Big Bar • California is home to a wide variety of game birds. At Trinity Fork Outfitters we target mountain quail, valley (California) quail, sooty grouse, ruffed grouse, and band-tailed pigeons. Doves can also be found incidental to hunting other species. We have permits to operate on thousands of acres of incredible upland habitat. We are working on adding chukar and Gambel's quail properties to the list. All of our upland bird hunts are over pointing dogs that are also trained to retrieve. Mountain Quail If we had to choose one upland bird to hunt the rest of our life, it would have to be the mountain quail. If it wasn't for the beautiful landscapes they call home, they win the award for craftiness and excellent table fare. As the name implies, these are the birds of the mountains. The mountain quail loves brush choked hillsides next to water. It's common to find mountain quail in the vicinity of sooty grouse, ruffed grouse, band-tailed pigeon, and squirrel, depending on the part of the state. We also find valley quail in the same spots as mountain quail in some lower elevation locations. The season starts early, runs late, and bag limits are generous. There is no place better than California to chase mountain quail. 2022-23 Q1 General Season: September 10 – January 29 Daily Bag Limit: 10 combined quail Valley (California) Quail It's true the valley quail inhabit lower elevation valleys of California. They also can be found higher in altitude in the foothills and beyond. Think of briars and thick brush pockets intermixed with grassy openings. During optimal wet years the valley quail hatches can be insane. When cooperative they can hold tight for dogs and explode like bullets out of the briars. Can be effectively combined with mountain quail, squirrel, dove, and rabbit hunting. 2022-23 General Season: October 15 – January 29 Daily Bag Limit: 10 combined quail
