The High Desert Hunt Club at Tejon Ranch is southern California's premier upland bird hunting club. Located about an hour north of Los Angeles and 45 minutes south of Bakersfield, the High Desert Hunt Club offers over 6,400 acres and 35 Hunting fields, each field providing different terrain and challenges. Members and guests can enjoy great bird hunting and the comforts of the lodge headquarters, the historic Beale summer home. The season runs from mid-October through March. Hunters new to the club are welcome to hunt one time without a membership to see if they enjoy the experience: we are confident you will leave wanting to become a member. Our dog handlers will accompany you to provide basic instruction and make sure your hunt is fun and safe. The 2013-2014 season starts on October 19th and runs though the end of March, depending on weather.
