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 2019-2020 we had a 100% success rate, all high quality birds. Due to the large numbers of birds we saw last season, we expect our 2020-2021 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!

What a great hunt!!! Clayton Grant’s hunting operation is first class, fun and safe. Clayton is an exceptional guide who made sure that we were safe and ready for an exciting hunt. Even though we had only planned on harvesting one boar each, we ended up taking two more. Four boar in less than four hours. Now that’s my kind of hunt!
