Overview of Georgia Quail Plantation - Albany
Here at this Georgia Quail Plantation they do one thing, and they do it well. They offer Traditional Bobwhite Quail Hunting. In the geographic heart of Georgia’s Classic Southern Quail Habitat. No one does it quite the same. And most certainly, no one does it better. No where in the south will you find a finer luxury quail hunt!
Georgia luxury Quail hunting here is unlike any other quail hunting you might have ever known and harkens back to a more genteel era. This is wingshooting as it once was, when sportsmen by day matched wits with wild birds in their native environs…and by night enjoyed fine dining, gracious service and luxurious surroundings. Plantation-style, challenging quail hunting remains alive.
Hunts are customized to the individual hunting party. With over thirty hunting quail-hunting2areas, extended visits provide the opportunity to experience a variety of terrains from pristine Longleaf pine forests to gently rolling wiregrass meadows along both sides of the picturesque Flint River.
Specially equipped jeeps transport hunters, guides, and dogs to fresh hunting areas every morning and afternoon. You will simply love this unspoiled scenery and classic South Georgia Quail Hunting landscape, with the Flint River running thru the heart of the Plantation.
The dining has been described as “Relaxed 5-Star” and truly sets us apart from all other Georgia wingshooting lodges. This combination of incredible dining, first-rate accommodations and quail hunting that is second to none is a big reason why 98% of guests choose to return and hunt with us again the following year.
The total Quail Hunting Experience at this Plantation is unlike any other Quail Hunting you might have ever known and hearkens back to a more genteel era, when the Quail were your longstanding neighbors and the coveys had names and the hunting was free and unconfined, as natural as lifting your shotgun and vest from the corner rack and heading afield after a long, lingering, hot Southern breakfast.
Now, this may seem to be an easy thing to say, but it is absolutely true, due in large part to both our GEOGRAPHIC and TOPOGRAPHIC location. And of course, their uncompromising commitment to the enjoyment and fulfillment of You, dear Friends and Guests.
You see, this Plantation is uniquely located in the very heart of the Classic Plantation Belt which stretches for roughly 100 miles through southern Georgia and into north Florida. The population density of Bobwhite Quail here is unlike that of any other place on earth. This is the very Epicenter of the Quail Hunting Universe, encompassing nearly 100 contiguous or near-contiguous large plantations, most of whom are completely private and date back to the Reconstruction Era.
And this plantation sits dead center in the heart of it all.
No other publicly accessible hunting plantation is so strategically positioned. No other publicly accessible hunting plantation is so completely surrounded by the huge PRIVATE hunting estates.
And no other publicly accessible hunting plantation offers the steady stream of indigenous birds that we encounter here.
Geographically, this is simply where the Quail have always been and where they CONTINUE to be, in gratifying abundance.
South Georgia has been famous for its bobwhite quail hunting for more than a century. The Plantation is located in the heart of plantation country on the banks of the Flint River. Hunting opportunities abound on both sides of the river which runs through the plantation. The birds – canny, quick and woods-wise bobwhite quail – lurk in unspoiled pine savannahs, amid rolling hardwood uplands, meadows and understories of broom sedge and wiregrass. Expert quail hunting guides will lead you through their haunts with well trained dogs.
Your quail hunting experience will be customized to the individual hunting party. The hunts can range from one to five days. With over twenty quail hunting areas, extended visits provide the opportunity to experience a variety of terrains. Specially equipped jeeps transport hunters, dogs and guides into the various areas. Morning hunts begin after breakfast and conclude around 12:00. Lunch is served around 1 p.m. Afternoon hunts run from 2-5 p.m
