Well, since you ask.....
How about out at Bond's corner?
Also the DFG fields up north in Nyland.
I used to hunt out by Brock Research, about 11 miles eastof El Centro, though last year there were many bee hives on the property.
Mostly I just go into the scrub, down by the border.
Let me know what you see. Hopefully the weather holds and no rain falls driving the birds into mexico.
I agree that hunting the fields when it is crowded is just plain stupid. Would rather stay home. I'll never go back down to that area to hunt. WIth all the border patrol and the over hunted fields its just not worth it.
