The Merriam turkey was introduced to Tejon Ranch in the 1980s. Over the years, our guided turkey hunting has become one of the best-kept secrets on the Ranch. With a limited number of birds harvested each year, we are able to manage these birds and give our hunters an excellent opportunity at harvesting a mature tom turkey. These birds are only hunted in the spring in order to keep the pressure at a minimum, allowing these birds the opportunity to mature and reproduce.
GUIDESTejon's guides have years of experience locating and calling birds and navigating the Ranch's terrain. Your guide will accompany you for the duration of the trip, ensuring the best possible hunting experience.
ACCOMMODATIONSAs a Tejon hunter, you'll spend your nights right on the Ranch in one of our private, fully equipped hunting lodges. Each lodge provides hot showers, towels, bedding, and a full kitchen for overnight stays.
MEALSOver your two-day hunt, you'll be provided with all meals including dinner prepared by our staff your first night on the Ranch. A continental breakfast, field lunch, and dinner are provided each day.
REQUIREMENTSHunters are expected to come prepared for vast and varying terrain, changing weather conditions and basic needs to care for game transportation when leaving the Ranch. Please note: Tejon Ranch requires NON-LEAD ammunition for your firearm and a valid California hunting license for all hunting on Tejon Ranch. Licenses are available for purchase at the Tejon Ranch Wildlife Management Office (if you are unsure of the requirements to purchase a California hunting license, please ask our staff).
