    "This is going to an exciting season for Quail Unlimited and southern California dove and quail hunters," said Dick Haldeman, western regional director for QU. "Working with the California State Committee, Riverside has help with the Department of Fish and Game to open over 300 acres for hunting at Camp Cady near Barstow with the purchase of a well system to provide crops for dove and pheasant hunting.

    "The chapter was also key to funding and providing seed for the planting of nearly 1,400 acres of new hunting lands in the Imperial Valley, and it provided some of the best hunting in the region this past season," said Haldeman. The Imperial Valley project is a partnership with Desert Wildlife Unlimited, The DFG Game Bird Heritage program, and Pheasants forever.

    These projects are in addition to the chapters normal habitat work of clearing salt cedar from desert water courses and water projects in the San Bernardino Mountains.  For additional information contact David Ortiz at (909) 606-8708 or e-mail
