Now That It Has Stopped Raining, The Back Road Is Open Again For Use !




We are open for business and following our regular season schedule.  


Roosters will return with the end of the California State Pheasant Season, on Sunday December 26th.  We usually switch back to hens sometime in mid-February.


We recognize that COVID hasn’t disappeared, but we are operating on a “business as usual” basis.  AT PRESENT ,YOU MUST WEAR A FACE COVERING WHILE IN THE CLUBHOUSE, but otherwise we are open without COVID-related restrictions – please understand that this is a dynamic situation and is subject to change.

Overnight camping and fishing are available to our members and their guests.  Remember, the Club is closed to all activity from Monday at 4:30pm through Wednesday at 7:00am.  If you are camping or fishing overnight, the Clubhouse and its restrooms are again available for your use.  Please remember that you still need to sign-in / sign-out at the Clubhouse when fishing or camping.

We presently require face coverings, while in the Clubhouse, in accordance with State and County regulations.  We understand that everyone needs to be mindful of their own health and its potential effect on others.  If you feel ill, or have recently been exposed to someone who is ill, please do not visit the Club, and please continue to wash your hands regularly, especially when you are in the Clubhouse.  Do what you need to do to stay healthy, and be considerate of those around you.

We want to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and help over the unprecedented, past 18 months.  No matter the issue, our Country works best when we work together.  We look forward to seeing you, on your next visit to the Club.



Due to increased demand, we recently closed our membership for the current season.  We encourage you to make a deposit for the 2022-2023 Season, if you anticipate wanting to hunt next year.  We accept applications on a first come, first serve basis for existing members.  New member applications will be finalized after the deposit period ends in May.


Established 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, and picnicking available to our members and their families. During the spring and summer, several local dog clubs host field events.

Hunter Safety Courses, along with introductory orientation sessions are offered to familiarize new members to the Club.  We encourage and enjoy family participation which support our Junior hunters, by offering activities and safety classes.  Our personable and seasoned staff are dedicated to insuring your success.  Please call for an appointment to meet us, tour our operations, and or ask any questions not covered in our Rules and Regulations.
