Well I went out this morning at 0500 and headed to Niland to see what the birds were doing and try to locate some of them DWU fields. I drove along the Highline Canal and saw many areas that a person could shoot a limit of birds. Find a place that has some green vegitation and the birds were there. If the area had a couple trees even better. It seemed like most the areas along the canal a person can shoot legally. Not posted or cultivated. Let me know if Im wrong. The DWU fields off of Davis/Howell/English had birds as well. I got to that area around noon. Most the birds were sitting under the bigger bushes in the shade, (see there not as dumb as we thought). The temp. was 107 at that time. At 0800 it was 94. I was unable to find most of the fields due to not understanding how to read the canal numbers and gate numbers. If you know please post how. Or better directions than whats mentioned in WON. If your taking kids, or dog make sure you bring lots of cold water, drinks. It got hot fast. Most the fields have no shade either. Hope this helps some of yoou out. I can not shoot the opener, have to work.
