Additional Activities

Bitterwater Outfitters doesn’t stop at hunting. When you book a hunt with us, you’ll have access to the shooting range and fishing pond. The Ranch Headquarters also serves as a working cattle ranch. Depending on the time of your hunt, you might get to see a cattle drive or calf branding.

We are also located in the heart of wine country. Just a few miles west, you can go on a wine tasting tour or enjoy the Wine Festivals in Paso Robles, which are held throughout the year. A little farther west you’ll find a variety of beaches including Morro Rock, Pismo Beach, Cayucos and Cambria just to name a few. Hearst Castle and the elephant seals are also popular local attractions.

Non Hunter Guest

Non hunter guests are welcome to come enjoy the ranch and ride along on the hunts. A $150 fee will apply for each non hunting guest.

Big Game

.270 or bigger

Effective July 1, 2008, the California Fish and Game Commission modified the methods of take to prohibit the use of projectiles containing lead when hunting big game and nongame species in an area designated as the California condor range.

Bitterwater Outfitters is in the condor range and lead free ammo is required. For a list of certified nonlead ammunition, click here

As I am sure you already know, Ryan and I both shot bobcats today. As usual Bitterwater provided an outstanding experience. I wanted you to know that Ty was both knowledgeable and very friendly. This was our fourth hunt with you, and God willing there will be many more. Ty said you guys would get the cats to the taxidermist for us as we want one mounted and one made into a rug. Again, thanks for a wonderful time, Again! We will see you again soon.
