forget what part the reserve is. is that the non shooting zone around soda lake?

I thought most of the carrizo area is open for hunting upland? Obviously not in the landmark areas, valley floor, soda lake, etc. but the BLM stuff --but is it more restricted?
