About the Hunt

Rancho's Diverse Hunts: Spotlight on Partridge

Here at Rancho Cristobal, we pride ourselves not only on the quality of our hunting, but the variety we offer as well. All our hunting options are world class, and the seasonal opportunity for partridge is no exception – this experience is not to be missed.

Partridge Peak Season: Summer Hunts

With a peak season of May through August, the ability to hunt partridge adds another exciting option available to our guests. While staying with us you will be able to head out in the afternoon for a thrilling and unique hunt.

Easy Reach: Hunting Grounds Near the Lodge

Our exclusive hunting grounds are only a 10–30-minute drive from the lodge, meaning you will spend more time in the field and less time traveling. The maximum number of guests for each hunt is 4, keeping you involved with the action and ensuring as much action as possible.

Thrills with Dogs: Partridge Hunting Experience

Partridge hunts are done with the help of our highly trained dogs – and as most hunters know watching a good dog work can be as enjoyable as the hunt itself. The dogs will locate the birds, point, and wait for your signal to flush the bird for the shot. 

Guided Hunts: Partridge Expertise

Hunters will be accompanied by our professional guides who will be there to provide instruction and their expertise during the hunt. They will be able to help you work with the dogs and educate hunters about the local area and hunting styles.
