It is getting harder to find spots every year, I would like to go to Yuma once just to see what it's like.

I bet it is. I don't eat doves so I haven't hunted them for probably 30 years now -- about the time since my grandad died. He loved to eat them. Thus we went hunting quite a bit. In the 1960s, my parents and my granddad lived next to Alhambra HS at 39th Ave.& Camelback. Back then Camelback ended up as a dirt road before reaching Luke AFB. It took about 15 minutes to get there, and the hunting was excellent with both food sources and resting spots for the birds. We could hunt and watch the jets taking off. In fact, we witnessed a flameout once where the pilot bailed out right after take-off. The plane crashed in a huge fireball just south of Van Buren that we could see from where we were.  The paper ran an article the next day saying the pilot suffered a broken leg when he landed because he ejected so close to the ground.

If I wanted to hunt doves now, I don't have a clue as to where to go other than one of the AGFD wildlife areas such as Arlington. I bet they get hammered, though.
