Trophy California Tule Elk Hunts
Oak Stone Outfitters manages private ranches for tule elk hunting. Those ranches work with the state of California to receive guaranteed landowner tags for tule elk bulls and cows. Every year we receive 3-5 bull tags and 3-5 cow tags. Those tag numbers are reassessed every year based on the population of elk on our ranches. The elk herds are managed for trophy quality bulls.
Our PLM (private land management) tags are valid for use from July 1st – December 31st. We schedule our hunts from mid July through September, during the peak of the rut. Bull elk hunts are scheduled for five days of hunting; though additional days may be added. Cow elk hunts are scheduled for two days of hunting. Trophy bulls average between 285” – 330” with some exceeding 340", most bulls make Boone and Crockett minimum and multiple bulls taken in the top 10 for B&C and SCI record books. Spot and stalk methods are used as well as traditional calling during the peak of the rut.
What to Expect
Hunters can expect delicious meals and luxurious accommodations while on their Tule elk hunt as well as plenty of action and picturesque views. We have a couple different lodges that can suite any needs you may have. Hunts are conducted in the mornings and evenings while we take a lunch break during midday. You are allotted 5 days of hunting but due to our intensive scouting and great habitat there is a good chance you will have an elk down before the 5th day. Oak Stone Outfitters is located in beautiful wine country and only 25 min from Paso Robles which will provide you and your guests a chance to explore the beautiful central coast area of California.
