Wild Pig Hunt
On behalf of my three friends and I, we want to thank you, Ryan Piltz and Jared Christensen, for a successful wild pig hunt at Oak Stone Outfitters.
Ryan and Jared are excellent hosts, guides, coaches, and ambassadors of Oak Stone Outfitters. Each day Ryan and Jared placed each of us in a position to shoot a good-sized wild pig. Two of my friends had never shot a wild pig before and one of those two was on his first hunting trip ever. My other friend had not shot a wild pig since 1996. Each hunter learned new techniques for a successful hunt, was grateful for the coaching and advice offered by Ryan and Jared, and we are all looking forward to returning to Oak Stone Outfitters in the future. The lodging and guest accommodations were elegant and comfortable.
Oak Stone Outfitters is an excellent guide service that lives up to its reputation for providing successful and safe hunting experiences from the beginner to the experienced big game hunter. It is a please to recommend Oak Stone Outfitters to any person seeking an exciting and challenging hunting experience on California's renowned central coast.

The French Ranch was beautiful and full of game and bird life. Recent rains made it a vivid green that I was ready for after a long winter in Alaska. Matt and I were both shooting long bows. It's lost on neither of us how much extra work and effort that means for any guide.
On this particular hunt we were very lucky to have Tyson Thompson as our guide. I know a little bit about hard work and I appreciate it when I see it. Tyson worked tirelessly to put hope, optimism and escitement into every minute of every day. He succeeded. Matt and I very much appreciated Tyson's attitude, skill and effort. We had multiple sightings, stalks, and shots on good pigs, and Matt arrowed a nice boar, all becaouse of Tyson's skill and hard work.
For those of us used to tent camping in the wilderness, the accomodations, food, and drink were beyond excellent. Matt and I delivered Matt's boar to J&R Natural Meats and Sausage in Paso Robles. Jerry Christensen could not have been more professional or helpful. Matt and I both look forward to hunting with Oak Stone Outfitters again.

I have hunted Africa, Canada, Mexico and most of the Western US and Chad and his operation are top tier. Well organized, nice accomodations, well managed ranches, and Chad is one of the best guides or ph's I've hunted with.
Our dove hunt opening day was a success, could not of asked for a better first hunting experience. The three of us came home with 11 birds each, which is the most I have ever come home with. I used to help a guide/ gun dog trainer in high school out of San Luis and Ragged Point, I felt like I was always busting my rear for clients, and told myself some day I am going to hopefully have a guided hunt with someone who would do the same. Ryan was that guide, and Tyson (bird dog) was an excellent help despite all of the difficult scenarios for a bird dog having three hunters with shots happening all around. The spot Ryan had us on for the dove was just perfect. I was truly impressed. We will be back. Hopefully for some pheasants or pigs next time.

Wild Pig Hunt
Firstly, I would like to say that because of my hunt at Oak Stone Outfitters, I am re-energized to do more hunting once again! Over the last number of years I’ve had some less than outstanding hunting experiences with outfitters in different parts of the country. That all changed during my hunt with Oak Stone Outfitters and guide Ryan Piltz. From the moment I arrived at the Adobe House and was met by the guide, there was a great feeling of truly being welcomed and a genuine excitement to get out in the field and get some hunting done! When a client goes hunting with a guide I think there is an expectation that the guide will work very hard with you to find game. Sometimes weather, adverse conditions or bad shooting put up a bit of a roadblock, but we still expect our guide to continue to work hard to make our experience a positive one. I wanted you to know how pleased I am with my experience. So, I wanted to compliment you in having a very excellent program with outstanding employees. I also met Wyatt on Wednesday as well and he was so friendly and helpful that it just continued to make my experience an outstanding one.

As I sit in the beautiful adobe lodge house, I just must express my gratitude to Chad and the amazing Tyson for an intense, amazing and thrilling hunt. I have been a lot of places and flung arrows at lots of things but my Blacktail hunt with these gentlemen was even better than I hoped. They understood my goals and worked hard for me to take my first Blacktail with a bow. They know the deer, the properties and how to hunt them. They said something would work, I didn't think so, but they were spot on. I recommend Oakstone Outfitters highly for their professionalism, full service and now, friendship. Anyone considering Blacktail, pigs or Tule Elk should not consider anyone else. You guys rock!!

Just thought I would say how much we enjoyed our hunt with Tyson and Wyatt. Top notch people. Will be coming back. Thanks again!

