California Rio Grande Turkey Hunts

California Rio Grande Turkey Hunts

Oak Stone Outfitters hunts Rio Grande turkeys on the coast of California. Hunts are conducted west of Paso Robles, Templeton and Atascadero California. Hunts are scheduled for the California spring turkey season. The spring season runs from the last weekend in March and extends for 45 consecutive days, with archery and junior season staying open for two weeks after general season closes. Hunts are scheduled for two days. Hunters can expect to see 15-20 birds per day depending on weather conditions. We begin each hunt with decoys set up near known roost locations. Traditional calling methods are used on all spring turkey hunts. We hunt all day in the field, typically taking a break for lunch. The hunt concludes at 5 pm each day, which is a predetermined time set by the California department of Fish and Wildlife. Full camouflage is recommended, including full face masks while turkey hunting unless hunting out of ground blinds.

What to Expect

What to Expect

Hunters can expect to start the morning off near a known roost site with hopes of getting a gobbler when he comes down.  We use decoys on every morning set up and try to use them throughout the day if the situation is suitable.  After the morning sit we use a “run and gun” method of hunting which includes using locator calls and traditional calling to find gobblers.
