Enjoy this clients explanation of his hunt at Davis Quail:

“This venue has something for everyone: Great Birds, Southern Hospitality at its best, Nice comfortable lodge, Great Southern cooking, etc

Unlimited birds is almost unheard of in today’s bird hunting venues.  Not at the Davis Quail Hunts.

The way they hunt: a person, usually Mazie heads out on horseback with the pointers -> A guide/driver follows, usually Colvin, loads the hunters into the wagon and pulls the  hunters (with flushing dogs, kenneled rested pointing dogs, gun rack, cooler for water and snacks) in a custom wagon/trailer ->  When the dogs go on point with Mazie, the trailer pulls up, hunters get into position and get loaded up and Colvin sends in the flushing dog.  Bang Bang Bang -> while the birds are being retrieved, Mazie heads out again, she finds another covey from horseback and the process starts over again.

So it is one covey after another –  3-6 coveys an hour are common..   You are welcome to walk if you want the exercise – sort of like playing golf and taking the golf cart or walking the course.

A break for a home cooked lunch and you are ready for the afternoon hunt.

Habitat is the key to any hunting operation.  The Davis Lodge spends as much time grooming the habitat to be Quail friendly (food plots, plentiful water, exceptional cover for hiding from predators, trails for the jeep) as they do grooming the best hunting dogs in the South.  Colvin is a dog trainer of over 40 years and a “Field Trial Hall of Fame” recipient.   Like the Football Hall of Fame – he is the Best of the Best and his dogs reflect that.

An exciting experience to watch and participate in.

Very safe, very controlled and a Bunch of Fun.   This style of hunting is great for veteran quail hunters, or inexperienced kids, wives, or families just learning. Cindy learned to Quail hunt here.”

The day isn’t over ’til you’ve experienced a tantalizingly delicious home-cooked southern meal!  Only then can you kick back and watch the sun set to the sweet sound of bobwhite quail calling.

Travelex Insurance       Ripcord Insurance

While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times!  The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible.  Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.

Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues.  It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.

Both companies offer evacuation insurance in addition to their travel insurance but Ripcord has more thorough coverage in this area.

The Ripcord membership and travel Insurance provides the highest levels of medical, security, evacuation and rescue services in the industry combined with travel insurance:

  • Remote rescue services from point of injury or illness
  • Medical evacuations to the member’s home hospital of choice
  • The best evacuation and rescue triggers that include rescues for medical conditions that will result in permanent injury in addition to just requiring hospitalization
  • Security extraction services for geopolitical events and natural disasters
  • Involuntary detention resolution services for members who are held against their will
  • Consulting services from special operations veterans, paramedics, nurses, and physicians
  • Travel insurance
