Concurrent with the beginning of the California State Pheasant Hunting Season, the Club will release “hens only” from Saturday, November 9th through Sunday, December 22nd.  See the Hens Only During State Season tab on this website for more details.

Keep in mind that we are a Zone B Club and Hastings Island Hunting Preserve’s pheasant season runs through the middle of March, and is not effected by the State Season.

 As of July 1, 2019 Regulations regarding Non-Lead Ammunition come into full effect and you are no long allowed to hunt anywhere in California using lead ammunition.  Click here to read details of the new law on the Department of Fish and Wildlife website.

THE CLUB HAS NON-LEAD AMMUNITION FOR SALE.  Although there are new State regulations regarding the sale of all ammunition in California, we are set up to help you through this process.  Feel free to call the Club before you come out, so that we can help you be prepared to make your purchase.  While there is a “process” that everyone must follow, it is generally not difficult, if you are prepared ahead of time.

Pheasant-Front2Established for the 1968-1969 hunting season, Hastings Island Hunting Preserve is a state licensed, Zone B, pheasant club located 70 miles east of San Francisco and 35 miles southwest of Sacramento. Nestled in California’s Sacramento / San Joaquin Delta on Hastings Island, this private ranch contains an expansive 4,700 acres, with over 800 acres dedicated solely to prime upland bird cover. The balance of this family farming operation is occupied by Hastings Island Land Company, which provides a rich habitat of Delta irrigated alfalfa, corn, wheat and safflower.

Hastings Island is surrounded by river on all sides, providing you with a variety of hunting, fishing and outdoor recreational opportunities.  There are activities to keep you and your family busy throughout the year. We have dog training, fishing, trapshooting, camping and picnicking available to our members and their families. During the spring and summer, several local dog clubs host field events.

Pheasant-Side2Our personable, seasoned staff is dedicated to insuring your success as well as your safety. We offer Hunter Safety Courses, as well as orientation classes to familiarize new members with the Club, our employees and our rules and regulations. We encourage family participation by offering safety classes and activities that support our junior hunters. Please feel free to call for an appointment to meet us and tour our operation.