After my 3rd successful hunt with Chad Weibe, I love the fact that each time is like the first time...exciting, fun and rewarding. Staying at the vineyard house and hunting dusk to dawn where real wild animals live, not planted, is the best. Can't wait for our Varmint hunt this spring!
Just went on my first hunt with Oak Stone Outfitters and could not be happier. Chad was very professional, had a plan for the hunt, got me in the right area and well within range first thing in the morning. I was able to harvest a very nice pig. He then took the animal back to the cleaning shed and did an excellent job gutting and skinning the animal in near record time with no loss of meat. Chad also took the time to put me in contact with other professionals when I asked about out of the country hunts
Just finished a hunt with Chad at Oakstone Outfitters. It's my second hunt with him and his outfit, and there will definitely be more. He goes over the top to be sure his hunters get their game. The accommodations, his professionalism and the amount of game seen on the hunt give Oakstone Outfitters 5-stars +.
Chad runs a wonderful operation called Oak Stone Outfitters. My son and I have been out with Chad several times for both Wild Boar and for Deer. Chad tries his very best and does every time to put you onto very high quality animals, be it Wild Boar or beautiful Deer. He is also very personable and extremely honest as the day is long! He is extremely patient and will definitely put you on an animal of your liking. We have hunted with him for over 5 years now and have always had an extremely great time! My son shot his first deer and first wild boar with Chad. He is great with kids as a plus! All of Chad's Guides are hard working as well. This outfitter, will get you on animals period. Its up to you to seal the deal. Also, if you are looking for Taxidermy work, there is none finer than the work Chad and his shop do. The animals come out looking fantastic! I highly recommend Oak Stone Outfitters for hunting and for taxidermy.
Had an amazing hunt with Wyatt from Oakstone outfitters. I booked a turkey hunt for my dad and I to get our first birds and they didn’t waste any time getting us on turkeys. They have an incredible amount of land to hunt on and tons of game. My dad and I booked for two days and were able to get our birds on the first morning without a problem. Will be using them for any future hunts in that area of California.
Unparalleled hunting experience. A real hunt, not some canned “adventure”. First class guide and comfortable facilities. Well managed ranch. Beautiful country. Tons of game. Took two big pigs - one boar, one sow. Highly recommended.
My turkey hunting experiences with Oak Stone Outfitters have been awesome! We usually meet at 5am and the excitement starts when we get in Chad’s Truck. Chad goes over all the different ranches where his scouts saw turkeys the day before. He has it all planned out. We may not get a turkey on the first ranch if they don’t cooperate but with the acres Chad has we are able to cover a lot of ground and always get our Turkeys before the day is over. I have been 100% successful every time I hunt with Oak Stone outfitters. I shot a turkey with a 13 inch beard on my first hunt. I highly recommend Oak Stone Outfitters!
If you are looking to hunt anything in California, look no further than Chad at Oakstone Outfitters. He is easily the best guide out there and can get you on em. Have been hunting with him for years and would recommend him to anyone.
My husband and I have been hunting all our lives. This hunt was fun with plenty of game. Chad knew where to go and was completely professional. He has access to a ton of properties which makes taking an animal really easy. We were able to take our 5 year old son along and everyone had a blast. Will definitely go back.
I have been hunting turkeys with Oak Stone Outfitters every year for the last 6 years. We have been successful 100% of the time. We always get on Turkeys and the guides always call them in close enough to shoot. The guides go above and beyond to scout the day before and put us in position to be successful. I have also pig hunted 3 times with Oak Stone, also, 100% success on the pigs. They have 2 lodges, I have stayed at both. I recommend both. They have access to all different kinds of ranches along the central coast. They continue to pick up ranches because the land owners know how well Oak Stone respects and manages the land for long term success and continued game harvest. Word spreads quick when you do it right. You better book before I do!
Chad, Tyson, Wyatt and the rest of the team provide a top shelf hunting experience on large private ranches. In a single day we often see loads of pigs, wall hanger bucks, and elk. The scenery is cool, really cool... Can’t wait until our next trip.
Chads a first class gentleman with great ranches and a shared love of the hunt.
First guided hunt and it was a great experience. Chad is an extremely friendly guide and has tons of hunting stories and knowledge that he is more than willing to pass on.
Chad’s a great guide. I’ve used him for Deer, Hogs, Turkey, and Elk. I always have a great time hunting with Chad. Thats why I always keep coming back. Definitely one one the best guides on the Central Coast.
Chad runs a great guide service. This is a legitimate operation that gets out and hunts. We always see game weather hunting pigs, deer, or turkey. Hiking the ranches he hunts is worth the trip, awesome properties.
Love hunting with this group of guides. Knowledgeable and some of the best land access to be found in California. Always have a great time. Have hunted with them 10+ times.
2 pig hunts in, 2 pigs down = 1 repeat customer. Friendly and knowledgeable guides, tons of action, highly recommended.
Newbie to hunting and Chad and Tyson provide a great way to learn sport and with their private ranches odds are in your favor!
Great experience. Good hunting!
I've hunted and fished with many amazing guides over the years across the lower 48, but Chad and the Oakstone team are indeed in a class of their own. Chad truly goes above and beyond to ensure your chances at success, and every hunt with him has been unique and exhilarating and has exceeded my expectations greatly. With access to some of the most beautiful and pristine properties in California and Chad's extensive knowledge of these properties, you will have plenty of opportunities to be successful, which is a hard thing to guarantee in hunting. Chad is my go-to outfitter for big game and upland bird hunting, you truly will not find a more confident, personable, and professional outfitter in California.
