California Guided Upland Game

Bitterwater Outfitters offers guided California dove and quail hunts on our private ranches located in central California. Brush, oaks, grain fields and ponds make prime habitat for upland game. Both guided dove and quail hunts are exciting California hunts with access to 65,000 acres of private hunting land. The ranches have breathtaking views and you are sure to find your game. There is plenty of cover and they feed on the grain and alfalfa fields. We have seen a lot of hatches the past year. The population is strong and it looks like it will be a great upcoming season.

 You can combine a upland game hunt with any of our other guided California hunts to maximize your experience with Bitterwater Outfitters. Book today!

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.
