Are you serious? I already told my friend thats where we're gonna go, we really dont have much of a choice since some land that i had access to was burned in the cowiche fire. I guess we will find our for ourselves.

Sunnyside not bad if you walk aways from the parking areas. Lots of birds there

Well it was sort of a fluster cluck, was really foggy at the main lot closest to the river, and there were about 6 or 7 rigs parked there, since you couldnt see 30 yards we dicided not to go out there because we didnt want to get shot by someone. Found a spot that had probably 300 quail, but the brush was so thick in most places that we could shoot because there was no way to get the birds. We ended up finding some in a couple other spots and and made for a decent hunt even though we had to go to multiple spots.
