California Valley Quail Hunting

Oak Stone Outfitters has the rare opportunity to offer great wild California valley quail hunts in beautiful wine country. We hunt roughly 25,000 acres in Monterey County near Paso Robles, CA as well as 150,000 acres near the Bay Area out of Hollister, CA. Habitat consists of gorgeous rolling grasslands with brush filled hillsides and flat valleys that provide great views. Our coveys average about 75 birds, with some exceeding 150 birds, which gives our customers the opportunity to harvest multiple birds from one covey. These quail are wild birds and because they are so low on the food chain they are extremely weary and always on alert. Our guides will get you on coveys and provide good shooting opportunities, however they can't kill the birds for you. Valley quail flush hard and sporadic which means the hunter needs to be ready and able to react to fast flushing birds. With very few places to hunt this unique species of quail don’t miss out on your chance to spend time with family and friends in breathtaking landscapes while experiencing some of the largest true wild quail covey rises that North America has to offer! Our California valley quail season runs from October 20th to January 27th.

The California Valley Wild Quail Hunt

Hunters can expect to be in the field for 4-5 hours with cold water available during the hunt.  Hunts will be conducted in the morning and evenings. There is a lot of walking involved so a good pair of hiking boots will be helpful.  The habitat consists of heavy brush in certain areas so a pair of brush pants will also be helpful.  Accommodations for all levels of hunters and all levels of fitness can be made. These are true wild quail with fast flushes and unpredictable patterns which makes for a challenging, rewarding, and thrilling hunt!
