NM bird hunting....where do I go?!?

My friend and I want to go hunting for quail or doves here in New Mexico but have to idea where to go. We live in Abq so the closer to there the better. We where thinking about somwhere in the Jemez but arent sure where its legal to go. We'd like to camp overnight somewhere and go in the morning. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go? Thanks.

Turbo hunter:
If you go to the Jemez you are going to be disappointed. For the dove and quail, you need to look south no in the mountains. For the doves if you want big Asian dove look around Roswell (I think they came with the UFO crash). Closer to home you can look around Bernardo NM. There is a lot of BLM west of there and some tanks. If you need more information PM me and I’ll give you directions. Good think to do before you head out, hit the skeet range out at the city range for some target practice.
Good luck

There are a few dove on the east side of the jemez in the lower elevations above Espanola or below los alamos but for real numbers go south. Roswell Carslbad area. You can pick up land status maps at your nearestBLM office or the Gazetteers that they sell at walmart show status but not as much detail.
