Southern California Seminar Series Helps Bird Hunters Find Public Land Places To Hunt Dove, Quail And Chukar

Do you have enough good places to hunt doves, quail, and chukar on public lands in Southern California? Do you know where the guzzlers are located in our local deserts and mountains? Are you positive you are hunting on legal hunting ground when you go out? Do you believe there are more good places to hunt gamebirds than there are upland hunters left in the region? 

If you answered “no” to any or all of these questions, Jim Matthews, a long-time WON writer and editor of the highly-acclaimed Western Birds newsletter, is doing a series of 20 seminars from Ventura to San Diego in August and September to help beginning, intermediate, and even veteran hunters find more places to hunt game birds and help them be more successful in the field.

The first seminar will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Fountain Valley Turner’s Outdoorsman store, and that will be followed with another 10 a.m. to noon session on Sunday, August 10, at the Oxnard Turner’s Outdoorsman. The seminars continue thought October 4. There is a complete list of times, dates, and locations on Matthews’ website,

Cost for each seminar is $50 per family (all members in the same household), and it includes a trial two-issue subscription to Matthews’ Western Birds hunting newsletter, which he calls the “most detailed scouting report published in the world.”
