Well no more duck hunting because of the draught and lake levels. The same goes for upland birds. You may see a rabbit or two. Bass fishing is till good though.

Not worth hunting there. Upland game is gone and waterfowl has been stopped due to lack of habitat.

Was just there not long ago and there are hundreds of quail in the campground, but its like they know to stay there. They only hangout in the non-hunting zones.

It's a big dry area that holds very little wildlife. That being said, I usually get a shot or two at some dove when I go out... but thats it, a shot maybe two. There are dove, rabbits, snakes and if you are insanely lucky you may find a quail (the lake has been closed for waterfowling for years now, so no duck-hunting)- and again it's fairly barren. It's usually not over-hunted because there is nothing there so most guys don't bother. They have special rules at Perris- Shotgun only area that opens to the public 2 weeks after the dove season starts. Sometimes if I can't sweat it on at San Jac, I'll wander over to Perris to try and nab a couple of dove or a bunny but I usually leave empty handed. The short answer is if you're already in the area it's a great way to sport a good walk, but don't go out of your way to hunt there... not worth the trip.

Fake live bird launcher if you can shoot a full load shotgun there I don't think they will mind .22 blanks

You are probably better off heading down to Davis Rd. near San Jac and using the dog training area there. Be careful with the .22 - if I'm not mistaken, if you get caught with ANYTHING other than a shotgun at Perris/ San Jac you are in deep doo-doo. Might want to call and ask to be sure...

Mountains north of Perris?

Hey Quailman,

Are you referring to the mountains north of San Jac? The mountains north of Perris are close to homes on the other side...

Thanks!
