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!

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


It was a really good experience going on a hunt with Bitterwater Outfitters. I loved staying at the ranch headquarters. The operation is an old western, down to earth feel. Clayton was great to talk to and be around. Everyone that I know that has gone keeps coming back. If someone doesn’t come back, they don’t like to hunt.
