California Guided Turkey Hunts

Bitterwater Outfitters features several thousand acres of private turkey ground in San Luis Obispo, Monterey, and Fresno counties in California. We hunt on some of the most beautiful ranches in the area where the Rio Grande turkeys are plentiful. We offer a fully guided California turkey hunt using calling and spot and stalk methods. The rolling terrain with oak canopies and creek bottoms make for prime turkey habitat. The increase in rainfall has resulted in a strong population this year.  In 2017-2018 we had a 100% success rate, all high quality birds. Due to the large numbers of birds we saw last season, we expect our 2018-2019 season to be one for the books. Our expert guides will get you on the bird you've been waiting for. Book your hunt 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.
