3 Day Pig and Turkey hunt. To be scheduled April 10 – May 1, 2024.  Hunter is responsible for license ($100), food, and lodging.  One of the best kept secrets in the lower forty-eight is the plentiful game to be found in California. JP Guide Service provides access to some of the densest game populations to be found in the state for turkeys, blacktail deer, and wild hogs. The unique location for deer and turkey hunting allows you to be hunting approximately thirty-five minutes from San Francisco, forty-five minutes from Half Moon Bay, and two and a half hours from Monterey.

  1. PY Framed "Slipping up the Backtrail" Limited Edition Print **

3rd Conservation Print (2005). "Slipping Up the Backtrail," by Desmond McCaffrey. Commissioned by the Pope & Young Club, Alberta wildlife artist Desmond McCaffrey has created the Club’s 3rd Conservation Print. The scene depicts a northwoods field edge with a bowhunter’s attention focused on a small buck – in fact, the hunter is drawing to shoot. Meanwhile, a super buck emerges from the woods, totally undetected by the hunter. Any veteran bowhunter will appreciate the subtle humor and relate to the experience.
