California Guided Aoudad Hunts

Come hunt Free Range Auodad on the Central Coast of California. The free ranging herds thrive in the coastal mountain ranges. This is our most scenic hunt with views overlooking the ocean and Morro Bay Rock. The aoudads are a free ranging herd that move along the coastal ranches, so they come and go very quickly. Hunters who are interested in an aoudad hunt would go on a call list and would be called when they are on the ranch. Due to the movement of the herd, often there is a 1-2 day notice for the hunt. The hunt is worth the short notice and the aoudad are in very high demand.

This hunt will be an experience that you will never forget. Only a limited number of hunts are sold, so be sure to reserve your spot today!

I just wanted to say thank you to Randy Parker for his knowledge that he was able to share with me in the class and in the field. He was so patient with me and walked me through everything that the class has to offer. I could tell that he has been hunting for many years, he was also very big on safety with gun handling and where to have the perfect shot placement on the pig that he was leading me too. He taught me everything I needed to know on the range. We saw different trails and tracks that I will carry with me all the days of my hunting career. My wife came with my as a guest on the second day for the hunt and Randy made her feel like part of the team.Randy is also a good hearted man and fun to be around with and so easy to talk too. This class is well worth your time and money!! Randy showed me how to field dress the pig I shot and also how to skin it when we got back to the cleaning station.
